The Hunter Ports Newcastle Jets have today made the decision not to sign Scottish trialist Mark Burchill.

Burchill-s week-long trial with the Jets finished today following an intra-club trial match at Hunter Valley Grammar School.

“We would like to thank Mark for showing his interest in the Club and coming out to Newcastle for a trial with the Jets,” CEO Robbie Middleby said.

“We wish him all the best for his future as he pursues opportunities elsewhere.”

Middleby said the Jets are continuing their search for a player to bolster their line-up in the front third of the pitch.

“We-re very happy with the squad we-ve assembled up to this point,” Middleby said.

“We-re keeping our options open as we look for another attacking player who is going to be a good fit for the Club both on and off the field.”
