From the match programme:-
"We welcome our close friends Newport to the Athletic Club this evening and we meet them at a time when they are going through a purple patch which was only ended at Pontypridd last Saturday when they were reduced to 14 men. If we are to avenge our 55 points to 6 defeat at Rodney Parade we shall have to show more commitment than in our last game against Cheltenham."
"With our entry into the first division of leagues next season we are looking to improve our playing and administrative strength and possibly re-introduce our Athletic XV and help will be appreciated in the running of such a side if it materialises."
"It was a very successful trip to Enniscorthy where we came away with a worthy win by 20 points to 16, Gareth Snook got a cracking hatrick of tries with James Avon and Nick Wall being the other scorers. WELL DONE LADS."
"Many thanks go to Arthur Rowe and his company Arrow Builders for their sponsorship this evening."
"Don't forget our Good Friday fixture against Public School Wanderers Kick-off 3.30 p.m."
