A-League grand final has Newcastle Jets ready to party as they take on Melbourne Victory
If interest in the A-League has been on the decline this year, someone clearly forgot to tell the people of Newcastle.
The story of their football team’s run from bottom of the ladder last season to a home grand final has captured the imagination of an entire town, a whole region.
On one reading, it has actually been propelled by it.
Much has changed in Newcastle since the days when heavy industry and mining, along with rugby league success, defined a robust local character.
But passion for football has remained a constant and it will have a glorious avenue for expression on Saturday when the Jets host Melbourne Victory for the big prize.
It won’t be the first time.
