CLUB STATEMENT: Newcastle Jets part ways with Mark Jones


Newcastle Jets can advise that the Club has today parted ways with Head Coach Mark Jones, effective immediately.

Jones was appointed as Head Coach of the Club in September 2016, however after finishing bottom of the Hyundai A-League standings this campaign the Club’s ownership and senior management will make a fresh appointment for the 2017/18 season.

The Club will commence its 2017 pre-season in late June. It is intended that a new Head Coach will be in place before this time.

Currently no changes have been made to the Club’s other coaching and football support staff.

Senior Assistant Coach Clayton Zane will oversee training over the coming weeks before the playing group breaks for their annual leave in early May.

The Club thanks Jones for his efforts throughout the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season and wishes him well for the future.
