Magpies announce first two pre-season friendlies

Written by Dan King

Newcastle United have confirmed their first pre-season friendly fixtures ahead of the 2021/22 season, with Steve Bruce splitting his squad to play two separate friendlies on Sunday, 18th July.

The Magpies will make their first ever visit to the new LNER Community Stadium to face York City with a 2pm (BST) kick-off, as well as taking on League Two side Harrogate Town on the same day (kick-off time to be confirmed).

York are managed by former Newcastle man Steve Watson and the National League North side moved into their new 8,500-capacity ground - which is owned by City of York Council, and is shared with rugby league side York City Knights - in February.

United have only met the Minstermen four times competitively, all in the FA Cup, but Newcastle visited the old Bootham Crescent ground for a friendly in July 2015, losing 2-1 in front of a crowd of 5,406 - 2,048 of them Magpies fans.

Harrogate, who have just enjoyed their first season as a Football League club as well as winning the FA Trophy at Wembley earlier this month, have never played against Newcastle in a competitive match. Their EnviroVent Stadium has a capacity of 5,000.

Ticketing information for both games will be released on nufc.co.uk in due course, along with details of more pre-season friendlies as Bruce's men prepare for another season in the top flight.
