Newport County have signed striker Conor Washington from St Ives Town, who play in the ninth tier of English football.

Washington, 20, scored 24 goals in 30 appearances last season as St Ives finished third in the United Counties League Premier Division.

Justin Edinburgh's side are currently second in the Blue Square Bet Premier, scoring 24 goals in 12 games.

"I'm delighted that the chairman has backed me again and enabled us to bring in Conor, who has a superb goalscoring record," Edinburgh said.
