ARGENTINIAN striker Jeronimo Neumann's spectacular debut for the Newcastle Jets reaped rewards for the A-League side in a friendly match against the Weston Bears.

The 28-year-old, who was turned away by Adelaide United, scored four goals for the Jets at Bear Park last Wednesday to help the team steal an 8-1 victory.

Neumann said he felt more comfortable on the team, instantly settling into formation with strike partner Joel Griffiths.

Jets coach Phil Stubbins was impressed with Neumann's effort, saying it was a good effort for him.

The Jets were gearing up to take on Perth Glory at Magic Park, Broadmeadow, on Tuesday as The Star went to print.
