NEWPORT County AFC have secured deals for keeper Joe Day, striker Marlon Jackson, defenders David Pipe and Mark O’Brien and the returning Robbie Willmott.

Day, O'Brien and Willmott have signed two-year deals, while Jackson and Pipe have both penned one-year contracts.

The versatile Willmott, a fans’ favourite during his first stint with the Exiles, rejoins the club after two years away having enjoyed a successful 2016-2017 campaign with Chelmsford City.

Exiles boss Michael Flynn said: "I’m delighted that these lads have signed. It gives us an early start to where we want to get to in time for when we return for pre-season.

"They’re all hungry to do well for the football club and they all live close.

"That’s a big thing for us because we need them to feel the passion of the fans and the buzz around the city in order for them to give their all for the football club."
