U16s Newcastle Jets face South Coast United in Round 27 of the competition on Saturday in Wollongong and the next day play the wash out game with Prospect United from Round 11 in Sydney!
Licking their wounds from their second defeat of the season at Central Coast on Tuesday night, the U16s Jets will have their work cut out as many of their players will probably be unavailable as they will be “playing up”! The magnitude of their task can be gauged by the fact that South Coast defeated Nepean the previous Saturday 2-1 in Sydney!
During the match against Prospect most players should be available to play as they are not required to play up on Sunday. Obviously, there is little time for recovery but Prospect will also be in the same boat as they too will have played another game the previous day.
The remaining Jets age groups will be in the same boat as the u16s. All the teams will be trying to gain as many points for the club championship which leads to promotion to FNSW Boy’s League 1. The degree of success will depend on player availability, how well they play on the day as well as how they cope with fatigue.
