NEWPORT County AFC operational chairman Gavin Foxall says the board of directors will do everything they can to help manager Michael Flynn and the players secure promotion this season.

Flynn has already signed four players this month, bringing in Josh Sheehan on a permanent deal and Tyler Reid, Aaron Collins and Emmanuel Osadebe on loan.

The Exiles boss wants to further strengthen his squad before the end of the January transfer window and Foxall says the money is there.

County have made around £500,000 from their run to the FA Cup fourth round and a sell-on fee following former player Lee Evans’ move from Wolverhampton Wanderers to Sheffield United.

“The finances are an enormous help, there’s no doubt about it,” said Foxall.

“If you think of us as a club and what we turn over in a year, when you get a bit of a cup run you’ve got the prize money, the TV money, the added interest, and the commercial revenue goes up.

“And obviously being on BT Sport [for this Saturday’s FA Cup fourth round clash with Tottenham Hotspur] brings more of a global audience for us and gives the club great reach.

“The sell-on clause that we had in place for Lee Evans from a previous administration is great for the club as well,” added the chairman.

“It all helps with the close season, and with the stuff that Flynny wants to do on the field as well so long may it continue.

“We’ve obviously got a budget and we’ve always said to him that we will support him in the decisions that he wants to make on the field.

“And if you think of the position we’re in, we’ve got a great opportunity.

“With the spirit amongst the players, they are riding high and they honestly believe that we can get promoted.

“That’s fantastic and we’re right behind them 100 per cent.”

Flynn has also talked a lot about improving the club’s training facilities and Foxall confirmed that he has discussed the matter with the manager.

“I’ve spoken to Michael to see what he means by it because we’ve got first-class facilities at the Newport International Sports Village through Newport Live,” he said.

“We’ve got the velodrome, Spytty itself and the tennis centre.

“They’ve got everything that they could need within walking distance so it’s great.

“Obviously we had the fire down there recently and what Michael really means is the training base itself so I’m sure that we’ll be having those conversations.

“But the whole focus right now is on the FA cup tie.”
