PLAYER NEWS | County's Number 9 Padraig Amond Triggers One-Year Contract Extension

3 January 2019

Newport County AFC are delighted to officially announce that Striker Padraig Amond has triggered a clause in his contract that sees him extend his deal with the Exiles until the end of the 2019/20 season.

The Striker has led from the front since arriving at the Exiles in August 2017, scoring 29 goals in 83 games to date in a glittering career so far in Amber.

Upon triggering the extension, Manager Michael Flynn said: "It is great for the football club that Podge has extended his deal. Not only is he one of the best Strikers in the League, but he is also a top professional and I am so glad he is one of ours for another season."

Amond started his career at his hometown club Shamrock Rovers and continued to play in Ireland before venturing to Portugal where he made 17 appearances for Pacos de Ferreira.

"Podge" then moved on to the Sky Bet League 2 for the first time playing over 80 times for Morecambe. Spells at Grimsby and Hartlepool followed before his eventual move to The Exiles in the summer of 2017. 

We look forward to seeing you make lots more appearances as an Exile, Padraig!
