Newcastle United Official Announcement – St James Park friendly tickets go on sale
Newcastle v Norwich concludes the pre-season friendlies and tickets have now gone on sale.
After defeat to sixth tier York and a narrow win over League One Doncaster, Newcastle were fortunate to escape with a late equaliser and 1-1 draw at another League One club, Rotherham, last night.
A trio of League One opponents concludes with Burton away on Friday night, before eight days later at 2pm on Saturday 7 August, it is Newcastle v Norwich in the only home friendly scheduled.
Playing against Premier League opposition, albeit a team expected to be one of NUFC’s relegation rivals, Steve Bruce and his players will get the most difficult pre-season test of the five matches to prepare them for the season.
The ticket prices are £10 adults and £5 concessions and if you are going to go, then make sure you get them before the day of the match, otherwise you will be paying Mike Ashley twice the price for your ticket, as they rise to £20 and £10.
After a poor performance that ended with Jeff Hendrick as the main striker, Steve Bruce gave tickets for the Newcastle v Norwich match, arguably the worst ever sales pitch.
Asked whether Newcastle United had made any progress in the transfer market, Steve Bruce replying:
“I wish I could say ‘yes’…but we are still bashing away and I’ll try to continue to do that.”
Today is day 50 of the transfer window without a single signing made, whilst it is only 18 days until the season kicks off against West Ham.
The failure to even try and sign any players doesn’t exactly match up with Steve Bruce boasts at the end of last season, when he said he would be ‘bashing’ down Mike Ashley’s door demanding transfer action, with claims of targeting the signing of three or four quality players.
