Squadron Statement: New Away Venue

The Squadron FSC would like to announce a new partnership for away games viewing at the Sydney Junction Hotel in Hamilton (SJ’s).

Recently under new management, this iconic hotel has been given a stunning renovation with a facelift of undeniable character and charm. SJ’s is located in a primary position on Beaumont Street and is located directly opposite to Hamilton Station.

In our recent dealings with them, they have proven to be strong supporters of Football in the Hunter and the Newcastle United Jets.

They have a decent number of large TV screens throughout the venue including a large projector screen, which will be used on Match days for Jets fans to view.

We are very pleased to also announce that ALL Newcastle Jets Members will be able to purchase house beers for $5. When you order your drink simply show your membership card to the bar staff.

We look forward to seeing all Jets supporters at SJ’s for our next away match on Sunday 22nd February at 3pm for Newcastle’s game against the Wellington Phoenix.

The Newcastle Tennis District Club in Broadmeadow will remain our pre-game venue for the remainder of the season.

Squadron Statement: Bring back the Golden Years

“Football would be without enjoyment if you removed the possibility of doing something about it”

While we don’t demand fans follow our lead it has been decided by The Squadron FSC that we make a demonstration to show our displeasure at the current running of our club the Newcastle United Jets.

We believe the ideal way without removing our support for the eleven players on the field is that we begin to wear our former colours, gold, on game day. This can be from an old Jersey to a gold t-shirt.
This movement is not confined to the active bays but the whole stadium.

Gold was the colour we wore when we had a club to be proud of and where some of the city’s finest soccer memories have come from.

From our first a-league game in August 05, our grand final win in 2008 and our games in Asia. The memories in gold are endless.

This is not a protest against the colours of the club, more a disapproval at how our club is being run and what it stands for today.

We support the club in victory and defeat but we do not support the way the club is being run at the moment.

We don’t demand ownership changes but we need to see that current management has a real and successful plan for club revival, that the club is being held accountable and providing the best product for all loyal fans throughout the Hunter who back the club.

We as Newcastle United Jets fans are the most loyal fans in the league and deserve so much better.

Wear Gold and

BRING BACK THE GOLDEN YEARS

by and for supporters of football in Newcastle, Australia
