FRUSTRATED coach Ernie Merrick conceded that the Newcastle Jets do not have the budget to bring in another goal-scorer and hopes the impending return of Joey Champness will help provide a lift for the struggling outfit.

Champness scored from outside the box in his return from a broken foot as the Jets gave up a late goal to go down 3-2 to Sydney FC in the national youth league game at Lambert Park on Saturday.

The winger, who was a finalist for the A-League’s young player of the year last season, adds a different dimension to the Jets attack with his speed and power.

He was used mainly as an impact player last season, scoring five goals, and is likely to be on the bench for the match against Sydney FC at Jubilee Oval on Saturday.

What a waste of a great talent. Has all the potential as a footballer. Always thought he looked promising when I saw him play for the Jets.

I'm sure he has talent in music but it's one of the toughest professions to crack, having a career in music (especially in NZ/AUS).

He hasn't even charted a song afaik. It is a brave move, I wish him all the best in chasing his dream. Does mean he misses out on playing the Olympics for Aussie. Arnie is in charge of that team and he tends to hold a grudge, so maybe opens the door up for a switch to NZ if he returns to football.

True story, Callum Hood was a promising Australian football player and at 17 years old he came back from a fully funded academy tour to Brazil and announced that he was giving up football to concentrate on his music. Within 12 months he and his band, 5 Seconds of Summer were touring with One Direction and are now the best selling Australian band of all time.

That's quite a feet considering ACDC sold 200+ million albums and Back in Black alone is one of the biggest selling albums of all time. Silverchair sold around 10 million albums, Savage Garden 23 million albums.

Had a look at Wikipedia and 5 seconds of summer 3.5 million odd albums, which is obviously a huge achievement but quite far from being one of the biggest selling Australian bands of all time. Still, it would seem he made the right decision - it's still a risk, I'd imagine there's less people making a living off of music than off of football.

Sounds like he is already making some positive moves so good on him.
