Newport City Start the New Season with a Home Game
WE OPEN our 2019-20120 Welsh League Division Two campaign on Saturday, August 10 with a visit from newly-promoted Ynyshir Albion.
The Rhondda Valley-based club earned promotion by winning last season’s South Wales Alliance League title and they are to be thoroughly congratulated because they were playing in the seventh tier of Welsh domestic football not so very long ago.
However three promotions in four seasons now has them playing at this level for the first time in their 27-year-old history.
Following that, we entertain city-neighbours Albion Rovers on Saturday, August 17 (2.30pm) before a mid-week trip to Trethomas Bluebirds at their Centre for Sporting Excellence base at Ystrad Mynach (CF82 7EP) – kick off 7.15pm.
We end the month with an away Welsh League Cup round-one tie at divisional-rivals Chepstow Town (2.00pm).
