Two Newcastle United players could be making their club debuts today.

With only four weeks until the Premier League season kicks off, it is the first NUFC pre-season friendly on Saturday.

Both Nick Pope and Sven Botman could play their first games for the club, in this behind closed doors friendly at the Newcastle United training ground.

No time for kick-off has been made public and no doubt this will be a very relaxed affair, the NUFC squad only back in training a matter of a week, some Newcastle United players only a few days.

However, with so little time to prepare with the World Cup squeezing pre-season, things will quickly escalate when Newcastle head off this coming week to Austria for a training camp that includes friendlies against two German clubs (see important dates below).

Former Newcastle defender Mike Williamson brings his recently promoted Gateshead team that includes a host of former NUFC players, who have now been joined by young Magpies keeper Dan Langley, a loan signing for this upcoming season.
