The Under 11s and 12s Kempsey Macleay Female Rep Football squads and their families were invited as guests of Football Mid North Coast and the Newcastle Jets to the double-header being played in Newcastle on Saturday November 30.
It would have been great if the whole two squads could have attended, but some had prior arrangements or were still dealing with bushfires.
Both games were exciting with the women losing a close game against Canberra 2-3 and the men winning 2-0 against the Western Sydney Warriors.
As an extra surprise, Football Mid North Coast organised the Macleay girls to meet the women's Jets team.
It was good to talk to local player Claire Coelho who grew up in from Port Macquarie. She is now the Women's Jets number one goal keeper.
The jets signed all the girls shirts and photographs were taken.
