U16s Newcastle Jets take on St George and Bonnyrigg White Eagles in a double header at Newcastle University

U16S TEAM

U16s Newcastle Jets complete their football marathon of seven matches in 14 days this weekend when they meet St George on Saturday and Bonnyrigg White Eagles on Sunday at the Forum University No 2 Oval. The first match is Round 28 of the competition while the second, Round 20 which had been declared a wash out due to the weather.

The U16s Jets sit in first place of the competition, two points clear from their nearest opponent while St George occupy equal second last spot on the ladder while Bonnyrigg is last. Obviously the Jets are favourites to win both games but they might be without some players on Saturday who might be “playing up” as well as the physical fatigue from playing seven matches in 14 days!

Victory in both games is necessary for the Jets if they are to have a chance of taking out the U16s Premiership as well as contributing points towards the Club Championship that lead to promotion to FNSW Boy’s Youth League 1.

U18s Newcastle Jets will have a tough opponent on Saturday as St George sit in 6th spot on the ladder, only 4 points behind the Jets and will be contesting for a place in the final 4. The Jets have had two consecutive losses while St George have recorded only one loss in the past five games. Sunday should be an easier task for the Jets team as Bonnyrigg are second last in the competition.

U15s Jets are comfortably in 2nd spot on the ladder but will be tested by St George on Saturday who are in 11th spot and Bonnyrigg who are in 7th position. The only advantage for the Jets is that neither opponent has a chance of making the top 4 and will be playing only for their pride.

U14s Jets are in 8th position after two consecutive wins and should have a competitive game against St George who are in 12th spot. On Sunday the task will be much harder against Bonnyrigg who are in 5th position on the ladder and will be looking for points to secure a top 4 finish.

U13s Jets are in 3rd position with two games in hand but will need all the strength they can find on Saturday to quell the challenge from St George who are 4th on the ladder and who will be playing for a possible top 4 finish. Sunday will be less intense as Bonnyrigg are third last on the ladder and will only be playing for their pride.

Another interesting weekend of football and many points at stake for all five Jets teams.
