Jets training off for players to witness Australia’s night of Glory

Australia vs Denmark

All Newcastle Jets training was cancelled on Thursday morning to give all Academy players the opportunity to watch Australia’s night of glory in the FIFA World Cup.

In the third and final match of Group D against Denmark, Australia recorded a 1-0 victory which secured second spot in the group and a place in the final 16!

This is the second time in Australia’s history we have reached the Final 16, 2006 being the first! Our opponent in this knockout phase of the World Cup is twice world Champion Argentina!

The difference in pedigree is enormous and the Argentinian captain Lionel Mesi, will be playing in his last world cup. The match will be played on Sunday 4th December at 6:00am.

Australia’s road to glory finds them against an opponent who is a favourite for the title.

Whatever happens on Sunday morning, these performances by the Socceroos are the bread and butter for the young Newcastle Jets players who wake up at 5.30 every morning to go to training. They serve as a role model for every young Australian footballer, that if you work hard enough, anything is possible in the World Game.

Good luck Australia.

Central Coast Mariners prove to be a tough opponent for the Newcastle Jets


In hot and windy conditions at Central Coast Sports College, Kariong on Sunday afternoon, Central Coast Mariners proved too hard a nut to crack for the U18s Newcastle Jets, running out victors by 4-0!

Playing without half a dozen players from the team that won the 2022 Youth League Two Premiership and Grand Final, only seven weeks earlier, the Jets looked slow and disjointed.  CCM looked quicker to the ball, played a better passing game and pressed up when not in possession. They scored three goals in the first half and one in the second and didn’t appear to be threatened by the Jets.

Although this is certainly not a result most would have hoped for, it is early in the pre-season and a useful exercise from which the technical staff can draw conclusions.

Next week there will be another intra-club match followed by games against Edgeworth Eagles and Weston FC, the week after.

U18s Newcastle Jets take on Central Coast Mariners in their first trial match

2022 U16s Newcastle Jets

2022 U16s Newcastle Jets – Premiers & Grand-Final winners

U18s Newcastle Jets take on Central Coast Mariners in the first trial match for the 2023 season! The Jets commenced training on the 31 October and after intra-club matches over the past two weekends will face their first opponent at the Central Coast Sports College at Kariong.

On paper the team features few changes to the squad which won the Premiership and Grand Final in the 2022 season in the u16s age group. Against Central Coast Mariners however, as many as 6 of those players will be unavailable as they will be either away or “playing up” in the U20s!

It’s a time in the year where coaching staff experiment with players in different positions and even different age groups. It’s an opportunity for players to take on new challenges and younger additions, to step up and be counted.

Following the Central Coast Mariners, matches against Edgeworth Eagles, Weston FC, Sydney Olympic and Rydalmere FC are also planned before a short break over Christmas.
