NEWPORT County AFC goalkeeper Joe Day celebrated his 200th appearance for the club in style with a 1-0 win at Tranmere Rovers on Saturday and he’s convinced that there will be many more great days ahead for him and the club.
The three points at Prenton Park ensured that County remain in third place in the League Two table after nine games and it was the perfect response to last week’s shock 6-0 home defeat to Yeovil Town.
Day’s Exiles debut also resulted in a 1-0 win at Portsmouth back in August 2014 and he’s experienced plenty of highs and lows since then but he believes the club is very much on the up under manager Michael Flynn.

Fraser Franks’ goal in the fifth minute was enough to seal a third successive away win in League Two and keep County third in the table.
