This weekend

On Saturday Newport travel to Bristol to resume our FA Vase journey when we play Cribbs FC at The Lawns.

The two sides met two years ago at St. George’s Park when the visitors ran out 2-0 winners with the goals coming in the final 20 minutes. Looking at both squads we see similar names re-appearing in this years fixture with half of Newports squad likely to be the same and several of the Cribbs squad being the same. The tie will be decided on the day, going to penalties if necessary.

There are a small number of seats left on the team coach which departs from St. George’s Park at 8.30am and gets back at 10.15pm. A small charge of £20 covers ferry and coach. These can be booked on 07734581648.

Meanwhile Newport Reserves travel to Bush Hill in Southampton for a Hampshire Combination match.

Newport A are at home to Seaview.
