United confirm pre-season schedule

Written by Rory Mitchinson

Newcastle United will take on Hibernian and AS Saint-Étienne in pre-season friendlies as part of their preparations for the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

The Magpies will travel to Easter Road to face Scottish Premiership outfit Hibs on Tuesday, 30th July (7.45pm kick-off), before welcoming Ligue 1 side Saint-Étienne to St. James’ Park on Saturday, 3rd August (3pm kick-off).

With their participation in this summer’s Premier League Asia Trophy having already been confirmed, the announcement means that United’s pre-season schedule is now complete:

Wednesday, 17th July – Wolverhampton Wanderers (Premier League Asia Trophy, Nanjing Olympic Sports Centre, 6pm kick-off [local time])
Saturday, 20th July – Manchester City/West Ham United (Premier League Asia Trophy, Hongkou Stadium, kick-off tbc)
Tuesday, 30th July – Hibernian (Easter Road, 7.45pm kick-off)
Saturday, 3rd August – AS Saint-Étienne (St. James’ Park, 3pm kick-off)

Managed by former Leeds United boss Paul Heckingbottom, Hibs finished fifth in the Scottish Premiership last term, one place above local rivals Hearts – who the Magpies met in a pre-season fixture two years ago.

Saint-Étienne, meanwhile, are already assured of a top-four finish in the French top flight ahead of this evening’s curtain closer against Angers and currently possess two ex-United players in their squad – right back Mathieu Debuchy, and midfielder Rémy Cabella.
