The Newtown club has been in existence for more than 100 years, however many of their old-time supporters are expressing the opinion that perhaps 2019 was the greatest season, certainly the most exciting, in the history of the club.
They came from eighth place, qualified for the Canterbury Cup Grand Final, then in remarkable circumstances, snatched a last-ditch victory in a classic decider against Wentworthville
Not quite finished yet, the Jets backed up a week later against Queensland champs Redcliffe in a game to crown a National Champion, and again it came down to the last play of the game, Newtown winning with a memorable chip-chase try, set up by Billy Magoulias and scored by young gun Jackson Ferris.
In a generous donation, Scott Sorensen, the co-captain of the Jets during their amazing late season run, has made available his Grand Final jersey as a part of the Sharks Bushfire appeal auction.
The match-worn, and now signed, Jets jersey can be yours by going to the link and making a bid in our auction.
The captain’s jersey, from that all-conquering 2019 season, is a special piece of memorabilia for a Newtown Jets, or for that matter a Cronulla Sharks, fan to own.
In addition to Sorensen’s jersey, Josh Dugan’s unique Ant Man jersey from his days at the Dragons, a pair of Chad Townsend boots, Tommy Bishop’s Great Britain jersey from 1968, as well as a signed and framed Legends Jersey, are some of the other items up for auction.
And that’s without mentioning the Gavin Miller 1989 Dally M Forward of the Year trophy which has already attracted bids of over $2,500.
All proceeds will be targeted at a club, sporting organisation or community affected by the recent Bushfire crisis.
AUCTION CLOSED......Thanks to those who made a bid. Successful bidders will be contacted directly
