This summer's pre-season schedule for Peter Beardsley's under-21 side is taking shape

By Dan King - Newcastle United Digital Editor

A tournament in Germany and the now traditional friendly against Gateshead are included in Newcastle United under-21s' pre-season schedule for this summer.

Peter Beardsley's side travel to the International Stadium to take on the Heed - last season's Skrill Premier play-off runners-up - on Friday, 18th July with a 7.30pm kick-off.

Then they travel to south-west Germany to compete in the International U19 Tournament of SpVgg Oberndorf between Thursday, 24th July and Monday, 28th July - a few days before Alan Pardew's first team travel to Schalke.

The eight-team event will feature teams from five different countries, including Brazil and Spain, with each team playing five matches. Last year, Benfica, Manchester City and Borussia Mönchengladbach were among the sides invited.

And on Monday, 4th August Beardsley's boys will play against Barnsley's under-21 side at the Oakwell Academy. Kick-off is 1.30pm and members of the public are welcome to attend. Admission is free.

United also hope to confirm at least one additional second-string friendly, which will be announced on nufc.co.uk.

The full Newcastle United under-21s pre-season fixture list so far is as follows:

Fri 18 Jul 19:30 A Gateshead 
Thu 24 Jul - Mon 28 Jul International U19 Tournament of SpVgg Oberndorf
Mon 4 Aug 13.30 A Barnsley U21s
