Statement from Nathan Tinkler

It is with great delight that I find myself as part of your club, your family, your Newcastle Jets.

It is with great delight that I find myself as part of your club, your family, your Newcastle Jets.

The Newcastle Jets is the football flagship for Newcastle and the Hunter region. It is a club that has achieved significant success in a short period of time. It is a club that has competed in four out of five A-League final series and is the only club outside of Sydney and Melbourne to have won the A-League.

The Newcastle Jets is a club that is about to experience significant change. While success in football is measured by our on field success, we want to create a brand that is successful off the field as well. The key to this success will be focused upon our relationships with the people in our community.

The Newcastle Jets are passionate about football and the football family, players and supporters. A family that is passionate about being successful - on and off the field. The Jets are inclusive of Newcastle, the Hunter and Northern NSW. We are a community club and all are welcome whether it be as a member of the Squadron, a corporate member, a Northern NSW Federation registered player, a mum, a dad, a family or a visitor to our beautiful city.

This is a brand new start, a rebirth of our club, a start that includes you.

I look forward to all of us being a part of the Newcastle Jets family.
