Garth Russell supports Newcastle Jets...Date published: 17/04/2003. Sting once sang about how hard it is for an Englishman in New York, Garth Russell found it harder to be a Newcastle Jets supporter on the Central Coast on this day. His mission was simple: fly the Jets flag, wear the team stripes in the Mariners heartland, and see what happened. "The Central Coast people seemed nice, despite the fact we're essentially at war with them. But if the ancient mariner can handle an annoying albatross, I'm confident he couldn't shoot down a jet"...Garth Russell
