Bittner Appointed Joint Caretaker Manager at Newport


Following the sacking of Newport County's manager Warren Feeney this morning, ex-Hereford United goalkeeper James Bittner, along with fellow Exiles coach Sean McCarthy, have assumed caretaker responsibilities at the club.

Bittner made 37 appearances for Hereford during the 2013-14 season, keeping 9 clean sheets. He then joined Newport on a short-term deal on the 28th July 2013 and has since had spells with Salisbury City and Plymouth Argyle. 

The 34-year old returned to Rodney Parade as a player/coach earlier this year.

A club statement said that they are 'intending to make an appointment as soon as possible and will make an announcement in due course.'
