Magpies confirm final friendly of pre-season schedule
Newcastle United will entertain Championship side Stoke City in their final pre-season friendly ahead of the 2020/21 Premier League season.
The Potters - managed by former Magpies forward Michael O'Neill - will travel to St. James' Park on Saturday, 5th September for a 1pm (BST) kick-off.
Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic and the Government guidelines around it, spectators will not be able to attend the match.
Steve Bruce's side kicked off their pre-season campaign with a 3-0 win against Crewe Alexandra on Tuesday - part of a week-long training camp at the multi-million pound Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate complex in the Yorkshire countryside, and will face Barnsley and Middlesbrough in behind-closed-doors training ground matches ahead of Stoke's visit.
The kick-off time for Saturday's game against Barnsley has been moved forward to 1pm (BST), having originally been scheduled for 3pm.
