Newcastle Jets sign Tessa Tamplin

Newcastle Jets are excited to announce that Tessa Tamplin has returned to the Club for the coming A-League Women’s season.

Tamplin, who can play at fullback or wing climbed through the Emerging Jets ranks to make her A-League debut in 2019 against Perth Glory.

Coach Ash Wilson is happy to have Tamplin back in Newcastle.

“I’m thrilled to be able to welcome Tessa back home to Newcastle and can’t wait to see the impact she has the potential to make on this competition. As a local product that came through the academy, Tessa takes so much pride in representing the Jets, representing her home and community and her work ethic as well as attitude reflects this and what Newcastle is about. We obviously missed Tessa last year, but we were so proud of the steps she was taking to gain valuable experiences.

Her time in Servette and playing in the Champions League has seen her grow even more as a player and I’m excited to be able to work with her again. When I’m looking at the physical characteristics I need players to have to enable us to play the way we want to play, Tessa has those in spades. She is fit, fast and explosive and likes to contribute to attacks which is what we want to see in the brand of football we want to play. I’m sure the fans are going to enjoy seeing her back in gold.”

Tamplin is over the moon to be back in her hometown.

“I’m excited to be back playing in my hometown with the Jets. I’ve missed it!

Spending time in Switzerland with Servette FC helped me grow both as a player and person and I’m looking to bring everything I’ve learned into the team and hopefully help in a positive way at the Jets this season under Ash.

I can’t wait to be back in the red and blue, or should I say gold now! #COYJ!”
