Blackpool Pre-Season Friendly For Newcastle

8 years ago

With rumours still unconfirmed that Newcastle United will at last visit South Africa for a pre-season tournament following last year’s cancellation, one summer fixture does definitely look on the cards.

The Blackpool Chairman, Karl Oyston, has stated;

“We’ll have a friendly against Newcastle and we are working towards it, there’s no desperate panic as everything is on schedule.”

The announcement was linked to questions regarding work going on with the pitch at Bloomfield Road.

There is no date revealed yet but the Championship kicks off on Saturday 3rd August so sometime in July looks nailed on.

There will be more than a few Newcastle fans with a smile on their face because one of the few saving graces of dropping into the Championship would have been the opportunity for a day out/stopover in the cultural capital of the north.

It may not have escaped your notice either that Blackpool and United now share the same shirt sponsor, whether that is coincidence is unlikely and maybe we could end up with the Wonga Cup to go in our trophy cabinet…
