NEWPORT have made their first signing of the summer.

The club announced the signature of defender Scott Sampson today (Tuesday). Sampson played a handful of games for the club towards he end of last season, but now have him full time.

Manager Steve Brougham said: "I think Scott is a great signing for us. Obviously he couldn't commit to playing for us last season, but with him playing hopefully every week for us this year and with his winning mentality we'll be a better team for it.

"Other clubs have been interested in him, but I'm just really happy that he’s agreed to sign for Newport. I think if we’re going to do well in the Sydenhams Wessex Premier League we’re going to need players like Scott playing for us."
