Newport at Home in the League Cup

The Capital Cup first round draw was made this morning, and League 2 Newport will cross the Severn Bridge to Berkshire in August.

The ties will be played the week commencing on August 11th, so expect the Mad Stad to be filled on Tuesday the 12th, barring any messing around for TV (which I doubt).

Newport finished 14th in League Two last season, there first back in the Football League since their 1989 reformation following bankruptcy.

Other fruity Round One ties include Brighton v Cheltenham, MK Dons v Wimbledon and Shrewsbury v Blackpool.

We'll have news of the Championship fixtures, which are announced tomorrow (18th June) at 9am.
