Beadle bags double deal
Nationwide South club Newport County have secured the loan signing of Ashan Holgate from Swindon Town and have also brought in a goalkeeper.
Manager Peter Beadle told the club's offfical website: "I am delighted to have Ashan at the club after attempting to sign him last season.
"Ashan is a young man with a bright future who is looking forward to the challenge with Newport County and I am sure will bring a new dimension to the team."
Beadle has also re-signed goalkeeper Kieron Blackburn after he returned from the United States to provide cover for Mark Ovendale, who is occupying the number one jersey due to first-choice Tony Pennock's unexpected injury.
Third-choice stopper Jacob Giles has been loaned out to Gloucester City for a month, while Ashley Williams moves to British Gas Business Southern League Premier Division outfit Yate Town for the same amount of time.
Beadle added: "I must stress that both of these are loan deals and both Ashley and Jacob remain an important part of the County set up."
