Newcastle Jets sign American Sarah Griffith

Newcastle Jets are excited to announce the signing of American Sarah Griffith for the upcoming A-League season.

Griffith joins the Newcastle Jets from National Women’s Soccer League side Chicago Red Stars in the United States. Griffith can play as a winger, attacking midfielder or striker.

Newcastle Jets Coach Ash Wilson is pleased to have secured Griffith and is excited about what the American can bring to the Jets.

“I’m excited for Sarah to be finally joining our squad. She is coming to us from Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL where she played in her rookie season after a successful College campaign with Purdue University. Her attitude, work ethic and quality with the ball were key aspects we looked at when deciding she was someone we really wanted to bring into our environment.

Sarah is a player who is hard working, versatile and has a capacity to score goals. She has great drive and motivation and I know she is going to bring a lot to the team both on and off the pitch with her mentality, resilience and character and I am looking forward to working with her.”

Griffith is looking forward to the season ahead with the Jets.

“I am super excited and honoured to be a Newcastle Jet for this upcoming season. Having met the girls and staff already, I can tell how unified and welcoming this group is. I am excited to get to work and give everything I have for this club.”
