Jets address training incident

Mark Birighitti and Taylor Regan met with Club officials following a training ground incident at Ray Watt Oval on Monday.

Hunter Ports Newcastle Jets players Mark Birighitti and Taylor Regan met with Club officials following a training ground incident at Ray Watt Oval on Monday morning.

Jets CEO Robbie Middleby said the pair have put the incident behind them to focus on Saturday-s F3 Derby against the Central Coast Mariners at Bluetongue Stadium.

“You want your players to have a competitive nature and show passion on the field because that-s a key ingredient for success in any sport,” Middleby said.

“However, it-s important they don-t cross the line and let their emotions get the better of them.

“As a Club, we-ve spoken to both Mark and Taylor about the incident and have dealt with the matter internally.”
