Emma Dundas Re-Signs

The Newcastle Jets are delighted to announce that homegrown midfielder Emma Dundas has re-signed with the club for a further two seasons.

The 17-year-old made her debut in Round One of the Liberty A-League this season against rivals the Central Coast Mariners and has so far made 22 appearances for the club, scoring one goal.

Dundas has risen through the club’s academy system and is another homegrown product to make the leap into first grade football. Dundas was also recently called up to the Junior Matildas squad for the AFC U17 Women’s Asian Cup in Indonesia and more recently, the Young Matildas (U20) squad for their upcoming friendlies against New Zealand.

Dundas said. “I’m really happy to be able to re-sign for my hometown team. This season has been so surreal from making my debut in Round one against the Mariners to playing finals football with this great group of girls.

This is the best place for me to play my football. I’m looking forward to continue growing as a player and I’m excited for what is to come for this team.”

Newcastle Jets Coach Ryan Campbell said.

“Emma is an example of the type of player that we are looking to develop at the Newcastle Jets. She is a home grown player who has worked hard through our Academy to earn the chance to play for the Club at the highest level.

I am looking forward to working with her more to help her to get as much experience as possible in order to take her game to as far as she wants it to go.”
