Newport County AFC have today confirmed the list of players retained or released following curtailment of 2019-20 season.
We are not making any offers to our out-of-contract first team squad members due to the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19, specifically the economic impact on the club, uncertainty of when we will return to playing football in front of crowds and not knowing when season 2020-21 will commence.
We thank all the players leaving the club this summer for their efforts while with the Exiles and wish them well for the future.
