Stenhoosemuir's official site states:
"To avoid any confusion this fixture has NO connection with Newcastle United FC

We havvent got a clue just who they are or where they play, but yi can 'rest assured that 'The Geordie Times' will be there (hopefully!) to bring yoo a new groundhoppers match report IF it happens!
Aalso reported iz a rumoured friendly against French side Monaco which could be played somewhere in Jawmany az well! (possibly 'behind closed doors', 300 miles and SIX hours by train from Chemnitzer!?) (we've done wor homework!)---az well az a friendly against Torkish side Fenebache in Austria!
There's very disappointin' news for wor north American 'Toon Army' cousins, az wor proposed pre season game against AC Milan in Pittsburgh haz been caalled off.
Wor rovin' 'Geordie Times' reporter sent us this 'exclusive' news a little while back from 'The Pittsburgh Post'
"A proposed soccer match at 'Heinz Field' featuring popular European professional club AC Milan has been called off!
Local organisers, including The (Pittsburgh) Steelers, apparently want more time to promote the event and are eying a game in 2013 instead, said a sauce with knowledge of the negotiations.
AC Milan first announced an August 4th friendly on it's website. The date was subsequently changed to August 3rd because of a schedule conflict at the stadium.
NEWCASTLE UNITED was billed as a tentative opponent. The Steelers however, never signed off on the match for this year and AC Milan is looking for a replacement match!"
REMEMBER!---yi read this 'exclusive' news forst in 'THE GEORDIE TIMES'!
News aalso reaches 'The Geordie Times' that wor proposed tour of Sooth Africa HAZ NOW BEEN CANCELLED for financial reasons.
Proposed sponsors 'Vodacom' have apparentlee pulled oot and 'The Geordie Times' 'exclusive' source said >>>>>>>>>>>
"As far as I know the tournament is out!.
'Vodacom are NOT sponsoring the tournament this year and as a result of that it has been cancelled!
The talks have stopped and there is no way it will take place this year as it is late!"
|"GET THE SUN TAN LOTION OOT!"|
