Newcastle Jets are pleased to announce goalkeeper Claire Coelho has re-signed with the Club for the 2021/22 Westfield W-League season.
The 25-year-old Port Macquarie product has been part of the Jets’ W-League set-up since 2013.
With 34 W-League games to her name following 11 starts last season, Coelho is excited to have secured her future and build on last year.
“The club is moving in a positive direction, so to re-sign and be a part of this new chapter is exciting,” Coelho said.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to train with the Jets Academy boy’s teams this off-season and coming into my ninth W-League season, it’s helped me feel ready for the challenge ahead.”
W-League Coach Ash Wilson said, securing Coelho is an important part of her roster puzzle.
“Claire continues to prove herself in the W-League,” Wilson said.
“She has been an integral member of the Jets W League squad for a number of years and I'm looking forward to seeing her step up again this season.
“Her communication, bravery and shot stopping abilities will be important to this team coming into the 2021/22 season.”
