NEW­PORT GROUND BOOST

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

NEW­PORT County have been re­as­sured they will be taken into ac­count if Rod­ney Parade changes hands.

On May 9, the share­hold­ers of New­port RFC, who own Rod­ney Parade, will vote on whether to ac­cept the Welsh Rugby Union’s £3.75mil­lion takeover pro­posal.

But in 2013 the Ex­iles agreed a ten-year lease to use the sta­dium af­ter gain­ing pro­mo­tion to the EFL.

New­port RFC chair­man Will God­frey says both New­port County and New­port Squash Club – also based at Rod­ney Parade – are pro­tected un­der their cur­rent agree­ments.

“The WRU have been fully privy to what has been in­volved in those agree­ments,” he said. “They will con­tinue to stand.”
