Former Barry Town and Undy Athletic midfielder Michael Flynn masterminded Newport County’s League Two survival last weekend.
The 36 year-old who famously scored for Barry Town against Portugese giants FC Porto in a Champions League qualifier replaced Graham Westley in March with the club 11 points adrift at the bottom of League Two.

Before Flynn had taken the reigns at Newport County, he was first team manager at Undy Athletic after originally joining the Welsh League side as a player-coach.
Fortunately for Undy, Laurence Owen continued the work of Flynn at the club last year and guided the side to promotion to Division One.
The Newport born midfielder always spoke of his intentions of getting back into the professional game and Saturday’s scenes at Rodney Parade shows how Flynn went from managing in the Welsh League to managing at a professional level where he has guided his hometown team to safety.
