Hello from America!

Postby VikingNoah » December 29th, 2018, 10:16 am

Hello everyone!

I’ve only just recently discovered Newport AFC while digging around to learn more about football (soccer to us here in the US) in various European leagues. Newport Beach (about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego/Mexican border) is very near where I live, so it is exciting to find a club with such rich history that shares a name.

Hopefully I’ll make it over to see a game in the next couple of years. Otherwise, I’ll just have to cheer from afar.

All the Best,
~Noah

Do you think that President Trump would like to buy the club ?

Oh no, don’t tell me that the bids from Pierce Brosnan and Sir Tom Jones fell through!

Hi VikingNoah and welcome aboard to the County fan club. We need all the support we can get. I should let you know a bit about the club history.

Many years ago we had a bad experience by a North American citizen who 'bought', and I use that term lightly, our club and (with some other issues) played a major part in the demise of our club. We had our own wilderness years and it took some fantastic work by a lot of club officials and players over the years (30 in all) to get where we are at the moment.

We hear that the man who bought us eventually went to prison for an unrelated incident. It became apparent that he thought he was buying a much bigger UK club than us - Newcastle, instead of Newport and saw it as part of a get rich quick scheme. The club and the fans paid the price, he didn't.

If you want to know more, Google us and look at our history, it will enlighten you far better than I can. What I will say is this - if you want to become a fan, prepare for a very bumpy ride. Routine mediocrity, occasional disaster, sometime normality, punctuated by some rare moments of sheer bloody ecstasy. Don't say that you weren't warned!!
