Round 24: Newcastle Jets face Northbridge Bulls FC at Speers Point

01

U16s Newcastle Jets are due to face Northbridge Bulls FC in Round 24 of the competition at Speers Point this Sunday. The U16s Jets remain in 1st place on the table despite three washed out games in the past four weeks! Northbridge have played all 23 of their matches, compared to 19 from the Jets, and are in 6th place, 13 points behind the Novocastrians.

In the first round clash the Jets were able to extract a hard fought 2-1 victory in Sydney. Having played only one competitive match in the past four weeks, compared to the Sydneysiders who have played all their matches, makes the odds even between the two teams. Given that a number of u16 Jets players may have to play up in the u18s to make up for the u18s playing up in the u20s and Youth, makes the odds in favor of Northbridge!

The three washed out matches in the past month have resulted in the U18s Newcastle Jets drop to 6th position on the ladder while Northbridge are in 10th. The inactivity by the Newcastle team for so long, coupled with many of it’s players having to step up into u20s and Youth to cover for the players who have left, makes the odds in favor of the Sydneysiders.

U15s Newcastle Jets remain in 2nd position despite playing three games less than most teams. Northbridge on the other hand have played all their games and are in 12th position! Despite this, the lack of match games by the Jets over the past month coupled with players having to play up in higher age groups evens the odds between the two teams.

U14s Newcastle Jets have dropped to 8th position on the points table, 13 points behind Northbridge who occupy 4th place! Not only are the Sydney siders a strong team, given the lack of matches played by the Jets, makes them favorites in this match!

U13s Newcastle Jets have also dropped to 4th place on the points ladder after having played only one game in the past month. Northbridge occupy 9th position and will prove a difficult opponent given the amount of inactivity by the Jets.

After this game, only six matches remain until the end of the season! Given there are 4 washed out fixtures and there is still no sign of these games being re-scheduled, it will either be a very busy six remaining weeks, or these games will not be played at all!

The Club championship battle continues between three teams, Hills United, St George City and the Newcastle Jets. Considering only two teams can gain promotion and given that both Hills United and St George City have played three games more than the Jets, they are ahead on points and favorites to finish in first and second place!

Round 23: U16s Newcastle Jets are away to Central Coast United in Gosford

01 LEAD pic

U16s Newcastle Jets contest Round 23 of the competition away to Central Coast United in Gosford on Saturday. CCU sit in 12th place on the ladder after having played 21 matches while the Jets are in 1st place after 19 games! The first round fixture at Speers Point ended with the Jets winning by 4-0. The problem of CCU is their inability to score goals. They have found the back of the net a mere 17 times in 21 matches! In contrast the Jets have the best attack with 54 goals scored as well as the best defense, 14 goals conceded. The difference in strength is huge and the Jets are obviously favorites to collect the 3 points and edge closer to the Premiership. The only factor that may play a role are the number of Jets players that might be called upon to start in the u18s squad!

U18s Newcastle Jets came close to taking points from the league leaders last week but were edged out in the final 5 minutes of the game. CCU are 13th on the ladder with the second worst defense of the competition. Regardless of the number of u16s that may be called upon to replace other squad members playing in the u20s or Youth, the 3 points are there for the taking.

U15s Newcastle Jets have regained 2nd spot on the points ladder despite having played two games less than most of their nearest rivals. CCU sit on the same points but have played two matches more. This should be a very competitive match by two teams of equal strength.

U14s Newcastle Jets secured a 2-2 draw last week against the league leaders despite going ahead 2-0! CCU are only 3 points behind them but with only half the goals scored! Despite this, the match should be a well contested game by two teams of similar ability.

U13s Newcastle Jets were surprisingly beaten last week and should bounce back with vengeance against a CCU team which has conceded 55 goals in 21 matches!

Another 3-0 routine win for U16s Newcastle Jets over St George City FA

COVER VID PIC (2)

All smiles at Speers Point on Sunday afternoon after the U16s Newcastle Jets notched their 15th win in 19 matches against St George City FA. Despite the two week lay-off by the Newcastle Jets due to two consecutive wash-out games, the U16s had little difficulty putting their Sydney opponents to the sword!

The first goal came from a well taken free kick from just outside the box. The second from poor goalkeeper handling after a free kick just passed the half-way line! The third from a well worked move from the left and a placement of the ball from inside the six-yard box. By half time and with the score line at 3-0, the contest was effectively over.

In the second half the Jets continued to dominate the game but did not add to the score. It should be noted that as many as five U16s players did not participate in this match as they were down to start in the U18s Jets match shortly afterwards! Indeed, these five were joined by another four U16s players on the bench who participated in this game for a total of nine U16s players in the U18s squad. Given the two week lay-off due to wet weather, this was a great win by the U16s and they are now in the final straight for the Premiership in the last 8 remaining games plus the three wash outs.

In other games, praise should be given to the U14s Jets who secured a 2-2 draw against the league leaders who are 15 points ahead as well as the u15s for their gutsy 3-2 win over St George City who are the league leaders in that respective age group.

Finally, a great performance by the U18s who despite going down 3-1 to St George City, the league leaders of that respective age group, fielded as many as nine U16s players in their side!

Next week the Newcastle Jets head down to Gosford to take on Central Coast United.

U16s Newcastle Jets take on St George City FA at Speers Point

01

After two washout matches the u16s Newcastle Jets return to action this Sunday at Speers Point against lowly placed St George City FA. The result in Sydney earlier in the year was an emphatic 5-1 mauling by the Jets who remain in 1st place on the ladder. St George are in 13th spot having lost 12 games and scored only 17 goals all season! Despite this, the Newcastle Jets have not played a game in over two weeks! Also, a cloud has emerged with how many players will be forced to play up on the weekend in higher age groups to cover absences. Although on paper the Jets appear to be clear favourites, it could be an interesting afternoon when considering the other two factors.

U18s Newcastle Jets will have their work cut out on Sunday as they will be facing a St George City FA outfit who as a result of playing two more games than the Jets, are in 1st place on the ladder on 41 points! If the Jets win their two games in hand, they can come to within a point of St George and if they win on Sunday, they will reclaim their position on the throne of the u18s table. Earlier in the year the u18s Jets came away with a 3-1 victory in Sydney. Again, the inactivity for two weeks plus the possibility of U18s Jets players being required to play up in older age groups could compromise their chances for the 3 points.

U15s Newcastle Jets also have their work cut out for them on Sunday afternoon at Speers Point. Beaten 1-0 in the last minute of the game in Sydney by their rivals earlier in the year, the Jets are in 2nd spot 11 points behind St George City who are 1st. With a win in the two games in hand and on Sunday, u15s could come as close as 2 points from first spot! Plenty to play for but as with all the other Jets teams, the inactivity over the past two weeks as well as the possibility of players having to play up, makes this game very difficult.

U14s Newcastle Jets are in 7th place on the ladder and need revenge for their 3-0 loss in Sydney earlier this year! With wins in their two games in hand plus a win on Sunday, they could come within 4 points of the league leaders. Plenty to play for but again the two week inactivity and the possibility of players having to play up could affect their chances.

U13s Newcastle Jets are in 3rd spot with 3 games in hand from league leaders NWS Spirit who are only 5 points in front. A win by the u13s on Sunday will bring them to within 2 points and with 3 games in hand, they will be able to reclaim their throne in 1st spot.

In the Club Championship, the Newcastle Jets have slipped into 3rd spot because of the 12 games missed over the past two weeks due to wash-outs. Only two teams get promoted into FNSW Boys’ Youth League One and there are three candidates all year, St George City FA, Hills United and Newcastle Jets. Wins against our rivals this weekend will not only help individual teams in their respective age group table but also assist the Club collectively in cementing one of the two positions that lead to promotion.

U16s Newcastle Jets grounded for a second week in a row due to wet weather

wet-weather

Newcastle Jets Academy players were informed on Friday afternoon that their Round 21 fixture on Saturday with Nepean FC at Cook Park (St Marys) Sydney has been called off due to the pitch being waterlogged due to the recent heavy rain in the area.

This is the 3rd rescheduled match of the season after Round 11 against Prospect United SC, and Round 20 against Bonnyrigg White Eagles last week.

U16s Newcastle Jets are away to Nepean in the “Battle of the Leaders”

LEAD PIC

Round 21 of the competition has the U16s Newcastle Jets travelling away to Nepean FC in the Battle of 1st against 3rd. After washed out games last week for both teams, the Jets remain in first spot, 1 point ahead of Hills United while Nepean FC have slipped in third spot, 5 points behind the Jets and 4 behind Hills United! These three teams have monopolised the first three positions on the ladder since Round 1.

The Jets defeated Nepean 4-1 in the first fixture at Speers Point and a win in this match will put them 8 points ahead of their rival. Keeping in mind two wash out games against lowly placed Prospect United (13th ) and Bonnyrigg (16th ), the Jets will only have Hills United as their closest rival for the Premiership and they also play this team on the last game of the season at Speers Point!

This is a must win game and the U16s Jets have no reason to doubt their ability to return with the 3 points from this game. Their biggest opponent will be the weather and the possibility of yet another washed out fixture, given that Nepean FC play on a grass field.

U18s Newcastle Jets are in 4th spot on the ladder, a mere 4 points behind the league leaders St George City FA. Nepean FC are in 13th position having only won 6 games from 18 outings! The Jets are clearly favourites to return with the 3 points and keep the pressure on the top of the table.

U15s Newcastle Jets are in 2nd spot on 37 points but 8 points behind league leaders St George City FA! Nepean in 15th and has only won 2 matches all season. Again the Jets are favourites to return with the 3 points.

U14s Newcastle Jets are in 7th spot on the ladder while Nepean FC in 14th ! This is another game that the Newcastle team should win, a victory which will help them edge further up the ladder in these final 10 games of the season.

U13s Newcastle Jets have slipped to 3rd spot, 5 points behind league leaders NWS Spirit who have played two matches more than the Newcastle team! Nepean is in 15th place having won only one game all season and conceded 74 goals! An easy 3 points for another Newcastle Jets team.
