PODCAST: Boarding Pass – RAAF Round Edition


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

Join host Meredith Gibbs again this week as we provide Jets Members and fans with player and coach interviews, club news, and a match preview.

In this week’s episode Meredith chats extensively with in form Newcastle Jets goalkeeper Mark Birighitti.

While Birighitti discusses a range of topics, he tells a stunning tale from before he went to trial with German club Bayer Leverkusen.

Turns out Leverkusen’s former coach Sami Hyppiä called his former Liverpool teammate and Jets striker Emile Heskey while Birighitti was in the car with him to ask about him in 2014.

There are interviews with Air Commodore Steve ‘Zed’ Roberton from RAAF Base Williamtown, Jets great Matt Thompson, plus Gibbsy checks in with Labinot Haliti to see how he’s progressing in his rehabilitation from knee injury.

To get set for this Saturday’s RAAF Base Williamtown round between Newcastle Jets and Brisbane Roar at Hunter Stadium you had better grab your ‘Boarding Pass’!
