HONORARY president David Hando is calling on Newport County AFC fans to share their memories of the club's reformation in 1989, which will be included in a book to celebrate the new club's first 30 years.

Now that Newport County AFC's superb season is approaching its dramatic conclusion, I would ask their splendid supporters to cast their minds back thirty years to 1989," said Hando.

"I am writing a book about the formation of Newport AFC, now Newport County AFC, a club founded, financed and run by ordinary fans, and I would like some of the original 400 fans to share their memories of those heady days, from the sad demise of Newport County, the birth of Newport AFC, the exile to Moreton-in-Marsh, our first promotion and our return to Somerton Park.

"If fans email me their memories and photographs to david.hando@hotmail.com, I will include as many as possible."
