Essential Dates For All Newcastle Fans

7 years ago

Newcastle United have finally released details of their pre-season programme, with one other away fixture expected to be added in early August.

After the collapse yet again of a trip to South Africa, the itinerary definitely has the look of a cobbled together schedule.

In terms of positives at least there are domestic friendlies in Blackpool and Scotland that a decent number of supporters will be targeting for a day/night out.

Plus a few will also take advantage of combining friendlies with a bit of sun in Portugal.

The really important  factor is that the friendly schedule prepares the squad in a much better way than last summer and new signings (here’s hoping) are integrated as soon as possible.

Obviously bear in mind as well that SKY etc. haven’t had their wicked way with the early season fixtures as yet, so these are all subject to change.
