#JetsTour17 – Overview

#JetsTour17 commenced in Taree on Monday 14 August when the team held a Clinic for over 240 kids at Omaru Park.

The trip then moved on to Port Macquarie, where Ernie Merrick, Lawrie McKinna, Roy O’Donovan & Nikolai Topor-Stanley took part in a breakfast function.

On Tuesday night the Jets played Football Mid North Coast’s select squad, with over 4,000 people venturing to the friendly at Port Macquarie’s Regional Stadium - an outstanding response from the local community.

The team then made the transition to Tamworth and on arrival in Australia’s country music capital the Jets held a training session at Scully Park. The afternoon was dedicated to the kids, with the full squad holding a clinic for 180 children at Gipps Street Sporting Fields.

The second match of the #JetsTour17 was against Northern Inland Football’s (NIF) best players. Almost 1,200 fans came out on a chilly Thursday evening in Tamworth to see the Jets win 16-0 against the NIF Select squad, as Irish marksman O’Donovan claimed an impressive double-hat-trick.

On their return trip Newcastle, the squad stopped in Singleton for another clinic as they meet more young fans to top off another successful Jet: Tour.
