Bristol Rovers see a few return in friendly against Newport County

Comments (0)

A Bristol Rovers development team went down 2-0 in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Newport County yesterday.

Joe Parker gave a strong-looking Newport side a 16th-minute lead by producing a perfectly executed half-volley from the edge of the penalty area.

The advantage was doubled less than three minutes later when Aaron O'Connor converted a header from close range.

Skipper Mark McChrystal was not considered fit enough to make a return to action following a recent ankle injury, but first-team squad players Ryan Brunt, Stuart Sinclair and Daniel Leadbitter all featured.

Salisbury City have been given two weeks to resolve their financial difficulties and avoid being wound up.

The club were ordered on Monday to find £14,000 to settle debts with Revenue & Customs.

The ongoing dispute over the ownership of the Whites is due to be heard in the High Court tomorrow.

Salisbury have been plagued by off-field issues throughout the summer and are not currently a member of any division of non-league.

Salisbury's application to join the Wessex League was rejected last week.
