First time: Bob Jack’s men beat County 5-1 on Saturday, September 11, 1920 in both clubs’ inaugural season in the EFL. Our goals were scored by Tommy Gallogley, George Sheffield (2), Will Dixon and Harry Raymond.

Last time: Derek Adams’ Argyle beat Newport 6-1 on Monday, April 17, 2017 to confirm our promotion back to League One. Matt Kennedy (2), Jake Jervis (2), Graham Carey and Ryan Taylor with our goals

Biggest win: The 6-1 victory in our last meeting.

Heaviest defeat: Bobby Moncur’s team lost 2-4 on Saturday, January 22, 1983. County’s Nigel Vaughan with an own goal and Jeff Cook scored for us. Future Pilgrim Tommy Tynan scored a brace for the Welshmen in the first 20 minutes of the match.

Most goals in a single game: Seven, in our 6-1 victory in April 2017 and in a 5-2 win for Bob Jack’s team on Saturday, October 6, 1928. Our scorers in the latter match were Ray Bowden, Fred Forbes, County’s Bob Pugh with an own goal and Jack Leslie (2).

Further interesting facts: We have only lost four times at home to Newport County in the EFL across 26 fixtures played over almost 100 years. Three of these four defeats came in a two-year spell in the early 1980s, from Friday, April 2, 1982 to Friday, April 20, 1984. Tommy Tynan played in all three matches, the first two for County and the third for us.

We have never drawn 2-2 at home to Newport in the EFL. However, in the Third Round of the 1983-4 FA Cup, the two clubs did play out a 2-2 draw at Home Park on Saturday, January 7. Argyle were trailing 1-2 in injury time at the end of the second half when Kevin Hodges was brought down in the box. Tommy Tynan, who was rumoured to be on the verge of returning to County, scored the resulting penalty. The Greens won the replay 1-0 and continued on to the Semi-Finals where we were beaten by Watford.

Another common result that we have never recorded at home to Newport is a 2-1 victory. They did, however, beat us 2-1 in April 1982. County’s 4-2 win in January, 1983 is the only time that they have scored more than twice against us in the EFL at Home Park.
