The question in last week’s poll was, ‘What division were Newport County in when they last won 8 games on the trot?’
There were four possible answers and here is a breakdown of those answers and the percentage votes they got, with the winning answer in bold:
Conference Premier 33%
Conference South 33%
Southern League Premier 0%
Southern League Midland 33%
The last time Newport County won eight on the spin was in April-May 1994 under the guidance of Graham Rogers in the Southern League Midland Division. The run included the 5-0 thrashing of Leicester United, a 5-1 drubbing of Bilston Town and, perhaps of more interest to those following the fortunes of teams in the Conference Premier, an 8-3 victory against currently 2nd placed Forest Green Rovers. Another one of those at Rodney Parade would go down well this season!
