U16s Newcastle Jets grounded due to anticipated wet weather

SOCCER WASH OUT

Newcastle Jets Academy players (male) were informed on Thursday morning that their Round 20 scheduled match on Sunday with Bonnyrigg White Eagles on the synthetic of LMRFF at Speers Point had been transferred to the grass pitch due to a clash with Emerging Jets girls and due to the anticipated wet weather, the game is called off. The match according to the Football NSW website will rescheduled to a later date, to be determined.

This will be the second rescheduled match of the season for the Jets Academy teams! The first was Round 11 against Prospect United SC at William Lawson Reserve, Sydney. Despite Round 11 being played on 1st May, 3 months ago, the washed-out fixture has yet to be played, nor has a date been set for the game!

U16s Newcastle Jets too strong, defeating Parramatta FC 4-1

JEST PIC

U16s Newcastle Jets were too strong for Parramatta FC at Melita Stadium in Sydney on Sunday afternoon. Despite playing on a poor surface not conducive to the free-flowing passing game of the Jets, Parramatta were unable to curb the appetite of their Novocastrian visitors who ran out winners by 4-1.

Training and playing on synthetic surfaces all season, the Newcastle Jets would understandably have needed some time to get the weighting of their passes correct on the grass surface of Melita Stadium. Given the poor quality of the surface however, the Newcastle players had the additional problem of the ball being bumpy and thereby preventing them from demonstrating their free-flowing passing game.

Despite this, they were able to take the lead by 2-0 before being pegged back to 2-1 just before half time! In the second half the Newcastle team demonstrated more composure on the ball and dominated possession and goal scoring opportunities. Another 2 goals were added for an emphatic final 4-1 score line!

This win enables the U16s Newcastle Jets to retain their 4 point lead at the top after narrow victories by both Nepean FC and Hills United on the previous day!

The clean sweep of 5 victories in all five age groups also assisted the Newcastle Jets to retain their first spot on the Club Championship points table.

Round 19: U16s Newcastle Jets travel away to Parramatta FC

13 (2)

U16s Newcastle Jets are away to Parramatta FC on Sunday at Melita Stadium in Sydney. On paper they are favourites to collect the 3 points as the local team are in 10th spot having scored a mere 17 goals in 17 matches. The Jets won the first fixture in Newcastle by 2-0. Parramatta usually like to play compact and the test for the Jets will be finding a way to break them down. In first place and with the best attack and best defense in the league, if there is one team that should be able to crack their defense open, it’s the Jets! It’s a game that the Jets should win but they will have to work for it.

U18s Newcastle Jets should also return from Melita stadium with the 3 points as the local team are 2nd last on the table and also because they need to redeem themselves from three defeats in their past 5 matches! This is a must win for the Jets to regain a little lost confidence and in order to keep within close distance to the league leaders, St George City FA.

U15s Newcastle Jets should come away with 3 points given that Parramatta are last on the points table and with only 2 wins in 16 matches. The U15s have had some difficult weeks with many of their players unavailable due to the flu. Hopefully all these problems have been resolved and they will be able to notch another victory and get closer to league leaders St George City FA.

U14s Newcastle Jets also look favourites to come away with 3 points from an opponent who is 2nd last on the points ladder! Parramatta have only won 4 matches all season and have scored a mere 15 goals in 17 games! It will be a compact game from the locals and the Jets will need to find ways of breaking them down if they want to collect the 3 points.

U13s Newcastle Jets should come away with all 3 points against a team which has not won a single game all season and has scored only 8 goals in 17 matches! The difference in ability between the two teams is huge and the Jets should return victorious to make up for their shock loss to NWS Spirit last week!

U16s Newcastle Jets crush NWS Spirit 4-1 to go 4 points clear

22

In what can be described as an exhibition of strength, U16s Newcastle Jets defeated NWS Spirit 4-1 on Sunday afternoon at Speers Point to go 4 points clear on the points table after Round 18 of the competition! Scoring first through a well worked combination and a deflection off an attempted block by a Jets defender, the Sydney siders were all smiles amidst the cheers from their supporters at the LMRFF! By half time the smiles were all but gone as the Jets put 3 goals away and looked very dominant.

In the second half the Newcastle team added a further goal to their tally but should have scored at least 3-4 more! In the last 10 minutes the Jets midfield was so dominant that it was enabling it’s attack to sport with the Sydney defense! Newcastle players were taking 3-4 strikes at the NWS goal before the Sydney defense could repel each attack! This was in stark contrast to the Rydalmere game which cost us 3 points due to our inability to crack open the opposition defense!

Round 18: U16s Newcastle Jets clash with NWS Spirit at Speers Point

Lead pic

U16s Newcastle Jets will be seeking to distance themselves further from Nepean FC and Hills United who play each other this weekend, by defeating NWS Spirit on Sunday. The Jets beat their opponents in Sydney 2-0 early in the season but they were a formitable force then, and they are an even tougher opponent now! For the record, the Spirit are in 7th spot on the table with 8 wins and 6 losses but on their day, they can beat any team. The Jets who are in 1st place will need to be on their game for the duration of the match!

U18s Newcastle Jets share 1st place on the ladder with St George City FA and in 3rd spot, just 2 points behind, are NWS Spirit! This is another big clash by two teams very similar in strength. Both have lost 5 matches but the Jets have won 10 to Spirit’s 9. This game is so evenly matched that minor details will probably decide the victor.

U15s Newcastle Jets have slipped into 3rd spot and need to play consistently well throughout the game if they are to collect the 3 points against 7th placed NWS Spirit. The Jets have won 3 more games but the Spirit have only lost 4 to the Jet’s 5! The one advantage the Jets have is in attack. They have scored 47 goals to Spirit’s 27 while they both have conceded 20. Will the Jet’s firepower be enough to bring home the 3 points?

U14s Jets and Spirit are in 6th and 7th spot on equal points! There is very little separating these teams. Spirit have won four of their last five games while the Jets only two! Again a very tough match and one which will probably be decided on minor details.

U13s are flying high in 1st spot followed by NWS Spirit 4 points behind. Another great battle between the two leading teams in the age group. The Jets have won four of their last five outings while the Spirit only three! Again, very little separates the two teams and this will be a thrilling match.

U16s Newcastle Jets prove too strong for Bankstown United FC

285532792_821206585950600_7231510564812290017_n (2)

In icy conditions at Jenson Park Sydney, U16s Newcastle Jets proved too strong for Bankstown United FC on Saturday afternoon. Straight from kick off the Newcastle team were awarded a penalty when the Sydney goalkeeper tripped a Newcastle player inside the box! Despite awarding the penalty which was easily converted into a goal, the goalkeeper received neither a red or even a yellow card!

The Jets controlled possession throughout the half and had another goal scored from a well taken corner but the referee decided that the Bankstown goalkeeper was fouled, despite video footage showing he mishandled the ball and was not touched by any Newcastle player!

The second half proved more balanced with the local team being more adventurous in the middle of the field but lacking the final touch. As the game wore on, Bankstown attacked the Newcastle goal in the hope of pinching a draw while the Jets threatened with a second goal through quick counter attacks.

The game finished in a similar way to how it started with the Jets scoring in the final minute after catching the Sydney siders on the break!

This was a great result considering the number of players unavailable through sickness, suspension or playing up in the U18s. It also places U16s Newcastle Jets in 1st place on the points table with the best attack and the best defense of the competition!

U16s Newcastle Jets travel to Bankstown in Round 17 of the competition

Lead pic

After suffering their first defeat of the season last week, U16s Newcastle Jets are on the road this weekend against 6th placed Bankstown United FC. For the first time this season the Jets have slipped into 2nd spot after Nepean’s 4-1 win over Hills United in a washed out midweek fixture! Bankstown are goal shy, having scored just 20 goals this season to the Jet’s 42 but are very compact at the back. Both teams have conceded the same number of goals 12! It looks like another game during which the Jets will be called upon to unlock a tight defense.

U18s Newcastle Jets sit in 2nd place, 3 points behind league leaders St George City FA, while Bankstown are in last place with one win and two draws all season. The Newcastle team are obviously favourites to collect the 3 points.

U15s Newcastle Jets are also in 2nd spot, 2 points behind league leaders St George City FA, while Bankstown sit in 11th place with just 4 wins all season. As with their u16s counter parts, the U15s Bankstown team are goal shy, having scored 18 goals to Newcastle’s 45! They are compact in defense and the Jets will be called upon to unlock this to come away with the 3 points.

U14s Jets will have their hands full against a Bankstown team in 2nd spot, 12 points in front of the sixth placed Newcastle team. Although the Bankstown team have only lost once all season, they have only scored 26 goals but they are very tight at the back, 11 goals conceded. This will be another close arm wrestle.

U13s Newcastle Jets are flying high in 1st spot, 4 points ahead of their nearest rival, while Bankstown sit in 5th spot 11 points behind. The strength of the Newcastle team is it’s attack with 66 goals scored while Bankstown have leaked 30! The Jets are favourites to come away with the 3 points.

In the Club Championship, the Newcastle Jets have slipped in 3rd spot after last week’s disastrous weekend and a combination of mid-week games. Despite this there are another 14 games to be played and plenty of time to repair the damage. It’s very clear that the first three spots will be contested by Hills United FC, St George City FA and Newcastle Jets.

U16s Newcastle Jets taste defeat for the first time against Rydalmere Lions FC

TITLE PIC

In icy and windy conditions at the LMRFF on Sunday afternoon the U16s Newcastle Jets sustained their first defeat of the season at the hands of Rydalmere Lions FC! In probably the worst game of the season, the Newcastle team created just one clear cut goal scoring opportunity throughout the entire match while Rydalmere created none! The only goal came from a cross and a deflection from a Newcastle player that placed the ball into the path of a Rydalmere forward who had no difficulty tapping the ball into the net.

Having one of the best defenses in the league and coming away with two defeats in their last three matches, Rydalmere were determined to keep the Newcastle Jets at bay. Five yellow cards and a red is a good indication of their determination in this match. The Jets dominated play, were strong in defense and dominant in midfield but failed to crack open the opposition defense. To the credit of the Jets coaching staff, players were rotated constantly throughout the game to find the right recipe for success but it wasn’t meant to be.

This is the U16s Newcastle Jet’s first defeat in 15 matches and with another 15 games left, there is plenty of opportunity for continued success.

U16s Newcastle Jets face Rydalmere Lions FC in the first match of the second half of the season

274637687_749788746425718_7215164911825641245_n (2)

The half-way mark of the 2022 football season was reached last week with the U16s Newcastle Jets leading the competition in 1st place on the table from the outset. The Jets have won the most games, with Hills United (11), are the only team not to have lost any game, scored the most goals (42) and have the second-best defense in the competition with only 11 goals conceded!

In contrast, Rydalmere Lions are in 4th place on the ladder, having been overtaken by Nepean who defeated them 1-0 on Wednesday night in a deferred game from Round 7. Since their 3-0 loss to the Jets in the opening game of the season, Rydalmere have won 8 matches, drawn 2 and lost a further 2. They have a very tight defense, having conceded 12 goals, only one more than the Jets but have only scored 23 goals, 19 fewer than the Jets.

The clash at Speers Point on Sunday should be a great contest for both teams. Attack will be the strength of the Jets and defense will be the strength of the Sydney-siders!

U18s Newcastle Jets are also in equal first place on the ladder at the half-way mark of the season! They will be seeking revenge for their loss against Rydalmere in the opening game of the season in Sydney! Rydalmere are in 10th place on the ladder having only won 5 matches so far and lost 6!

U15s Newcastle Jets have reached the half-way mark of the season in 2nd place on the ladder compared to their rivals who finished in 7th spot. As in the case with their U18s counterparts they too will be seeking revenge for their loss in the opening game of the season. The strength of the U15s is in their attack as they have scored 23 goals more than Rydalmere!

U14s Newcastle Jets are in equal 7th spot on the ladder together with their Sydney rivals! They will be hoping to win at Speers Point as they did in Sydney in Round 1 of the competition. Sporting two losses and one draw in their past three matches they will be desperate to collect the 3 points on home soil on Sunday.

Lastly, U13s Newcastle Jets have reached the half-way mark in first place on the points table compared to 8th spot of their Sydney rivals. The strength of the Jets is in their attack as they have scored 33 goals more than Rydalmere and are favorites to collect the 3 points on Sunday.

In the Club Championship points table the Newcastle Jets have reached the half-way mark in 1st place also.
