NEWCASTLE Jets land in Tamworth today with a special coaching clinic at the Gipps Street Ovals for Hillvue Rovers Football Club.
Young Rovers junior Joshua Paul won a Northern NSW Football competition to host the clinic.
It will be part of a promotional weekend for the Jets, who play Central Coast Mariners in an A League trial at Scully Park tomorrow.
The Jets and Mariners have been invited to tonight’s Northern Inland Football Premier League presentation night at the Tamworth Jockey Club.
Tamworth FC will be presented with its second successive first grade PL trophy while North Companions receive the second grade PL premiership trophy.
