Biography

6. A player with strong Croatian roots, midfielder Steven Ugarkovic has worked tirelessly to secure his place in the centre of a talented Newcastle Jets midfield.

After joining the club in the middle of the 2015/16 season, Ugarkovic and Ben Kantarovski carved out a fantastic partnership in the middle of the park which has been the backbone to much of the Jets’ strength in attack.

The highlight of his time so far with the Newcastle Jets so far has been the goal which secured the Jets’ their first win in Gosford in nearly 3000 days. Ugarkovic scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over the Mariners in February 2016.

Ugarkovic’s first appearance for the Newcastle Jets was on 31 January 2016, in a 1-0 loss to Adelaide United.
