Captain Sean Newton scored a penalty for York in their first game (and looks like their last one this season, too) at their new LNER Community Stadium. Interesting that they have the same ground sponsor as us
Aaron Lewis stays on the bench all game again for Newport. Played just 96 minutes for them since joining them permanently a month ago. And this for a team struggling for results – one win in 13 before tonight's defeat of Walsall, for whom Max Melbourne started again (I wonder if the two old Imps had a chat and if so, what they said to each other?).
Ball lasted just 34 games, when previous boss McGreal was in charge for over 200. There certainly would be worse clubs to manage than Colchester. They have tended to give half-decent managers a bit of time, like McGreal, Phil Parkinson, Geraint Williams and John Ward.
