Often forgotten,but Newport won Division 3 South in 1938/39 so started 46/47 in the 2nd Division.
You would never think that ground held 2nd tier football !
How did Newport not get anything from that game !Surprised at that comment Olds....would have thought you'd have known that it even hosted a European Quarter Final as well (during our lifetimes!)
