FA Vase weekend

Newport make a welcome return to the FA Vase tomorrow as they take on Cribbs FC from the Toolstation Western League. Cribbs are based just off the M5 on the outskirts of Bristol.

Not much is known of the Port’s opponents although the Western League is known to be a strong league comparable to the Sydenhams Wessex Premier. Cribbs are currently 12th in the league and won last Saturday 5-1 at home to Wellington.

Cribbs are bringing a coach for players and supporters so a good attendance is expected. The match will be decided on the day, be it after 90 minutes, extra time or penalties.

The bar will be open from 12 noon showing the BT live matches 1230 kick off for Bournemouth v Manchester United and 5.30 for Arsenal v Liverpool.

Admission is £6 and £3 for concessions.
