U16s Newcastle Jets play the second last match of the season away to Hakoah Sydney City and are in the hunt for a win which will contribute to them winning the Premiership and the Newcastle Jets Academy gaining promotion to FNSW Boy’s Youth League 1! With two games remaining the u16s Newcastle Jets are 5 points ahead of Hills United who play Parramatta on Wednesday night and who meet Rydalmere Lions on Saturday. Both Hakoah and Rydalmere will be fighting for 4th place on the ladder which will enable them to enter the semi-finals.
If the Jets win and Hills United defeat Parramatta and lose or draw against Rydalmere, the Jets win the 2022 U16s Premiership on Saturday. If both teams win, all will be decided on the last day at Speers Point where the Jets require a win or a draw to claim the title. If the Jets lose against Hakoah and Hills United defeat both Parramatta and Rydalmere, the Jets require a win at Speers Point on the final game to win the Premiership!
In the first match at Speers Point the Jets overcame Hakoah by 3-1. In the past 5 matches, the Jets have won 4 and had 1 draw while Hakoah have won 2, lost 2 and had 1 draw.
U18s Newcastle Jets are in 4th spot on the points table with a game against equal second last Hakoah on Saturday and Nepean on Monday. The Jets are stronger on paper and if they win both matches, they should reach 2nd spot and be in the semi-finals.
U15s Newcastle Jets are comfortably in 2nd place on the points table and should overcome 10th placed Hakoah who have won only 1 game in their past five outings on Saturday and 2nd last Nepean on Tuesday in Sydney.
U14s Newcastle Jets are 6th on the points table and will not make the semi-finals regardless of the results in their final three games of the season. They meet a strong Hakoah team who is only 1 point behind them on the points table on Saturday but should not have any difficulty overcoming second last Nepean next Wednesday.
U13s Newcastle Jets are equal 1st on the ladder with a game in hand! They will meet stiff resistance from Hakoah on Saturday who are only one point behind but should have no troubles over second last placed Nepean next Wednesday.
Regarding the Club Championship, Newcastle Jets are in second place on the table which leads to promotion to FNSW Boy’s Youth League 1. The u14s to u18s teams have a total of 11 games to play until the end of the season. For the Newcastle Jets Academy to secure 2nd place and therefore promotion they need to record 5 wins in those 11 matches!
This should be achieved by mid-week during the games at Nepean in Sydney!
