Pre-season entertainment!

Kris Gate- former Mag.
Pre-season is fast approaching and no home fixtures have been arranged as of yet, but it doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom and there is still a chance of getting yoour football fix on Tyneside!

There are rumours of an extra home game against Sampdoria being added to the list of Newcastke pre-season friendlies, although as yet there is nothing confirmed. So after reading TheDimpleBoy’s article on Gateshead FC i felt inspired, and thought as a fellow Gateshead and Newcastle fan it was my right to promote the team.

Even though Newcastle have no pre-season home fixtures arranged yet, you still have the opportunity to view a game of football, where fans are just as passionate as any. Gateshead FC have arranged a heap of home friendlies, and all against strong opponents worth to watch.

On the 9th July, Gateshead will be facing Lee Clark’s Huddersfield Town, a side which were beaten in the league one play-off final by a strong Peterborough side. Huddersfield are likely to be fielding Gateshead’s local hero Lee Novak who scored 29 goals in 35 games for the Heed. He left to join Huddersfield for a fee of Β£150,000 (and is a fan of Newcastle!)

On the 16th July Gateshead will be hosting another strong side, in the form of Carlisle United. Carlisle won the Johnstone Paint Trophy earlier on this year when new dad Peter Murphy netted the only goal of the game against Brentford. Then on the 30th July Gateshead will unwelcomely welcome Sunderland XI. This match should be great, Sunderland will field their young ‘prospects’ in what will be a fiesty game as most Gateshead fans are Newcastle fans too.

The next home pre-season fixture is against Newcastle XI, which will again have the ‘away’ side showing ‘their’, or even ‘our’ young prospects. This match will be a fun game, a one which will give both teams a bit of extra experience too!

You can view all of Gateshead’s pre-season fixtures here, and remember, even though Newcastle lack home fixtures, Gateshead don’t. Get yourself there and support the other ‘black and white army’.

And don’t forget to get to any league games, with Newcastle the priority obviously!

    Very nice team Matuidi and Tiote would be amazing together and are back four would look alot better with them two just ahead of them but K.Walker i dont rate him think simpson is better i would like hutton at RB and hope jose stays i think we could push for top 6 with that team imo.

    Batty I heard on twitter that you have become the official tipster for bet 365 and apparently you get 2% of every losing bet lodged ? can you confirm if thats true or not ? as I didn’t think you would be guilty of betraying your mates for a few quid πŸ˜† πŸ˜‰

    @ @elAato Definitely WILL sign a new striker. One to play off the shoulder I think

    MsiDouglas Mark Douglas
    @ @paulrich58 Cheers fella. Think the window will continue in same vein – maybe three more (possibly). Definitely a Defoe-type striker
