Newport County's proud tradition of FA Cup shock delivers continues after the League Two club dumped Middlesborough out of the FA Cup in their fourth-round replay tonight.
Crucial to the result was Carlow man Padraig Amond. Robbie Willmott had given the club the lead just after half-time before Amond finished a clever training ground corner move. A sweeping ball across the box sat up for the striker who did not hesitate in lashing the ball into the roof of the net.
