Two weeks after guiding Newport County to a more than admirable 14th place finish in the Sky Bet League Two, Justin Edinburgh has been busy finalizing the renewals of seven first team players, whose combined appearances this season reached 150.
First on the list would undoubtedly of been the name of Chris Zebroski, who found the back of the net no less than 13 times, so it came as no surprise to see this step being made by Edinburgh to secure a source of firepower for next season. Other noticeable names include the former Chelsea and Milwall man, Lenny Pidgeley who cemented his case for the number one jersey this season.
The Exiles revealed that they have also had contract offers made to: Ismail Yakubu, Max Porter, Andy Sandell, Lee Minshull and Danny Crow accepted, meaning that the core of the team that achieved them the 14th place finish in League two are staying put.
They also reported that they have begun negotiations with influential defender Byron Anthony, who missed a large part of the season when he suffered a broken leg last August.
