The pre-season for Newcastle has finally been settled, and while playing in the four-team Schalke 04 Cup in early August, Newcastle will play Malaga on Saturday, August 2nd, followed the next day by playing host German club Schalke 04, so we will not be playing against West Ham, who are also in the tournament.

Cheer up Lee – you did well
We’ve said it before, that Managing Director Lee Charnley has done a very good job in getting all eight pre-season games arranged so early, and that will help the fans arrange travel for the games, for those who want to attend them.
