After signing with the Newcastle Jets late last week, English striker Emile Heskey arrives in the country on Friday.

Heskey is scheduled to land at Sydney Airport at 6.05am and will be greeted by CEO Robbie Middleby and friend Michael Bridges.

He will then attend the Jets session at Hunter Stadium on Friday afternoon and meet his new teammates and the coaching staff. Following a meeting with the coaching staff will determine what training he will do.

Hunter Stadium has a third party booking and for that reason, it is unfortunately a closed session to the public.

Heskey's first training session for Members and supporters to attend will be on Tuesday afternoon at Ray Watt Oval. The session will commence at approximately 4.30pm. The Jets also train on Wednesday morning, and Members and fans can attend that session at Ray Watt Oval also, from 10am.

Heskey merchandise is available both ONLINE and at the Hunter Sports Superstore at 294 Turton Road, New Lambton. Stock has not sold out.
