Newcastle to face PSV in pre-season game

July 1, 2008

Newcastle have completed arrangements for their pre-season campaign by announcing a clash with Dutch champions PSV Eindhoven.

PSV will head for St James' Park on Wednesday, August 6, three days before the Magpies entertain Spanish side Valencia.

The Dutch outfit are no strangers to Tyneside - they played at St James' in the 1997-98 Champions League and again in the UEFA Cup in 2003-04, and headed across the North Sea for a friendly two summers ago.

Kevin Keegan's men will earlier face Hartlepool and Doncaster away before heading into Mallorca Summer Cup clashes with Hertha Berlin and Real Mallorca.
