Newport County
18.10.2018 Reading FC v Newport County AFC
Newport made the long journey to take on Reading with both teams sitting at the top end of the league table. The first half started off reasonably even with very few clear cut chances created. After 20 minutes County began to dominate proceedings and took the lead when Ben Williams delivered a pin point cross from the right hand side for Luke Edgell to volley into the roof of the net.
The second period started quite scrappy in which the bobbly pitch played a big factor. On 56 minutes a nicely waited pass from Ivan Mohammed found Joseph Baston who slotted the ball into the bottom left corner to double Newport’s lead. 10 minutes later it was 3-0 when Jake Clark played a quick combination with Josh Williams to calmly strike the ball past the outstretched goalkeeper. County soon added another when Jacob Perella worked extremely hard to regain possession of the ball and had the composure to find Luke Edgell who finished very well into the top corner to double his tally. Reading late on had a few half chances to get a goal back but never really made goalkeeper Brandon Powell work. In injury time Max Holley clipped a accurate ball into the box for Ivan Mohammed to head in to seal a 5-0 win.
Best wishes to Jermaine and his players for the rest of the season. We look forward to the return fixture at Llanwern High School.

14.06.2017 Invictus Games Toronto 2017

Veteran Paul Harding joined the Army in 1976 and served for 12 years, rising to the rank of Sergeant. He is looking to compete in a mammoth six events at the 2017 Invictus Games: wheelchair basketball, wheelchair tennis, rowing, sitting volleyball, swimming and golf. Paul, who suffers psychologically as a result of his service, said: “Sport has given me a reason to engage with people again. I have spent so long isolated from everybody, but I am looking forward to Invictus and being around like-minded people again.” Paul has now joined the Cardiff Met Archers wheelchair basketball team, and is training hard with the Help for Heroes sports recovery team in South Wales, where he lives.  “Sport has also given me the opportunity to tell other veterans the benefits of engaging in sport. Help for Heroes is giving me excellent support, and I would like to be able to compete in more competitions to show being injured in service is not the end of your life”.  Paul works here at Llanwern High School with our Cadets.  We are so proud of Paul for undertaking this fantastic opportunity and wish him all the very best!
