After going down 6-0 to a rampant Blue Eagles in Round 2, the Jets travel to Polonia Park on Saturday 28 February to take on reigning Premier League champions Croydon Kings, with kickoff at 7:00pm. In contrast to the Jets disappointing start to the season, Croydon sit joint top of the ladder with two wins from two. While under no illusion about the difficulty of this fixture so early in the season Modbury will be looking for a result and, more importantly, to put a solid performance and show continued improvement from the opening rounds. Read a preview of the match on the National Premier Leagues website.
Croydon is another side that we haven’t played in a competitive fixture since our last stint in the top flight (the then Super League) in 2011. During that season, we lost 2-0 away in the opening round, and beat Croydon 2-1 at home.
U18’s: 3:00pm, Reserves: 5:00pm
