Another Jets player with a point to prove after being cut at the end of the 2017/18 season, Mitch Austin is a former Melbourne Victory and Central Coast Mariners attacker who has overcome injury to get this far.
An extended trial period in Newcastle saw Austin do enough to earn himself a contract, and Jets fans will be looking forward to Austin providing a point of difference on the edge of attack.
With nine goals from typically wide positions in 47 Hyundai A-League matches, Austin has a lot to add to the Newcastle Jets squad.
