Newcastle Jets

Newcastle JetsOne of just three teams from the old NSL to appear in the A-League, the Newcastle Jets won their first championship in 2007/08 after beating their great rivals, the Central Coast Mariners, 1-0 in the Grand Final.

The club has since found itself floating around the lower half of the competition and has come under severe financial strain a number of times.

After a poor 2015-16 campaign, in which the Jets finished comfortably outside the finals spots, the club was thrown into more turmoil, with coach Scott Miller sacked just a month out from the start of the 2016-17 campaign, and assistant coach Luciano Trani leaving just a day later. Newcastle’s next coach will be the club’s seventh in the past five season.

2015-16 season: 8th

2016-17 squad: Ben Kennedy, Jack Duncan, Daniel Mullen, Jason Hoffman, Nigel Boogaard, Ivan Vujica, Nick Cowburn, Daniel Alessi, Lachlan Jackson, Ben Kantarovski, Andrew Hoole, Steven Ugarkovic, Mateo Poljak, Wayne Brown, Mitch Cooper, Devante Clut, Labinot Haliti, Andy Brennan, Andrew Nabbout, Radovan Pavicevic, Morten Nordstrand.
