NEWCASTLE Jets players and coaches have met 120 young local soccer players at the A-League club’s free coaching clinic at Bernie Goodwin Oval, Morisset.
The 90-minute clinic was open to children aged from six to 12.
The clinic was made possible by Greater Bank.
Morisset branch manager Kelly Keywood said the clinic was one of a number of free Hunter clinics the bank and Jets’ were hosting for the community.

“We have so many keen young footballers in our area and this was a great opportunity for them to get some skills and inspiration,” Ms Keywood said.
“As the major community partner of the Jets, Greater Bank is helping it to better connect with the community to build a stronger football club for our region,” she said.
After the clinic, the kids chased autographs and photographs with the players, and enjoyed a free sausage sizzle and goody bag. The Jets players were particularly impressed by the dedication of one young soccer player who was sporting a soccer ball haircut.
