Jets fly to Toowoomba for their first trial of '17

KSS JETS' mission to climb the Wide Bay League will start in Toowoomba this weekend.

The Jets will take their Wide Bay League and second division team to games against South West Thunder, which is the first of at least three trial games.

Not only is this an opportunity for players to get back on the field and increase familiarity with several new faces, it marks the unofficial start of a season in which Phil Rimmer's men hope to improve their standing.

"It just to get a few games under our belt before the season,” Rimmer said.

"It is pretty hard to get guys to travel so we will lack a few names, but it's still a good opportunity for them to play.”

The Jets finished bottom of the Wide Bay League last season with only one win and two draws.

If their commitment to training is anything on which to judge, the Jets should have no problem improving that result.

"We've been getting 30-odd players to training for the last three-and-a-half weeks,” Rimmer said.

"We had one night where we were light-on but the rest have been great.

"We've got mostly the same squad as last year but there's a few new faces in there.”

KSS Jets are set to field teams in both the men's and women's Wide Bay League competitions, as well as the new Colts comp.

The Jets will play South West Thunder, new Wide Bay League side Bargara and Sunbury in their three trial matches.
