Newcastle Jets sign Matildas representative Alex Huynh

The Newcastle Jets are pleased to announce the signing of Matildas representative Alex Huynh for the 2023/24 A-League Women’s season.

Huynh who plays as a defender is currently competing with Macarthur Rams in the NSW NPL. She started her career playing for Marconi Stallions in the NPL and has previously represented the Jets from 2010-2012. Huynh joined the Western Sydney Wanderers for the 2012/2013 campaign before heading over to the USA in 2013 to play for Colorado Buffaloes and Troy Trojans.

The former Marconi junior tested herself overseas in 2020 by playing for Napoli Femminile in Italy before moving to Denmark and signing for Fortuna Hjørring in 2021. It was during this time that Huynh was called up to the Matildas for a friendly match against Germany where she featured in the match.

Huynh is excited to return to the club where she made her A-League debut.

“I’m excited to return to Newcastle and represent this great region once again. This is where my career started and I want to give back to this Club.”
