Vale Clarrie Jeffreys

The Newtown Jets mourn the passing of the great Clarrie Jeffreys, who passed away on Thursday, 27th August.

After starting his career at Balmain, Clarrie joined the Bluebags in 1956 and spent the rest of his life involved with the club.

Between 1956-68 he played 242 games in all grades, a tally second only to Bumper Farrell, with 94 of his appearances being in first grade.

After hanging up his boots he became the reserve grade coach in 1969, and in 1970 he took the Bluebags to the reserve grade premiership. In 1974 Clarrie succeeded Jack Gibson as first grade coach, and in three seasons did a commendable job with meagre resources.

When the club was reborn in the 1990s he spent a short stint as a committeeman but was always a fan too, whose devotion to the Royal Blue never wavered. In recent years he loved the mantle as respected elder statesman, especially on the annual Reunion Day.

Vale to one of Newtown’s finest, whose service covered every angle of club activity across more than half a century.

(Terry Williams, 29th August 2020).

Schofield King’s Throwback Thursday: Jets let it Slip

Most Newtown Jets supporters would have seen the black and white version of this photo of the Newtown RLFC NSWRL first grade premiership-winning team of 1943, captained by the mighty Frank “Bumper” Farrell and coached by Arthur Folwell. This colourised version has been kindly supplied by a Newtown Jets supporter named Coll who has done a number of other interesting colourisations as well.
