From the match programme:-
"We are pleased and proud to welcome Newport to our Ground today. The renowned "Black and Amber" are world famous, and rightly so, when you consider their achievements over the last 50 years or more."
"Newport have been badly hit by injuries this season, but they can still field a side that will test the best of opposition."
"In the Newport team today are three former Newbridge players - Let. Jones (their Capt) a grand forward; Gerry Gibbons - what memorable games has Gerry played on this ground ! and Doug. Dando - whom we consider to be the finest lock-forward in Wales. Good Luck to all three of them!"
"The Newbridge R.F.C. are hoping that on the next occasion they entertain Newport their Grand Stand will be erected, to give their patrons and the visitors the amenities which are necessary in first-class football."
