Gilbey Gets To Wembley

29 April 2013

Midfielder helps Newport to play-off win.

It wasn't just the U's first team that were celebrating this weekend in a positive few days for the club.

Midfielder Alex Gilbey has enjoyed a great loan spell at Newport County in recent weeks, first helping them to confirm a spot in the play-offs and then playing a big part in the two games against Grimsby Town.

After 85 minutes in the first leg, which Newport won 1-0 at Grimsby, Alex played the full ninety in the return leg and set up County's goal to ensure a 2-0 aggregate win and a place at Wembley.

That match - against fellow Welsh side Wrexham - takes place on this Sunday and will give Alex the chance to play at the national stadium.
