Keeping up with the MiniRoos

#22: The Sharks and Lions take the stage at McDonald Jones Stadium

January 13th, 2020

While our MiniRoos are still enjoying their school holidays, there was no rest for our A-League Newcastle Jets on Friday night!

Stockton Sharks and Cooks Hill United were invited to take the stage as our mascots and halftime heroes for the A-League. Looks of admiration poured upon our Newcastle Jets as it was the lucky Cooks Hill MiniRoos that had the privilege of walking out with their local stars. A tough game faced our Newcastle Jets as they took on top placed Sydney FC. Sydney took an early lead, but it was a pearler of a goal by Steven Ugarkovic that pulled the score level at halftime.

By the halftime whistle our MiniRoos were busting to play on the luxury field of McDonald Jones Stadium. The players demonstrated incredible game play, passing the ball, talking to their teammates and celebrating goals when both teams scored. Our time on the field ended and we settled in to watch what we expected to be an action-packed half. While the Jets fought hard, a disciplined Sydney FC side took the 3 points home.

Another round concluded for our Newcastle Jets as the full-time whistle was blown. Another night of football fun done and dusted.

A big thank you goes to Evan Buxton (Cooks Hill) and Jen Miller (Stockton Sharks) for their efforts leading up to and on the night. We love interacting with our clubs and providing these opportunities to our next generation of footballers!
