Bradbery continues hot streak

Kale Bradbery's hot streak shows no signs of slowing down, with seven goals in his last two outings in the NBN State League.

The hot streak of National Youth League Golden Boot winner Kale Bradbery shows no signs of slowing down, with the Newcastle Jets Youth team striker scoring seven goals in his last two outings in the NBN State League.

After missing the first three matches of the season, Bradbery-s tally for the campaign now sits at 13 goals, keeping him well in the hunt for his second consecutive NBN State League Golden Boot award.

The 19-year-old scored five goals in the Jets- 7-2 win over Valentine FC a fortnight ago, before following it up with a brace against Weston Workers Bears FC in a 3-1 win for the Jets.

“I couldn-t have done it without the boys, they-ve been giving me good service and getting me into good positions to score,” Bradbery said.

“We-ve all picked up our performance in the last couple of matches and I guess I-ve been able to benefit from that.”

The win over Weston saw the Jets notch back-to-back wins for the first time this season and they now sit in fifth place on the competition ladder.

They face the sixth-placed Lambton Jaffas in Round 12 of the NBN State League at Arthur Edden Oval on Saturday.

“The younger boys in our team are starting to adapt to the physicality of the State League and hopefully we can keep pushing on and make the finals,” Bradbery said.

“Lambton are in good form at the moment as well, so it should be a good game this weekend.

“Hopefully we can pick up the three points and keep kicking on from there, because it-s a really tight competition at the moment.”

Bradbery said the Jets- third-placed finish in the 2012/13 National Youth League competition had held them in good stead for the current NBN State League season and beyond.

“It was our best finish ever in the National Youth League and we probably could have finished even higher on the ladder if it wasn-t for a few games we lost that we shouldn-t have,” he said.

“That gives us a lot of confidence to know we can be really competitive in that competition and hopefully next season we can finish even higher.”
