On Friday 5th May, The Jetstream team presented trophies to the winning players as voted on by the supporters in our recent online poll for the 2017 Jetstream Awards.
We joined the squad at Ray Watt Oval after their final training session of the season to address the playing squad. First up we briefly interviewed Jets captain Nigel Boogaard to sum up how the players felt about the season and how it ended. We then presented the winning players with their trophies in the presence of their team-mates.
We are very pleased to announce the winners of the following categories:
- Defender of the 2016/17 Season – Jack Duncan
- Midfielder of the 2016/17 Season – Steven Ugarkovic
- Attacker of the 2016/17 Season – Andrew Nabbout
- Debut Player of the 2016/17 Season – Andrew Nabbout
- Staff Member of the 2016/17 Season – Luke Blundell
- Player of the 2016/17 Season – Steven Ugarkovic
Please enjoy the video below we took of the presentation.

The Jetstream Awards are back for 2017!!
It’s obviously been a disappointing season, however what better time is there to bring back the opportunity for supporters to vote on their favourite players to receive an award and recognise their positive contributions during a difficult campaign?
We have five categories for any and all supporters to vote on:
- Defender of the season
- Midfielder of the season
- Attacker of the season
- Debut Player of the season
- Staff member of the season
All players are eligible to be voted on, the only criteria was any player needed a minimum of 5 appearances for the senior team over the course of the season. Voting closes on Thursday 27th April.
We will also be presenting a Player of the season award, however this is calculated by Man Of The Match votes for individual rounds submitted by newcastlefootball.net forum users. The Player of the season will be the player who has accrued the most points over the course of 27 rounds.
We will be having trophies made for all six awards, and subject to confirmation from the Club, we will be presenting these trophies to the players at the final training session of the season in the first week of May.

***Voting has now closed. Please keep an eye on the Jetstream social media channels to check out the trophy presentations to the winning players on the 5th May.
Thanks to everyone who voted!!***
Well it has been a struggle of a season, but it is time the fans had their say in who they thought were influential in a positive way during the 2014/15 Hyundai A-League season. Cast your vote for the player you feel was the best overall in each of the categories.
We also decided to include the office & coaching staff in a voting category as a way to recognise the contributions of those who work behind the scenes. So if you have previously had contact with a staff member who you believe should be recognised, please vote for them in their category.
Voting will be available up until 9am Thursday 14th May. The top 3 finalists in each category will be announced later the same day. We will then announce the winners on the next Jetstream Podcast episode and via social media.
Only players who made a minimum of 5 appearances during the 2014/15 season were considered for voting.
Please cast your vote below:
