Wessex League returns this week- Reserve team withdraw from league

Wessex League football returns this week as Newport are at home to Hythe & Dibden on Tuesday night. The new management team of Stewart Shepherd and Steve Brougham will be in charge as they look to keep the momentum going in what has been a stop start season.

After the four week lockdown, everyone should be keen to get back to football. The kick off at Beatrice Avenue is 7.45pm, full Track and Trace procedures will be in place. If you have the T&T app then please scan the QR codes at the entrance, otherwise you will need to supply full contact details.

The bar at East Cowes Vics will be open for table service only.

Sadly the club have been forced to withdraw the Reserve team from the Hampshire Combination and Development League. We have had trouble in recent matches in raising a side to travel to the mainland and the team management of Stuart Simmonds, Marc Sheerin and Graham Snow decided enough was enough and stood down. The club decided that in the current circumstances it was best to withdraw from the competition and re-evaluate our position on Reserve team football. Everone at Newport would like to thank Stuart Marc and Graham for their work with the Reserves over the last two seasons and their time with the Youth section before that.
