Newport manager turns down approach



Newport County manager Michael Flynn has turned down an approach from a fellow EFL club, believed to be League One side Lincoln City.

Newport currently sit in sixth place in the EFL League Two table, on 16 points after nine games and having only lost once so far.

Meanwhile, Lincoln City are also high flying in League One following the loss of club legend Danny Cowley to Huddersfield Town, having obtained 13 points from their first nine games and are only a point off from entering the coveted Playoff places.

Speaking to South Wales Argus, Flynn said: “There was an approach over the weekend, the club gave me permission to speak to them, I spoke to them, and I made the decision that I think I’ve got a job to do here and that was that.

“It’s always flattering but that doesn’t mean I’m courting [other clubs], it doesn’t mean my wife is out looking at houses.

“It’s always nice to be wanted by other people because it shows you’re doing a good job.”

The Verdict

For now, it appears a good decision from Flynn to have rejected the vacancy at Sincil Bank, with Danny Cowley’s boots being massive ones to fill after all he has done for the club in the past three years.

The Lincoln job is bound to come with pressure, pressure that Flynn may not be used to in his managerial career, and he is currently building something special at Newport.

Whether Flynn has made the right decision in the long run, only time will tell, but one thing’s for sure: Lincoln’s hunt for a new manager goes on.
