Newport County – The Top Of The Table Form Of The Foe

Having raided Luton Town twice for Aaron O’Connor & Danny Crow and Bradford City for Michael Flynn, Newport County AFC top the table with the Euromillions funds still to come next week.  O’Connor has already bagged three with Lincoln striker Jefferson Louis on two plus an assist.  New boys Crow and Thompson have already set up two apeice with the  Exiles averaging four a game so far with Mansfield Town amongst their scalps.  Could their return from the dead continue with yet another promotion? This is a test indeed for the Imps.

Exciting times for the Exiles with Justin Edinburgh bringing in: strikers  Aaron O’Connor & Danny Crow (both Luton Town) & Jefferson Louis (Lincoln); midfielders Michael Flynn (Bradford City),  Ben Swallow (York City) and Jake Thompson (Forest Green Rovers); central defender Tony James (Burton);  plus a keeper, make that two due to injury,  with Alan Julian and now Lenny Pidgeley signing one year deals.  But wait there is more to come, on August 20th , as a board meeting ratifies a Euromillions winner plus four new businessmen to fund the new era fit for the new HQ at Rodney Parade

Keeper corner

Lenny Pidgeley

Signed from Exeter this summer he is actually the number two keeper but Alan Julian is crocked.  Lenny is a great shot stopper although not the most vocal or commanding of keepers. Kicking is average.
