Ahead of this evening's match, we take a brief look at what you can enjoy in your Newport County AFC Match Day Programme ... all for just £3

PLAYER INTERVIEW

Academy Starlet, Lewis Collins, speaks to Ryan Robinson about making his first team debut last season, being named on the bench against Cambridge United, an incredible U18s Academy Trip to the Netherlands and attempting to follow in the footsteps of his brother (Wolverhampton Wanderers' Aaron Collins).

 

A GAME OF TWO HALVES

"Northern Irish football does not figure much in the headlines and is well down the pecking order for mainland UK sports coverage after English, Scottish and Welsh Premiership football," writes Colin Everett as he delves into the intrigue and fascination of Northern Irish football and its quiet connection to County's 1980/81 Season.

 

AMBER IN THE ATTIC

It has not escaped most County fans that our 2018/19 Carabao Cup journey has, so far, pitted us against Club's from cities more associated with their world-renowned educational institutions than their football teams. 

However, Chris Shingler's article will focus on a previous Festive Fixture between Newport County AFC and Oxford United.  A "topsy-turvy" match which took place on the 28th December 1982 and ended 3-0.

 

TODAY'S THE DAY

The day (of course) is 28th August.  The year? 2012.  The opposition?  Hereford United.  

Now-manager, Michael Flynn, and defender David Pipe both lined up in a team which would go on to beat one of our nearest rivals 2-0 but those are just the facts.  Phil Tanner recalls one of the best goals he's ever seen live and a performance then-manager Justin Edinbrough told the BBC was "an outstanding advert for the Conference".

 

COUNTY IN THE COMMUNITY

The County in the Community Cup – a newly formed competition between the Bengal Dragons and the County in the Community Futsal team – was hotly contested at Lliswerry School on Tuesday.

 

FAN ZONE

A sombre mood takes over our Fans Page this match as we remember two County fans who've recently passed away.  We also enjoy some wonderful photos of you enjoying supporting your team.

SCOUTING AROUND

Chief Scout, Paul Molesworth, talks Oxford's recent upturn in form and tells us a little about what he learned from watching their victory over Burton Albion on Saturday.

 

CLWB SPYTTY

Spytty the Dog welcomes two mascots, Niamh and Joseph, to Rodney Parade for our Carabao Cup Match and also sets some tough quiz questions such as: which County player's career started at Rushden & Diamonds?
