U18s Western Sydney Wanderers prove a great test for Newcastle Jets

U18s WSW vs Newcastle Jets

In their second last pre-season trial game, U18s Newcastle Jets had the opportunity to test their strengths against one of the best Academies in Australia on Saturday afternoon at Western Sydney Wanderers Football Park.

Despite losing the game 4-0, the Newcastle team was competitive for most of the game and got a taste of what it is like playing against opposition of the highest level. The difference between the two teams was that the Sydney team was a touch faster and more clinical in it’s finishing.

This match was a useful measuring tool to see how we compare to a probable top 3 side in U18s Youth League One this season. The standard is high but with a lot of hard work, within reach of the Newcastle team.

Next week Newcastle Jets test themselves against another top side in Apia Leichardt FC.
