Kids ask the Newcastle Jets the funniest things...

Each year, Greater Bank fuels The Jets Tour to give back to the community and get the Jets full Hyundai A-League squad closer to their fans. This year, to promote the Tour to fans, we thought we’d have a little fun in the process. While unsuspecting team members Roy O’Donovan, Jason Hoffman, and Daniel Georgievski stepped into the hot seat expecting to see a room full of journalists, they were instead greeted by a room full of… kids. Big fans can come in small packages and these young fans jumped at the opportunity to ask their heroes anything they wanted (with no exceptions).

We wanted to show you a side of the Jets you might not often get to see, the side that has to answer tough questions like who has the smelliest feet, why W-League players get paid less than their A-League peers and who listens to Justin Bieber. Big thanks to The Jets for being such good sports!

Taree

The first day on tour saw us visit Taree, where the entire Jets squad hosted a Jets: PLAY clinic at Omaru Park for over 200 kids.

The players put locals through their paces with fun games and drills, and were available to mix with fans, take selfies and sign autographs.

Next stop was Port Macquarie, where the Jets visited local schools as part of Greater Bank's Jets: LEARN Program. Local kids got their chance to learn from their footballing heroes on their own turf.
