A-League: Jackson to miss indefinite period

Newcastle Jets can confirm that Lachlan Jackson suffered a serious knee injury in last Friday’s fixture away to Wellington Phoenix.

Jackson turned awkwardly in the turf midway through the first half, with scans in the following days confirming a rupture to his ACL, and tears to both his lateral meniscus and medial ligament.

The defender will now undergo reconstructive surgery and is set to miss an indefinite period.

Everyone at the Newcastle Jets wishes Lachy the very best in his recovery, and we can’t wait to see you back out on the park.
