Happy New Year 2017 – The Port v The Bash

Newport IW Football Club wish you all a very happy new year.

The Port begin their 2017 campaign when they face Bashley FC on Tuesday 3rd January at St George’s Park for a 7:30pm kick off.

As Newport look to put their loss against Cowes Sports to one side Bashley will be looking to take advantage of The Ports defeat having drawn to Bournemouth on the 27th Dec.

Bashley sit 12th in the league whilst Newport remain in 10th. The Port are hoping not to have a repeat of their away encounter with Bashley at the beginning of the season having come from behind after the first half to lead 2:1 then conceding two late goals to lose 3:2.

Andy Sampson will be without injured captain Martin McDonough, Spike Pierce and Scott Sampson. Liam Triggs is also unavailable for Tuesdays evening fixture.

Young talent Lewis Wright will come into the squad looking to make his second appearance for the 1st team this season along with new signings Josh Maloney and Ryan Thomas.

The clubhouse bar will be open from 6:30pm for happy hour prior to kick off at 7:30pm.

Come and support The Port as they look to begin the second half of the season with a victory and a chance to push into the top 10 in the Wessex League Premier Division.
