Sampson leaves the club in a comfortable position, sixth place in the table, having won five of their first nine games.

 

Last season, Newport finished seventh but were denied a chance to climb further up the table due to Covid-19.

 

A spokesperson for the club said: "Unfortunately, Andy feels he cannot continue to give the role the time and effort he rightly believes it requires, due to other commitments.

 

"Everyone at Newport would like to place on record their thanks to Andy for the work he has done over the past two and a half years in assembling the current squad of players.

 

"We wish Andy the very best and look forward to seeing him at some of our upcoming matches this season".

 

Assistant managers Stewart Shepherd and Steve Brougham will move up to take over the running of the first team squad as joint managers with immediate effect.
