COMMERCIAL| Alex Eagle appointed Commercial Manager at Newport County AFC

26 October 2018

Newport County AFC is delighted to announce the arrival of Alex Eagle as Commercial Manager.  Alex will have the all-important job of driving sales and revenues that increase County’s ability to compete successfully on and off the pitch.

Alex has an impressive background in sales having spent over 10 years in various roles around the UK including his most recent position at the Football Association of Wales, where he worked on the national team’s headline sponsorships.

Born and bred in Newport, Alex has had close ties to Newport County AFC for many years now, and is a familiar face in and around the Club.  He is a former player in the Club’s Academy system - then lead by Glyn Jones - and over the last two years, he has taken on a coaching role with both the Under 12s and Under 14s.

Alex commented:  "I am thrilled to take on the challenge here at Newport County AFC, a Club which has been close to my heart since childhood.  My aim is to match the ambition that has been shown on the pitch by the players, manager, trust and the board."

Guy Price, COO of Newport County AFC, is excited to have Alex on board.  He added: “I am sure that Alex is going to make a huge difference to the Club when it comes to generating income from everything we have to offer.  Every penny that we raise through commercial income makes a difference to the Manager’s ability to recruit players and put the strongest group out on the pitch, both in the short and long term. The great news is that we have so many people and businesses that want to support the club. Alex will help with this, and he will bring energy, experience and an impressive track record to help us.”
