From the match programme:-
"Most popular English visitors, Newport entertain Blackheath at Rodney Parade this afternoon. The famous London Club have not too imposing a record this season, but a very good victory at Cambridge last Saturday will give them confidence to reverse the 11 - 5 defeat Newport inflicted on them at the Rectory Field early in the season - a victory by no means easily earned, for Newport, let it be said."
"With the season proceeding apace, Newport have run into trouble again in regard to injuries. Ken Spray has been advised to rest from football, and Newport are not likely to have the services of this fine player again this season. Illness, too, is likely to keep Tom Sterry out of the pack for several weeks. G. Gibbon has influenza, and with 'Rob' Hughes not available to-day, B. Rowlands, the young Machen full-back will play his second game of the season for Newport. Strangely enough it was against Blackheath in London that he was called upon for his first test in senior football, and from this he emerged with great credit. At the time of going to press, the composition of the Newport three-quarters to-day is uncertain. The only change in the forwards selected is to bring in ]im Partridge from the United to take the place of T. Sterry. It is good news that Doug. Dando is fit again, and he has been selected to have a run out with the United side to-day."
"Applications are invited from Club members for the limited number of Stand Tickets allocated to the Club for the Wales v. France International at Cardiff, on Saturday, March 25th. A ballot will be necessary, and all applications must be in the hands of the Football Hon. Sec., Rodney Parade, by Monday, March 6th. A further announcement will be made regarding the sale of Field Tickets."
"Frank Owen, Editor of the "Daily Mail," and an erstwhile Newport player for a short period, will be in the Chair at the Second Annual Re-Union Dinner of the old Newport Thirds XV., which will be be heId at the Tredegar Arms Hotel on Saturday, March 4th. So great is the interest in this event that Mr. Albert Elms, organising with his usual zest and efficiency reports that all Tickets are sold."
"Next Saturday Newport play Cardiff at home in the third meeting of the season between the two great rivals, and keen will be the interest to witness whether the sequence of Cardiff's successes in the series can be halted. British Movietone News will be filming this game."
