Newport County have signed goalkeeper Conor Thompson.

The 18-year-old, who was previously with Torquay United, will provide back up to Jamie Stephens who is set to become the Exiles' number one goalkeeper in the absence of Lenny Pidgeley.

Pidgeley suffered ankle ligament damage in their 0-0 draw with Southend United, meaning former Liverpool shotstopper Stephens will step into the breach this weekend for the next two to four weeks.
