Photos on the Newcastle web-site today as the Newcastle players arrives for the first day of preseason training this morning.
Players we haven’t seen for some time like Dutch Internationals Tim Krul and Siem de Jong were among the players reporting for the new season.
Rafa Benitez will have to place some of the 35 first team players with Peter Beardsley’s U23 squad, since there are too many first team players to train with the first team squad – which is usually around 25 in number.

One of our readers Alex Wannop is completing in the GN 10K next Sunday and also the GN Run to collect funds for Tiny Lives, because the Trust provided lifesaving care for his son Isaac, when he was born by C-section and in some distress.
The Tiny Lives Trust funds the Special Care Baby Unit at the RVI where Alex’s son Isaac spent the first few weeks of his life.
Alex is appreciative of the work the great doctors and nurses did to save his son’s life and that’s why he’s raising money.
Please support this very worthwhile charity on Alex’s Just Giving page where there are pictures of his son Isaac – thanks.
