Position: Defender

Scott Sampson

Strong defender, previous winner of the Wessex Premier League with Blackfield and Langley. Likes to get forward and gets his fair share of goals.

Jake Younie

Strong defender who can also play in midfield. Newport FC supporters player of the season in 2014. Has previously played for Brading Town and East Cowes Vics.

Alex Harmer

Young Defender who made his breakthrough into the first team squad in 2016/17. One for the future.

Martin McDonough

Newport’s captain. Deceptively powerful defender who made his first team debut for the Port in the Southern League age 16. Spent the 2009/10 season at Cowes Sports where he was a regular in what was a tough season. Was quickly snapped-up by the Port again and with several years Wessex experience behind him has proved a mainstay in the Port’s defence ever since.

Spike Pearce

A real find last season when he was plucked from Island League football to become a regular starter in the first team. Strong in the centre of defence.
