If they were a biscuit they would be...a rich tea. Previously lacking flavour, Newport narrowly missed out on the play-offs last term. However, after being dipped in an English classic, both rich teas and Newport County can improve. The biscuit's flavour is enhanced when dipped in tea, whilst Newport may benefit from former England captain Terry Butcher taking charge.
