The Newcastle Jets would like to thank all of the football fans that attended the trial match against Valentine Phoenix last Friday evening.

Entry to the trial game at Adamstown Oval was a gold coin donation to the 2009 Victorian Bushfire Fund. The generosity on show last week was incredible, with around $2000 being raised for those adversely affected by the tragic circumstances in Victoria.

The game itself ended 1-1. Valentine pounced on an opportunity in the 8th minute to take an early lead, but the Jets dominated possession throughout the match and were rewarded with an equaliser through new import striker Donny de Groot.

All proceeds from this trial have been sent to the 2009 Victorian Bushfire Fund. To view more information, or to donate, simply visit the Australian Red Cross website.
