Sweet charity for Kev.

Alex Ferguson and Kevin Keegan are on a collision course again.

The FA officially confirmed yesterday that Newcastle have accepted the invitation to play in the Charity Shield on August 11.

It means Keegan's side will kick off their season against the team which pipped them for the championship.

And the Newcastle boss will march out alongside Old Trafford manager Ferguson after bitterly criticising him in the final days of the season.

"It's brilliant news," Newcastle defender Steve Watson said last night. "It's not the way we wanted to qualify for the Charity Shield - we wanted to get there by winning the League.

"But it will be a great day for our fans and gives us a real lift before the start of the season."

Keegan has unhappy memories of the Charity Shield after being sent off for clashing with Leeds skipper Billy Bremner in 1974. He served an 11- match ban.
