Newcastle Jets sign Josie Allan to scholarship deal

Newcastle Jets are delighted to announce the signing of Josie Allan for the coming A-League Women’s season on a scholarship deal.

Allan, who plays as an attacker, joins the Jets after coming through the club’s Academy.

Newcastle Jets coach Ash Wilson is pleased to have Allan on board for the coming season.

“Josie is an exciting academy product who we believe has a clear future pathway aligned to our A-League club and the potential for success beyond that. She is only 16 but has a great attitude, is quick, dynamic and has spark in the way she plays.

Regardless of the situation, she is in, Josie plays with confidence beyond her years and backs herself.  We see the potential, and while there is still a lot of growth and learning for Josie as a player and athlete, it is important for us to support her and challenge her so that she can reach that potential as well as contribute positively to the future of our club and team.”

Allan is looking forward to the season ahead of further developing her game at the Newcastle Jets.

“I’m very excited to be joining the team this season after coming through the Jets Academy. The team and the coaching staff have been great to me so far in helping me ease into the team environment. I’m looking forward to taking my game to the next level this season and it will be amazing to make my debut for the club.”
