S4C to show Newport v Grimsby play-off semi, live

24/04/2013

Newport will play for a place in the BlueSquare Premier play off final live on S4C when they take on Grimsby in the second leg of the semi-final (28 April).

Justin Edinburgh’s team will attempt to book their place in next week’s final where one team will win a place in the English football league. Newport is one of two teams from Wales hoping to gain promotion, with Wrexham challenging Kidderminster earlier on Sunday afternoon.

Join the Sgorio team live for the Newport-Grimsby game – the programme will begin at 4.00, and the game will kick off at 4.30.

S4C’s Sports' Commissioner Geraint Rowlands said:

"This game could lead to another massive weekend for football in Wales – and the big question is, will it be a battle between two teams from Wales to gain a place in England’s football league?

"S4C looks for opportunities to show football of all levels – the Welsh Premiership, the Welsh Cup and, following our successful broadcast of Wrexham’s FA Trophy victory, we’re pleased to be able to show Newport in this important fixture. There’ll be highlights of Wrexham against Kidderminster in Sgorio on Monday night (29 April) on S4C.

“We wish Newport and Wrexham every success as they try to reach the play-off finals."
