It is important that Newport 'protect their assets'

The Newport County chairman says that securing Justin Edinburgh for another two years "is vital to keep the continuity in place" after their Wembley success in the FA Trophy.

Les Scadding said that it was important to keep the current team in place and 'protect their assets.'

We must protect our assets and in Justin & Jimmy we have two people who are determined to succeed and with success, interest from other parties is not uncommon.

I and the club feel we have done this and it’s another tick in the box for the future of this club.

– Les Scadding, Newport County Chairman
