Aberdeen will play English League One side Charlton Athletic in their final pre-season friendly, as the club laid out plans for the summer.

Barry Robson is preparing his team for his first full season in charge and is looking to make progress domestically and in Europe, where the team is hoping for group stage football.

A trip to London to play Charlton at The Valley just before the Premiership season starts will be a key part of the build-up for the Dons.

Aberdeen will travel to Portugal for a training camp early in their preparations, before playing two local friendlies.

Robson and his players will face Turriff United FC on Wednesday 12th July before taking on Fraserburgh FC on Saturday 15th July in a testimonial match for defender Ryan Cowie.

Further games are to be announced but the programme will end with the Charlton game on July 29, a week before the Premiership begins.

Aberdeen finished third in the league last season under Robson, who initially took over as interim boss following the sacking of Jim Goodwin before being awarded the job on a permanent basis.
