Pick up your copy of the special edition matchday programme that has been produced as a memento for Fraser and his young family tomorrow evening. It includes a feature-length interview with the former County star. 
When asked about the game and the Fun Day, Fraser said: "It should be a great day for everyone and a great match to look forward to against a very talented Chelsea side. Hopefully, we can get as many people down to the Newport Stadium and cheer on the boys ahead of the new season.
It's a fantastic idea from the Club to incorporate a family fun day along with the Chelsea game. The school holidays breaking up it’s perfect timing for families to come down and have fun before the match."
