Dust Off Your Passports As Newcastle Confirm Friendly
A United team will travel to the International Stadium on 1st August as part of the pre-season arrangements. Only time will tell how strong a team Newcastle will send out as we await confirmation of a likely trip to South Africa as well as possible matches against Cardiff and Sporting Lisbon.
Always good to see Newcastle United interacting with local teams and especially Gateshead who are our nearest neighbours.
The ties between the two clubs were strengthened last season as James Tavernier, Joan Edmundsson, Phil Airey and Jak Alnwick all spent time across the river on loan.
It always seems a bit of a no-brainer to have friendly matches like this as everybody wins; no unnecessary travelling, a chance for more people to see Newcastle playing live and of course a few quid going into a local club.
