Jets re-sign proud Novocastrian

Central defender Taylor Regan has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal with his hometown club.

The Newcastle Jets are pleased to announce the re-signing of Taylor Regan for the next two seasons.

After debuting in Round 10 of the 2010/2011 season, Regan has been rewarded for his consistency this season with a 2-year contract.

The signing of Regan, a Dudley-Redhead junior, is further testament to the Newcastle Jets vision of nurturing local talent into Hyundai A-League stars.

“I am excited to have signed with the club for the next 2 years. Being a local boy from Dudley-Redhead I am really proud to be representing my home city,” Regan said.

Jets Chief Executive Officer John Tsatsimas said the club was pleased to see the former junior develop into a consistent Hyundai A-League performer.

“Taylor formed a key part of our youth team in 2009 and led the side by example as skipper. It is also great to see local Newcastle talent is forging a pathway into our Hyundai A-League squad and that he is playing the football that we know he is capable of,” Tsatsimas said.
