Newcastle United will face a trip to Doncaster Rovers next month for a pre-season friendly.
The Magpies travel to the Keepmoat Stadium on Wednesday, 20th July for a 7.45pm kick-off, where they take on a Rovers side who will ply their trade in League Two next season following relegation.
Doncaster are managed by Darren Ferguson and their long-serving midfielder James Coppinger began his career at Newcastle, making one appearance as a substitute against Tottenham in August 2000.
United last turned out at the Keepmoat Stadium in March 2010, when Andy Carroll's second-half strike proved to be the difference en route to another victory and, ultimately, the Championship title.
The friendly is Newcastle's second of the summer, with the Magpies having already confirmed a match at Irish side Bohemian on Saturday, 16th July (2pm kick-off).
Ticket details will be announced in due course.
