After two (very successful) league matches on the road, we are back at Rodney Parade this Saturday in our Sky Bet League Two Match vs Yeovil Town.
Tomorrow’s clash is shaping up to be a very interesting with both Yeovil Town and Newport County AFC boasting unbeaten records since opening day. International call-ups meant the Glover’s most recent match was postponed but four clean sheets in a row mean that, even despite playing fewer games than the rest of the pack, they are just five points off the front-runners Lincoln City and - of course - Newport County AFC.
If the prospect of watching a clash between two of the league’s in-form teams doesn’t get your mouth watering, then here’s everything else that’s taking place at Rodney Parade this Saturday….
MARROW FOR MARLEY SWABBING STATIONS
You will almost certainly have seen the Marrow for Marley Campaign which is gaining momentum everyday around Newport. The campaign is working to encouraging as many people to become stem cell, bone marrow donors in aid of finding a match for six-year-old Marley.
It will take just five minutes to sign up and find out if you can save someone’s life. Click here to find out more about Marrow for Marley.
Swab Station Times: Midday-3pm & 5pm–6pm
Thank you to Yeovil Town and Gary Warren for supporting Marrow for Marley:
