Tribute to Justin Edinburgh

05/08/2019

Following the tragic news of the death of former Newport County AFC manager Justin Edinburgh at the age of just 49 in June, the Dragons - in partnership with Newport County - have created a framed permanent collection of the shirts, scarfs and other memorabilia left at the stadium as tributes.

All items placed by supporters at the stadium shortly after Justin passed away have been placed in a large frame on the Rodney Road Stand concourse wall.

Supporters will be able to see the tribute when Dragons face Scarlets in a double header at Rodney Parade on Saturday, August 14.

Mark Jones, Managing Director at Dragons Rugby said: "Justin Edinburgh was the first Newport County AFC manager at Rodney Parade and all the staff here shared a fantastic working relationship with him.

“We were all deeply saddened by the news of his untimely passing and the tributes left at the stadium gates reflected the high esteem he was held in by everyone.

“In recognition of this, we contacted Newport County with a view to the tributes at the gates being retained. From this contact, the tribute wall within the Rodney Road Stand was developed, and it is hoped it will serve as a permanent reminder of the part Justin played in the history of the football club."
