Newcastle Jets sign goalkeeper Kiara Rochaix

The Newcastle Jets are pleased to announce the signing of goalkeeper Kiara Rochaix for the 2023/24 A-League Women’s season.

Rochaix joins the club from NSW NPL side Blacktown City FC where she recently won the player of the season award in 2022.

Originally from Bowral in the Southern Highlands, Rochaix also has playing experience in England with Woking FC as well as Macarthur Rams.

The goalkeeper has previously represented the Australian Schoolgirls in 2017 and 2018.

Rochaix is excited at the chance to join the Jets for the following season.

“I’m honoured to have signed for Newcastle Jets, and look forward to working with Gary van Egmond, his coaching staff, and my new teammates. I’m excited for this new chapter and challenge, and helping to contribute to a successful season for the club.

After the huge success of the Matildas and the women’s World Cup, I think this could be a huge season for women’s football in Australia. I look forward to being a part of it and I just can’t wait to get started.”
