Newport County could turn to coach who left Leeds United last year

Newport County could turn to Cameron Toshack as they hunt for a new manager, according to a report by Dai Sport.

Newport County have made the decision to part company with Graham Coughlan ahead of the 2024/25 season. They now have a big decision to make as they prepare for another year in League Two and will be considering their options.

Toshack, 54, last worked at Leeds United as their assistant manager to Jesse Marsch whilst they were in the Premier League. He then left along with the American last year and has since been weighing up his next move in the game.

In this latest update regarding the Exiles’ search for a boss, Dai Sport claim they may consider the Welshman. They finished 18th in the table last term and were a comfortable 13 points above the drop zone, despite failing to win any of their final eight games.

Newport County need to get their next appointment right and Toshack could be a shrewd option for them.

He is a bright coach who may see the vacancy at Rodney Parade as a good opportunity to work closer to home and make a name for himself in the Football League.

Toschack worked with the Exiles’ chairman Huw Jenkins at Swansea City and the pair are now being linked with a reunion.

He holds a UEFA Pro License and a UEFA A Youth Licence.
