Postponed Southend United

Newport County AFC are disappointed that today's Sky Bet League Two fixture against Southend United has been called off due to a frozen pitch.

Despite the best efforts of the groundstaff, who have worked tirelessly and deployed frost covers ahead of the fixture, the referee Paul Howard has deemed that certain areas of the pitch are not safe to play on.

The club are disappointed by the decision but the health and safety of players is of paramount importance.

Newport County AFC would like to thank the groudstaff for their continued efforts, and details for a rearranged fixture will be announced in due course.
