Vale open their pre-season games with a short trip to face local non-league opposition Newcastle Town, in what has become a traditional pre-season fixture between the two clubs.
Newcastle Town was formed as a Sunday league club in 1964. The club as it is now emerged in 1986 following the merger of Parkway Clayton and Newcastle Town, after the original Newcastle Town ran into financial difficulties, and a year after initial merger talks had broken down.
In the 1999–2000 season the club reach the semi-finals of the FA Vase. Starting off in the second qualifying round with a 4–0 home win over Dudley Town they were eventually knocked out in the semi-finals by eventual winners Deal Town 3–1 on aggregate.
The club finally won the North West Counties league in 2010 and as a result were promoted to the Northern Premier League First Division South for the 2010–11 season.
