Newcastle Visit Added To Pre-Season

The dust has settled on the 2016-17 season but football never sleeps does it. So, plans are afoot, many now in place, as far as Preston's pre-season preparations are concerned ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

It will be here before we know it and another tester for North End ahead of the 2017-18 Championship season has seen a pre-season friendly against Newcastle announced.

Preston will welcome the Championship champions to Deepdale for this meeting with Rafa Benitez's Premier League side Newcastle on Saturday 22nd July, kick off has been confirmed as 3pm.

Of course, as with any pre-season friendly, the main thing to get from this is a challenge and the continuation of fitness being built up - such a game should fully motivate those involved and capture the imagination of the fans.
