Newport welcomed back several old players in a strong Brading side for a pre-season friendly.
There are still a few Newport players unavailable as well as Manager Andy Sampson so Stuart Shepherd took over in the dugout.
The match was evenly contested, Newport taking the lead late in the first half with a Joe Craig header from a Kyle Drew cross.
HT: Newport 1-0 Brading
Both teams made a number of substitutions during the half and both teams also hit the woodwork. A decent Brading effort hit the crossbar and a strange Newport shot hit one post, span across the goalmouth before spinning past the other post for a goal kick.
Another useful workout for both sides with a youthful Newport side starting to look more fluent and growing in confidence.
