Bridges on leave for family matters

Michael Bridges will take personal leave from the Club and return to England to be with his family.

Newcastle Jets forward Michael Bridges will take personal leave from the Club and return to England to be with his family.

“The Club have been kind enough to let me go home to be with my family,” Bridges said.

“When you have family matters and you are this far away from home, it can be difficult.

“So I will head back to England this weekend, just to be there for my Dad and the rest of the family.”

The Jets' best wishes are with Bridges and his family.

Meanwhile for his teammates, they have a three day break before returning on Monday August 6. The Jets next trial game is against NNSW Select on Wednesday August 8 at Adamstown Oval.
