The Newcastle Jets have announced the signing of Matildas midfielder and local northern NSW product Emily van Egmond.
The Dudley junior will join the Jets for a four-game stint after finishing up her season with San Diego Wave in the National Women’s Soccer League.
Van Egmond will wear the number five jersey and is available to feature in this Sunday’s home clash against Melbourne City FC at No.2 Sports Ground.
The Jets Women’s side will be eager for the boost to their squad after picking up one win, a draw and two losses so far this season.
The midfielder has previously featured for her hometown A-League Women’s club, making 59 appearances since her debut in 2008. Van Egmond is an inaugural member of the Jet’s women’s side.
Newcastle Jet’s captain Cass Davis said the girls are thrilled to welcome the Matildas star to their side.
“The team and I are beyond excited to have Emily here with us for the next few games,” Davis said.
“She has had an extensive career so far at the highest level, with a lot of players including myself, look up to her. We’re looking forward to playing with her and learning from her.
“I believe that we have a number of talented young players in this squad and by having someone of Emily’s stature involved in the team it will only benefit their development this season.”
Newcastle Jets Executive Chairman Shane Mattiske is delighted with the return of van Egmond.
“We’re extremely excited to bring back one of our own in Emily van Egmond to the club for a guest stint,” Mattiske said.
“We’re looking forward to having her here and around the team to help guide the younger players within the team and we look forward to seeing her run out this weekend at No.2 Sportsground against Melbourne City.”
