FFA CUP: Jets to host Glory (again!) in round of 32


For the second successive year Newcastle Jets will take on Hyundai A-League rivals Perth Glory in the round of 32 of the Westfield FFA Cup.

The draw for the round of 32 of the nationwide, all-encompassing Cup competition was made at FOX SPORTS headquarters in Sydney on Wednesday afternoon.

The Jets were the first team to be drawn from Pot B, and just like in 2014 will host Perth Glory in Newcastle.

The game will be Scott Miller’s first competitive fixture in charge of the side.

Miller will be aiming to reverse last year’s 2-0 loss to Perth with his new charges. 

Details of the match including the date, venue, and kick-off time will be released over the coming days.

Northern NSW Football’s representative clubs in the competition, Broadmeadow Magic and Edgeworth FC, also drew home games for the round of 32.

Magic will host Victoria’s Heidelberg United, while Edgeworth fans are in for a treat – the Eagles are set to face A-League outfit Melbourne City in Newcastle.
