On Saturday 30th March, Newport County AFC handed their match against Coventry City over to the kids in the first ever County Kids Take Over. Eliot took over the PA announcing duties, Ruby was managing the team, Ollie was in-charge of kit, and Junior Chairman Charlie was making all the decisions!

I would like to thank Newport County for the eggs-ellent opportunity of being a Junior Journalist. I really enjoyed meeting my heroes David Pipe and Mike Flynn.
