As the sun was setting, so were our playoff hopes. Two home games against those in the mix, no goals and 6 shots on target (baffled it was that many!) over 200 odd minutes.
It could be worse. Roll on next season. #upthecounty#newportcounty 💛⚽🏴🐑
Pep. Trying to get Jesus to help them beat the county. Held them off for the first half but inevitable defeat. 2-1 would have been a far better reflection of the game. Better than Chelsea faired against them though. #newportcounty#facup#upthecounty
County's second goal against Middlesbrough to ensure progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup for an encounter with the might of Manchester City, met by pure pandemonium and ecstasy from the Amber Army! Another incredible chapter in the mercurial season of the Exiles! Let's do it all again on Saturday! 💛🖤⚽🏆 #cupset#upthecounty#mancity#ncafc#amberarmy

Great to be back in Newport on such a sunny day. Taking Alex to his first football game, and to watch #newportcounty come back from 2 nil down to beat Cambridge 4-2.
A run free weekend. Perhaps just one run before Cardiff half next weekend to bring the half marathon sequence to an end. Hoping then to actually find time to make it to club and get in some hills and non competitive runs.
FLYNN GALVANISES TEAM FOR CUP TIE MISMATCH:
Flynn admitted it will be a tough task for County who will without a doubt be the underdogs although he believes United won't enjoy coming to Rodney Parade. "They may look by far the better team on paper, but it's a good job we're not playing them on paper. We've got a home tie and they will not enjoy coming back down to reality to face us here at Rodney Parade." He then added how the crowd will be a big factor in the cup tie. "When they walk out and hear lit incredible fans they will know they're in for a game. I've got an amazing bunch of players and I have full confidence in each and every one of them, and I know the fans will push them until the very end" #eflcup🏆 #exilescm#upthecounty#newman#manchesterunited
