Blue Square Premier: Newport back after 25 years


Newport County will return to the Football League after a 25-year absence after two dramatic late goals gave them victory over Welsh rivals Wrexham at Wembley.

The Blue Square Bet Premier play-off final appeared destined for extra time until Christian Jolley (above) sent the ball past goalkeeper Chris Maxwell in the 86th minute.

Substitute Aaron O'Connor then added a second in the fourth minute of injury time. Newport, managed by former Tottenham defender Justin Edinburgh, will now play League Two football next season for the first time since 1988, having narrowly avoided relegation from the top flight of non-league football last season.
