JOE JOINS EX­ILES AT LONG LAST

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

NEW­PORT man­ager Justin Ed­in­burgh ad­mit­ted his re­lief to have fi­nally got his man after bring­ing in striker Joe Pigott on loan from Charl­ton.

The Ex­iles chief wanted to sign the 20-year-old last sea­son but Pigott in­stead chose to join Gilling­ham where he scored once in four ap­pear­ances.

But, with Rene Howe hav­ing rup­tured a thigh mus­cle in train­ing, Ed­in­burgh swooped in to boost his front line.

“Joe is an ex­cit­ing prospect,” he said. “He will add to this area of the team.”
