Milligan lands with Jets

Former Sydney FC favourite Mark Milligan will join Newcastle Jets for seven weeks as a guest player from Round 11 of this A-League season and then permanently as of next season.

Milligan had trialled with several high-profile clubs in Europe, including Arsenal, Manchester City and Werder Bremen and was reported to be close to signing deals with FC Porto, Blackburn Rovers and more recently Greek club Iraklis.

However the Jets have secured his services for a seven week stint as a guest player from Round 11 and also as a squad member for the 2009/2010 A-League season.

The 23 year old can play anywhere across the defensive line or in the centre of midfield and Newcastle Head coach Gary van Egmond belives he will add great utility value to his squad.

“We’re delighted to have a player of Mark’s calibre joining our squad. I feel that he will add a significant amount to our playing group in regards to his ability and experience and he should slot straight into the team,” he said.

“It’s great to have Mark signed for now and next season also. It boosts our squad, not only in terms of personnel, but it gives a lift to those boys already here. I think it really shows our ambition as a club and that we’re serious about our title defence, and creating a strong squad into the future.”

“I’m looking forward to working with him for the duration of his time in Newcastle,” concluded van Egmond.

Milligan has been capped six times for the Socceroos and lead the Olyroos throughout their 2008 Beijing Olympics campaign.

Milligan will train with the team this afternoon and will be formally presented his playing jersey at a media conference tomorrow.



Joel Griffiths signs 3-year deal as Jets’ marquee

The Newcastle Jets have today re-signed striker Joel Griffiths on a 3-year contract that will see him become the club’s marquee player from next season.

Already a crowd favourite at the Newcastle, Griffiths has developed a loyal following which continues to grow. The elevation to Marquee status has Jets CEO John Tsatsimas very excited.

“It’s certainly a monumental moment for the club and for Joel. I’m pleased to announce that we have secured the services of such a fine player until the conclusion of the 2011/2012 season.”

“We believe that Joel is a superb ambassador for the sport and for this great city. He plays with pride, he plays with passion, and he wears his heart on his sleeve. That’s been the main reason that he has been so popular with our fans, and we are proud to have him as part of the Newcastle Jets well into the future,” he said.Tsatsimas also stated that the long-term signing of Griffiths will compliment the long-term deals signed last week by the club’s Head coach Gary van Egmond and Assistant coach Mark Jones.

“Hopefully this is a moment which becomes a platform which will ensure the long-term stability and success of our club. We have already achieved significant milestones in our history; making the A-League Finals in each of the first three seasons, and of course becoming Champions last season. We believe that this decision will see us continue on that path of success as we develop.”

“We, of course, wish nothing but the best for Joel and believe that he will continue on with the fine form that he has shown, particularly in recent years,” Mr. Tsatsimas said.
