Youth Preview: Jets look to open season with three consecutive wins

This weekend our Youth team are back at home and with a tough, early challenge with Hurtsville FC.

Last week we managed a huge 8-nil victory over Fraser Park away from home, however Hurtsville have also found early success collecting two wins from two games as well.

League Three Men’s Reporter Jack George previews this weekend’s clash:

Newcastle Jets vs Hurstville FC – Sunday, 7:00pm, Lake Macquarie Regional Football Facility

Newcastle Jets will be taking on Hurstville FC in a top of the table clash, with both sides having taken home all six points available from their opening two games this year.

The Jets were in stunning form away against Fraser Park, netting eight goals, with four to Archie Goodwin and one to Mason Fernandez, Nicholas Kacev, Joshua Benson and Finn Todhunter.

Their progressive style of play, focusing on rotations, spacing play and counterpressing has prevailed this season, and Hurstville FC will have a tough task at hand after Newcastle’s territorial domination of Fraser Park, where their opponents were pinned in for the vast majority of the game.

Hurstville captain Paul Gagro believes Newcastle is likely the toughest place to go and get points, and that they’ll need to improve on their performances in the first two fixtures despite having not dropped a point yet this season.

Elsewhere for our young teams, our teams playing in the 13s to 16s age groups are also at Speers Point, playing against Nepean FC, kicking off at 8:30am.
