We regret to advise members that Alan Padmore recently passed away. Alan was a long time member of Newport and was involved with the club when they played in their first ever European tournament in Southgate in the mid-70’s. He also won 5 caps for Wales as well as playing for the ‘Home’ Welsh and our thoughts go out to his family and friends. A service will be held at Gwent Crematorium, Treherbert Road, Croesyceiliog, Cwmbran NP44 2BZ at 12:00 on Monday 31st July, followed by a memorial service at Bethesda Church, 108 Cefn Road, Rogerstone, Newport NP10 9EX at 13:00. Family flowers only but donations in lieu to charity on the day.
