Good luck message to Newport County AFC
Posted on Friday 4th January 2019
Newport City Council, in partnership with Newport County AFC, have put up good luck messages at sites around the city in readiness for the club's big match against Premier side Leiceister City this weekend.
The city's football club will take on Leicester in the match to be played at Rodney Parade on Sunday, 6 January.
Councillor Debbie Wilcox, Leader of Newport City Council, said: "This is another excellent opportunity to show that the city can host big events. We have a growing reputation for staging major sporting events.
"I'm sure the team will put on a great performance against Leiceister City, another Premiership side, following the Spurs visit last season. I wish them well for their big FA Cup match."
Councillor Wilcox will be attending the match alongside lifelong NCFC supporters including Councillors Ray Truman, John Guy, David Mayor and Jane Mudd.
The good luck messages can now be seen on lamp standards along High Street, Commercial Street, Llanarth Street and Queensway.
Two small banners are on the railings near the Information Station, one large banner is outside the Riverfront Theatre and two large banners are either side of the City Footbridge with other banners to be displayed inside the ground.
