Lucas Mauragis Re-Signs with the Newcastle Jets

The Newcastle Jets are pleased to announce the re-signing of left-back Lucas Mauragis for the next two seasons. 

Mauragis will subsequently join the Wellington Phoenix on loan immediately for the 2022-2023 season.

Canberra born Mauragis has progressed into the first team since joining the club in 2018 and Manager Arthur Papas believes the re-signing of Mauragis is an important one for the club.

“Re-signing Lucas on a multi-year deal is an important one for the future and provides a platform for the club to put in place a strategy to further develop him. 

Hence, we have agreed to loan Lucas for the upcoming season to Wellington Phoenix. As we are the only A-League club without a youth team that plays in what I consider to be a competitive NPL competition, the risk of Lucas not being exposed to consistent minutes when not part of the matchday squad can possibly be navigated this way and ensure the long-term benefit remains with the Newcastle Jets.”
