Footballer Fraser Franks was forced to retire after it was discovered that he’s got a heart issue.
The gamer spent a week in hospital because of an irregular heartbeat and couldn’t teach because of this.
Franks has made 34 appearances for the Exiles this season.

He also played AFC Wimbledon, Welling United, Luton Town and Stevenage.
At a statement Newport said they are doing everything to support Franks and his family and say there’ll likely be further announcements in the coming weeks.
