'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Better Late Than Never.

We finally got confirmation this morning of Newcastle United's pre season friendlies.

Our first in three weeks time on the 16th July, sees us travel to Fir Park in Motherwell, which is just South of Glasgow for a 7pm kick off against the current Scottish Premier league runners up.

Then it's off to Northern Portugal for two games against Rio Ave who finished 6th in their league last season and Pacos de Ferreira who managed third and a champions league shot, respectively. These are two of the lesser known Portugese sides but a challenge none the less and bearing in mind, Benfica knocked us out of the Europa League last year, the Portugese premier league is not one to be knocked.

The two games will be played on the Saturday and the following Tuesday. The 20th and 23rd of July. Both probably 6pm kick offs.

Sunday 28th July sees us head back to blighty with a trip to the seaside to face Blackpool. NUFC target Tom Ince may feature here but for which side?. This one sees a more respectable 3pm kick off.

Two days later, it's straight up the M6, A74 and M74 to face St Mirren at their aptly named St Mirren Park. The two black and whites competing in a 7.30pm kick off this time.

To finish for now, we have a home tie against SC Braga, who are another Portugese side. A strange 6pm Saturday night kick off looms on the 10th August but with eleven days or so separating the last two games, it's expected that another fixture will be added.

Fixtures in full:

Tuesday, 16th July - Motherwell away
Saturday, 20th July - Rio Ave away
Tuesday, 23rd July - Pacos de Ferreira
Sunday, 28th July - Blackpool away
Tuesday, 30th July - St. Mirren away
Saturday, August 10th - SC Braga home
