Vics v Newport Tonight

Somebody said there was a football match on in East Cowes tonight and it was a sell out.

Almost right, there is a game on and there are only 40 tickets left for sale on the gate. The capacity is 300, the doors are locked at that point.

East Cowes Vics v Newport is an unusual game to be an all ticket match, but in these circumstances we live in, nothing seems to surprise any more.

Andy Sampson almost has a full squad to choose from with only Jared Cousins the injury doubt.

All supporters attending are advised to download the Covid 19 Test and Trace app to avoid queues at the turnstiles. Simply scan the QR code and you should be able to enter – far easier than trying to remember your own phone number.

Kick off is at 7.45 but you are advised to attend FAR earlier to ensure you get in for kick off and dont miss any early goals.

Parking is at a premium and once you are past the roundabout at Barton Manor don’t drive past any parking space – you will regret it if you do.

First chance for Newport fans to see the new Vics floodlights which are reported to be very bright.

Please bring a mask which is essential for entering the clubhouse and seeing as all the toilets are in there it could save some embarassment.
