A-League: James extends contract, Wanderers loan move confirmed




Newcastle Jets can confirm that young shot-stopper, Noah James, has had his contract extended until 2022-23 season.

The 19-year-old local has been in the Jets program since he was 15 and has been on a scholarship with the first-grade side for the past two years.

The Club can also confirm that James has been loaned to the Western Sydney Wanderers for duration of the 2020-21 season.

Goalkeeping Coach, Chris Bowling said Noah was a young man with plenty of talent and was glade the club was able to extend his contract.

“It’s a great opportunity for Noah to continue his development and hopefully he will come back to us with more A-League experience.” Bowling said today.

“He is a talented prospect and needs game time which he is unlikely to get here due to the two experienced keepers we have at the moment.

“We look forward to watching his development throughout the course of the season.”

James, who got his first start for the club late last year, was excited to extend his contract in Newcastle.

“I’m happy to extend my contract with my Hometown Club, The Jets,” he said.

“At the same time i’m extremely excited to get a great opportunity to go out on loan and gain invaluable experience with The Wanderers.”
