Ready to take off: Jets build towards a solid year

KAWUNGAN Sandy Straits Jets have opted to focus on what happens inside the club rather than what others might be doing.

That internal focus is one that puts each and every one of their players under the microscope and makes them fully accountable.

It is a style that will hopefully result in KSS being one of the stronger sides in this year's Three Cities League, and if last year is anything to go by it could be the recipe for future success.

KSS Jets spent the first half of the season working with each other, then vowed every result would be better in the second half.

"We didn't stumble once," coach Phil Rimmer said.

"We put the shockers up a few other clubs who thought we would go easy in the second round. Now they all know we're a club they need to be focused on when they come to play."

The Jets have picked up Chris Martelli and Adam Young from Fraser Flames, an acquisition that has developed depth in the senior teams.

FCAC are not entering a side in this year's Three Cities League and the top-quality pair wanted to continue playing at the highest level.

"They're obviously first division quality players," Rimmer said.

"They're going to provide good selection depth for me.

"Adam can play a number of positions and Chris is a striker so it's going to put good healthy competition for selection."

Their addition will not only make the Jets a more dangerous side on the field, but could ensure they remain a threat come the pointy end of the season.

"It gives us good depth for later in the season when there's foot injuries and red cards and things. You get to June and the clubs with a lot of depth are the ones who survive."

The Jets train every Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm.

The season starts on March 12.
