A YOUNG Jets fan has given Newcastle supporters an early taste of glory after winning a car on television on Thursday night.
Mayfield’s Snezana Lazevski said her son Nikoli, 10, was still elated on Friday morning after snatching a top left corner goal on Fox Sports Just For Kicks to win the family a Hyundai i30 on Thursday night.
The chance to take a shot during Nikolai’s first appearance in April was actually under his brother’s seat, but the Broadmeadow Magic Under 11s player took his chance when it was given to him.
He was invited back for the show’s grand final and, wearing a Newcastle Jets strip, delivered in style.
After running cross-country on Friday morning, he was taking the ball to show classmates in the afternoon. Ms Lazevski said the win still felt like a dream on Friday.
The family had discussed it and would keep the car, she said.
“He said I’ve got to have that car when I can drive,” Ms Lazevski said. “It’s too sentimental.”
