By finishing bottom of Division 4 in 1987/88 Newport County suffered automatic relegation from the Football League with GM Vauxhall Conference champions Lincoln City taking their place (1987/88 Conference table). Unfortunately Newport didn't survive a full season in non-league football, financial problems forcing them to drop out of the Vauxhall Conference after declaring bankruptcy on February 27th 1989 (results). Newport County were reformed and regained their League place by winning through the Conference play-offs in 2012/13 - 2012/13 Conference table.
