Dutch test for Toon

Last updated : 17 December 2004 By Craig Hope (website editor)

Newcastle have been drawn against Dutch side SC Heerenveen in the last 32 of the Uefa Cup.

As a result of winning the group we will play our first leg in Holland on the 16th/17th February with the return leg coming a week later on the 24th at St.James.

Heerenveen are currently fifth in their domestic league and will present a tougher task than some of the second rate opposition we have faced thus far in the competition.
