The last Top Class Cricket to be played in Newport was the Glamorgan v Yorkshire, Refuge Assurance, 
40 over Sunday League Match on June 24th, 1990. Unfortunately, the match held at Rodney Parade,
was abandoned without a ball being bowled, due to bad weather and proved to be the last occasion
Glamorgan visited Newport. The Rodney Parade ground was sold by Newport Athletic Club to build
a school on the site.
