278808158_788737859197473_6027889677785298348_n

U16s Newcastle Jets drop another 2 points after being held to a 3-3 draw at Rockdale in Sydney in Round 13 of the competition! After conceding a 2-2 draw the previous week in Newcastle against South Coast Flame, the U16s playing at full strength were favorites to defeat lowly placed St George FC. The script didn’t go according to plan and even the locals were rubbing their eyes when they reached a 3-0 lead!

The Newcastle team began the match playing rushed football without the composure we have been accustomed to seeing over the past 3 months that has resulted in them recording 10 consecutive victories from their first 10 matches. Despite this, they were handed the opportunity to stamp their authority on the game with an early penalty, but the St George goal keeper saved the day!

A couple of chances fell to the local team but were easily handled by the Newcastle goal keeper. Then a long range effort was initially saved but the rebound fell to the feet of an on coming St George player who had no difficulty putting away the ball for a surprising 1-0!

A little later a cross from the left was misjudged and came off the Newcastle goal keeper’s foot to end up at the back of the net for a 2-0 advantage to the local team. The Jets created some chances of their own but the ball refused to end up at the back of the net, ending the half 2-0 in favor of St George.

With the start of the 2nd half things got even worse when a corner kick for the local team and the ensuing pushing and shoving on the Newcastle goalkeeper resulted in a poor clearance and a 3-0 lead!

With a mountain to climb the Newcastle Jets team clicked into gear and began to take control of the game. Winning a simple 1 v 1 duel on the left by a Jets winger resulted in a cross and a simple tap in for the score-line to be reduced to 3-1. A cross from the right had the St George defense stretched to the extent that the Jets left winger was able to head the ball unchallenged into an empty net for a 3-2 margin! With 2 minutes to go, a quickly taken free kick from the middle of the field resulted in a well taken volley from the right and Newcastle clawing their way back to 3-3!

Whilst the Newcastle team should be congratulated for fighting back and salvaging a drew, the inability to take control of the game from the start for the second week in a row is something which needs to be fixed during the week before our next game.

The St George team also deserve a pat on the back for their effort in attacking their opponent and showing no fear during the game.

Round 13 SNSW Boy’s Youth League2: U16s Newcastle Jets are away to St George FC in Sydney

280326420_802191124518813_1033708854936062943_n

Still licking their wounds from dropping their first points of the season in Round 12 of the competition against South Coast Flame, the U16s Newcastle Jets are away to lowly placed St George FC in Sydney on Saturday!

On paper the Newcastle team look too strong for a Sydney side that has managed to win just 3 games from 11 outings and has conceded 11 goals in their past 2 matches! A full strength Newcastle Jets team will be too strong for the Sydney siders to stop but a lot will depend on the availability of players.

U18s Newcastle Jets are in a similar situation but their opponent is far stronger! The Jets have dropped to 2nd place on the ladder after last week’s defeat and St George are only 3 points behind in 5th spot. The Jets need to be at full strength and play very well on the day if they wish to return with the 3 points from Sydney!

U15s Newcastle Jets have their job cut out for them as St George is only in 6th spot, 9 points behind the 2nd placed Newcastle team. The U15s have the capacity to bounce back from last week’s defeat and will be hoping for a win and the possibility of narrowing the gap with 1st placed St George FA who take on 3rd placed Hills United!

U14s Newcastle Jets will be hoping to make it three wins in a row against a St George side that have only won 3 matches all season. The Newcastle side are 8 points adrift in 6th spot while St George in 8th position, 5 points behind the Novocastrians. This is a great opportunity for the u14s to bag another 3 points and show they are turning their season around.

U13s Newcastle Jets are still beating their chests after inflicting the first loss to undefeated South Coast Flame last Sunday! They are in 1st place on the ladder but another difficult test awaits them as they are up against a St George team who are in 3rd place and who have scored 51 goals in 11 matches! A win here is essential to maintain their position on the ladder and to further distance themselves from the 3rd placed team.

U16s Newcastle Jets drop their first points of the season against South Coast Flame 2-2

278403038_784930099578249_8246581239347789063_n (2)

U16s Newcastle Jets have dropped their first points of the season against South Coast Flame following the 2-2 draw they conceded on Sunday afternoon at LMRFF Speers Point. With 6 players unavailable for the match, the Newcastle team lacked the composure and confidence which characterized it’s play so far this season. Not having played a competitive match in 2 weeks due to the washed out game at Prospect United the previous week in Sydney, probably didn’t help matters either!

The game began at a quick pace with both teams playing attacking open football. The South Coast team did not play like a team that had lost its past 5 consecutive matches. The Newcastle Jets pressured the Flame goal forcing a number of corners but were unable to find a way through.

During a sustained Newcastle attack, the South Coast team counter-attacked from their left, catching our players forward and despite our efforts to close them down, a simple tap in was all that was required from a cross across the face of our goal! This was our 3rd goal conceded in 11 matches!

The South Coast team then defended in numbers, pressed us at every opportunity and counter-attacked from both flanks. Despite a handful of opportunities by the Newcastle players they were unable to break through the human wall and went into half time 1-0 down!

The second half began in the same way as in the first with the Newcastle Jets probing the South Coast defense and the latter, simply sitting back and looking for the odd counter-attack. On one such occasion the Flame were caught high up and the Jets were able to counter from the right and bring back the game level 1-1!

Tactically, South Coast came out of their shell and both teams treated spectators with entertaining attacking football. During one such attacking move, a Jets player was tripped inside the box and the Jets were awarded a penalty. This was easily converted into a goal and it appeared the team got out of jail. With the score line at 2-1 it looked like the Jets would secure another win to keep their maximum points tally intact.

And just when spectators thought the game was over, a well executed volley by a Flame player from outside the box levelled the game to 2-2!

Round 12 FNSW Boy’s Youth League2: U16s Newcastle Jets take on South Coast Flame at Speers Point

278932172_788741429197116_1956276205370618485_n (2)

U16s Newcastle Jets welcome South Coast Flame to LMRFF on Sunday afternoon in a clash for Round 12 of the competition. Despite not playing against Prospect United SC last week due to the wet weather, the Newcastle Jets remain in 1st place on the ladder. South Coast Flame are in 11th position with five consecutive losses by the odd goal. Will the Jets inflict their 6th consecutive loss or will South Coast cause the upset and be the first team to take points away from the Newcastle team?

U18s Newcastle Jets also continue to lead the competition with one game in hand. South Coast Flame sit in 13th place with three games in hand, having won a mere 2 matches so far! This should be an interesting contest. Will the lack of football last weekend upset the rhythm of the Newcastle team or will it act as an opportunity to refresh the players and make them stronger than before?

U15s Newcastle Jets have slipped to 2nd place on the ladder due to the washed-out game on the weekend but they are ahead of South Coast who sit in 11th position on the ladder. The U15s South Coast team has shown “hot or cold” form this season. They tend to play well against the stronger teams but lose against teams below them on the points table. Let’s hope this trend isn’t repeated at Speers Point on Sunday.

U14s Newcastle Jets have dropped to 7th place on the ladder with one game in hand while South Coast occupy 13th spot. On paper this looks like an evenly matched contest but the 6-0 mauling of the Mounties Wonderers by the Newcastle Jets hopefully will inspire them to another victory on home soil.

Finally, U13s Newcastle Jets remain in 1st place of the ladder while South Coast sit in 6th position with three games in hand. The interesting statistic about the team from Wollongong is that they have not lost a single match from the eight played so far. Will the Newcastle Jets inflict their first defeat of the season?

In the Club Championship the Newcastle Jets continue to be comfortably in first place with St George City FA and Hills United the closest threats.

Round 11 FNSW Boy’s Youth League2:U16s Newcastle Jets travel away to Prospect United SC

01

U16s Newcastle Jets travel away to Prospect United SC on Sunday and will attempt to continue their dream run of 10 wins from 10 games! Prospect defeated Bonnyrigg 3-1 on Tuesday night in a washed out fixture which brings them to 13th spot on the ladder and two games in hand to Jet’s 1st place and on maximum points! This was Prospect’s 2nd win of the season and their biggest problem this season appears to be their inability to score goals. They have scored just 8 goals in 8 games! On paper, the Newcastle Jets are favourites to collect the 3 points but to do so, they need a professional performance similar to the one displayed against Mounties Wanderers a week ago.

U18s Newcastle Jets will have a tougher task than their U16s counterparts. Although they too are in 1st place on the table, Prospect are in 4th spot, just 4 points behind! The U18s Jets were all smiles last week, coming away from a 3-1 victory over Mounties Wanderers while Prospect lost at home 5-4 on Tuesday night against Bonnyrigg! Both teams have everything to play for and this will be an evenly contested game.

U15s Newcastle Jets are all smiles after last week’s win and reclaim of 1st place on the ladder! Prospect were also happy securing a 1-0 away win at Rydalmere but it was only their 2nd of the season and with two games in hand, are in 12th place on the ladder. The U15s Newcastle Jets should collect all 3 points in this game but they will have to work for it.

U14s Newcastle Jets recorded their biggest win of the season last week and it helped restore some confidence and 7th spot on the table, 7 points behind league leaders. This game gives U14s Jets an opportunity to collect a further 3 points from a Prospect team which has only managed two draws all season!

U13s Newcastle Jets continue to bask in the sun of 1st place on the ladder and after a hard fought win last week at home against Mounties Wanderers they need to put in another big effort against Prospect if they are to come away with the 3 points. Prospect are 10th with two games in hand and with 1 loss and 4 consecutive draws over their past 5 games!

In the all important Club Championship which determines promotion to FNSW Boy’s Youth League1 next season, the Newcastle Jets continue to occupy 1st place on 90 points, closely followed by St George City FA on 74 points and Hills United on 71 points.

U16s Newcastle Jets crush Mounties Wanderers FC 5-0

278717218_1026056001337408_417353731340993538_n

U16s Newcastle Jets secured their 10th win in 10 matches at LMRFF on Sunday afternoon against Mounties Wanderers. Given that there are a total of 30 games played, this marks the completion of 1/3 of the competition on maximum points! The U16s Newcastle Jets are also the only team in all age groups to have reached this stage on maximum points! During these 10 matches they have scored 31 goals and conceded just 2!

The Newcastle team opened proceedings early with a thunderous shot from outside the box after the Mounties goalkeeper saved a shot from close range. The Jets came close to scoring a second when another thunderbolt from outside the area rattled the Mounties woodwork. After a well taken corner was deflected by the Mounties defense a cross which ensued brought about the second goal within the first 10 minutes. Just before half time a well executed free kick was deflected by the Mounties defense, only to send the ball to an oncoming Jets forward who made the score line 3-0.

Jets’ domination continued in the 2nd half as well resulting in two further goals. The first came from a well taken header following a corner kick. The second goal was from another thunderbolt from outside the 18 yard box after a well worked move.

U16s Newcastle Jets next opponent is Prospect United SC next Sunday in Sydney.

Round 10 FNSW Boy’s Youth League2: Newcastle Jets take on Mounties Wanderers FC

279015695_788744262530166_2757149497588358256_n

U16s Newcastle Jets take on Mounties Wanderers FC in Round 10 of the season at Speers Point on Sunday 24th April. This game marks the completion of 1/3 of the season and the U16s Jets is the ONLY team of any age group that remains on maximum points!

Mounties Wanderers FC have only played 6 matches and have only won one and drawn one. They have lost 4 and are sitting in 15th place on the ladder. Despite this, the scare experienced at Northbridge in Round 9 where the Jets just managed a tough 2-1 win serves as a reminder to never under-estimate opponents.

U18s Newcastle Jets remain 1st on the ladder despite last week’s defeat at Northbridge. Mounties Wanderers are 13th on the ladder having secured just 2 wins all season! Obviously, the Newcastle team are favourites but a lot will depend on player availability and the morale of the team given the events of the past 7 days!

U15s Newcastle Jets continue in 2nd spot on the ladder just 1 point behind league leaders and will be looking for all 3 points from 13th placed Mounties Wanderers! The visitors have only won 1 game, drawn 3 and lost 2.

U14s Newcastle Jets are in 8th spot having won only 3 matches and drawn 2 so far this season. Their counter parts are in 12th position with 2 wins and 4 losses. This is a game the U14s Jets need to win.

U13s Newcastle Jets are cruising in 1st place and should get the 3 points from Mounties Wanderers who are in 13th and have only won 1 and drawn 1 game all season!
