Newtown Jets Virtual Team List v Wests Magpies Wed 29th July, 2020
Welcome to Round 20 of Newtown Jets Virtual Season 2020.
While we might not be able to watch Newtown Jets games live this season we can relive past glories from years gone by. As part of Virtual Season 2020, JETS TV is broadcasting classic matches featuring our opponents from the 2020 Canterbury Cup NSW draw in “Amco Cup retro-style” on Wednesday nights at 8.00pm. Our intrepid social media team will “live tweet” the game as if they had entered a time machine and want you to be part of the action.
On Wednesday, 29th July they head to Lidcombe Oval to bring you an ISP NSW foundation clubs clash between Newtown and Wests that was actually played on Saturday, 26th May, 2018.
It was a big day of nostalgia for Wests but the Jets really needed the competition points.
The match was televised live by Channel Nine, and it was also a huge ‘Return to Lidcombe’ Day for our old foundation club compadres, Wests Magpies. Wests rejoined the Intrust Super Premiership NSW competition in 2018, after last playing in the former NSW Cup in 2012 and were sitting in 2nd place on the ladder. The Newtown Jets needed a win badly after capitulating the weekend prior against last-placed Wyong to slip to 8th place. This Magpies-Jets encounter also marked the return of the Tom Raudonikis Cup series.
Thanks to Biofreeze, Newtown Jets has named its team from the game. Many thanks to our Player Sponsors listed in brackets.
