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!
Kids put The Newcastle Jets on the spot ahead of #JETSTOUR17
Day 3 on tour started with The Jets conduct training in the morning, before heading to Gipps Street Sporting Field to conduct a Jets: PLAY Clinic for 200 local kids.
Day 4 kicked off with the squad training in Tamworth in the morning, before heading out to local schools to connect with fans and spread the footballing gospel.
This was followed by an evening match against a combined Northern Inland Football Select 11 at Scully Park, with The Jets running out winners 16-0.
