All Newport County AFC players wore t-shirts with the Kidscape logo on before our 7-4 victory against Cheltenham on Tuesday evening as part of the Club showing awareness towards and supporting Anti Bullying Week.
The t-shirts clealry may have had some kind of positive effect as Michael Flynn's men ran riot at the Jonny Rocks Stadium, winning a chaotic match 7-4.

Whether it is verbal, physical, online or in-person, bullying has a significant impact on a child’s life well in to adulthood.
By making small, simple changes, we can break this cycle and create a safe environment for everyone.
Together, we can challenge bullying. Change starts with a conversation. It starts with checking in. It starts with work together.
This year the goal is to inform schools and settings, children and young people, parents and carers to know that it takes a collective responsibility to stop bullying.
NCAFC are excited to support this campaign as we want to create empowering, positive messages addressing the fact that when it comes to bullying: CHANGE STARTS WITH US!
