PODCAST: Birighitti, Brennan, Zane & Jets Member David Keating


The 20th episode of ‘Boarding Pass’ – the Official Newcastle Jets Podcast in association with Media Partner NEW FM – has landed!

Press play on the embed above to join host Meredith Gibbs as we provide Jets Members and supporters with player and coach interviews, club news, and a match preview.

This week no less than four guests join Meredith on ‘Boarding Pass’.

Newcastle Jets custodian Mark Birighitti is on this week to discuss Monday’s match-up against Perth Glory in his home state of Western Australia. ‘Birraz’ will have family and friends in the stands as the Jets strive to leapfrog Kenny Lowe’s purple-whites on the Hyundai A-League standings at nib Stadium.

Birighitti also discusses the impact of the club’s goalkeeping coach Jess Vanstrattan on his performances this campaign and the pride he’ll feel on Monday when he walks out with his one-year-old nephew.


Andy Brennan also joins Meredith this week to discuss his football past and let supporters in on who is as a person. ‘Bowser’ discusses his music interests, reveals the song he sang as his initiation into the club, talks about his talented, gnarly brother, and says he’s capable on the keys of a piano.

What’s more, Clayton Zane picks up the phone to Gibbsy to talk through our youth team’s preparations for their PS4 National Premier League (Northern New South Wales) campaign.

And last but most certainly not least avid Jets Member and statistical guru David Keating chats with Meredith about why he keeps such detailed records on the club’s on-field fortunes, then shares some super stats about current and past Jets players and matches.
