Newcastle United begin their pre-season campaign on Tuesday night away at Motherwell (7pm kick-off).
And manager Alan Pardew has named a strong starting line-up to take on last season's Scottish Premier League runners-up, which includes four full internationals - Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Moussa Sissoko, Vurnon Anita and Haris Vuckic.
There is also a sprinkling of youth within the matchday squad, as Pardew and his coaching staff look to give players valuable game time in their first friendly fixture of the summer.
Motherwell (4-4-2): Lee Hollis; Adam Cummins, Simon Ramsden, Shaun Hutchinson, Stevie Hammell; Stuart Carswell, Paul Lawson, Keith Lasley, Iain Vigurs; Bob McHugh, Trialist
Substitutes: Gunnar Nielsen, Euan Murray, Fraser Kerr, Zaine Francis-Angol, Lee Erwin, James McFadden, Craig Moore
Referee: Willie Collum
