Manager – Michael Flynn
Flynn was a much-travelled midfielder in his playing days, starring for the likes of Gillingham, Wigan, Bradford and Newport in three separate spells. He was appointed Newport caretaker-manager in March 2017 and brilliantly steered the club away from what seemed like certain relegation out of the Football League. He then masterminded famous FA Cup victories over Leicester and Leeds, as well as reaching the League Two Play-Off Final last season.

Pre-Match View
“Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday now. As long as we keep everybody fit, maybe it might be a good thing because we can get some momentum. You don’t want it to just flitter out and be a boring end to the season, of course we want to do well.” Michael Flynn
