Congratulations to all the young men who made the 2016 Western Jets U/18 TAC Squad. Well done to all who tried out over the recent months with a special mention to those who just fell short over the past few weeks.

The dedication, friendships, self improvement and overall experiences the group of young men have had has been invaluable.

In particular, we would like to congratulate James Martyn (son of our great President – Stephen Martyn) on making the squad and continuing his journey in football with his hardwork and dedication which has given him the opportunity to progress further. It wasn’t that long ago that he was playing an Auskick GRID game at Etihad Stadium with Newport Power Auskick and mixing it with Kouta and his Uncle Mick in his first year of Auskick.

Newport Power Junior Football Club would like to congratulate James on being the first Newport Power player to make the Western Jets TAC Squad List, in particular as a bottom aged player.

Keep up you hard work James and continue to do your best!
