Pidgeley grateful for support

Lenny Pidgeley: Happy to be back

Newport goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley has thanked the club's fans for helping him through his personal problems.

The Exiles number one returned to the team on Saturday for the first time since last season's Wembley play-off final and kept a clean sheet as County beat Bristol Rovers 1-0.

"It is great to be back," he told the South Wales Argus. "It's been a tough time for me over the summer, from being on a high after Wembley to being down in the dumps and feeling quite poorly for a couple of months.

"I don't want to go into too much detail really. It's personal stuff. I haven't been feeling too well but the club has dealt with it well.

"The supporters have been great with me. They were singing my name in the warm-up at Northampton last week and I've been getting a lot of supportive tweets."
