The 1989–90 season was the first season played by the reformed side since Newport County were expelled from the Football Conference mid-way through the 1988–89 season.

Due to the club being unable to secure the lease on Somerton Park the season was spent ground sharing at Moreton-in-Marsh. Newport finished the season as cup winners and league champions of the Hellenic League Premier Division with promotion to the Southern League.
