MID­FIELDER Mark Byrne has vowed to re­pay New­port in goals, after agree­ing a con­tract ex­ten­sion.

The 26-year-old turned down the chance to stay with Con­fer­ence lead­ers Bar­net in the sum­mer, in­stead opt­ing to pen a six-month deal to re­turn to league foot­ball with the Ex­iles.

Such has been his form, man­ager Justin Ed­in­burgh of­fered Byrne a fresh 18month con­tract this week.

Byrne said: “There is a lot of com­pe­ti­tion and Yan Klukowski, in par­tic­u­lar, has shown his qual­ity.

“He’s a goalscorer and that is the one thing I want to im­prove. I want to add more goals to my game and help us stay in the top seven.”
