Former Manager and Club legend Justin Edinburgh has today been posthumously inducted into the Newport County AFC Hall of Fame.

Revered by Newport supporters, Justin managed the Exiles from 2011-15, and famously clinched a return to the Football league in 2013 with a play-off victory over Wrexham at Wembley.

Marked by a minute of applause pre-match and a dedicated half-time ceremony, the induction was a welcome tribute for Justin’s family who were present. Speaking of their appreciation, a family spokesperson commented:

“The club was very close to Justin’s heart as it is ours and some of the best moments from his illustrious career were spent with County – the stand-out one being the promotion against Wrexham at Wembley in the Conference play-off final.

“We cannot thank everyone enough for the support shown to us as a family in the most tragic of times. We urge everyone to get behind the JE3 Foundation so that we can make a difference to people’s lives and continue Justin’s legacy for many years to come. A special thank you to all of the Board of Directors, staff, players and fans at Newport for their support and their warm welcome as always.”
