Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With last Sunday’s match postponed, we conclude 2019 at JET.

It’s been a largely disappointing year in terms of results, but we have to be thankful that the club is still running having acquired a number of players over the summer.

JET has recorded three wins in all competitions this season and has a semi-final to look forward to in the new year, as well as over half of the league’s fixtures.

But for now, we rest up, and wish everyone associated with JET FC a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

A further shoutout to Grant Robinson, who came agonisingly close to winning Players’ Player by one vote.

Further acknowledgements go to Max O’Neill, Robert Padbury, Jamie Stroud, Richard Buckle, and Geoff Broughton who helped run the club over a tricky season.

We go again this year, boys!

New home for JET Vets

JET Veterans will now play their home matches at Abingdon Town’s ground.

The Vets, who were playing in Didcot last season, will have access to floodlights, a substantial car park, bar, and food, as well as local pubs to celebrate their many victories.

If you’re 35 years old or above and looking to play competitive football on Wednesday evenings, why not join the good bunch of lads at JET Vets?

JET Hierarchy Change

Sky Sports have confirmed that defender Jamie Stroud has taken over the joint-management role alongside Max O’Neill with immediate effect.

Jay has taken over Robert Padbury, who will remain playing for JET after a season in charge. We thank him for his assistance during the last campaign and hope Stroud can hit the ground running.
