Why Scott's "absolutely loving it"

Game time so important for new keeper


JETS’ keeper Bon Scott says he is “loving” being back in regular match action.

The highly-rated 18 year old is on a match-to-match deal as cover for injured Matt Stein and will be in goal for Saturday’s visit of Redlands.

He has played the last three games, against Northern Fury, Brisbane City and Roar Youth, after returning from trials with Premier League sides in England.


It was a great experience, but Scott had little game time, which has made his appearances for Jets so special.


“It’s great to be back out there. I’m loving it, absolutely loving it," said Scott.

“I thought the first two games (Northern Fury won 3-1 and 1-1 with Brisbane City) were okay. Last week (lost 4-1 at Roar Youth) was just one of those days.

“I’ve analysed that game and moved on. I cannot do anything about that now.

“I think our performances have been there, we just need a few goals to turn things around.”

Scott has experience which belies his years having spent five months training with EPL sides Crystal Palace and Watford.


And the former Western Pride and Newcastle Jets youth team player plans to go back overseas to pursue his career.

When he does, Scott, who was invited to a Young Socceroos training camp last year, will leave knowing the PlayStation 4 NPL Queensland is going from strength to strength.

“Every year the competition is stepping up,” he said, “it’s getting more professional, since its inception to now, even last season to now.

“Most clubs are ooking to promote young players and I think that's the right thing to do.”

Jets take on high-flying Redlands at Wolter Park on Saturday, kick-off 6pm.
