The 14th 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 supporters with player and coach interviews, club news, and a match preview.

In this week’s episode Meredith chats exclusively with Newcastle Jets attacker Ryan Kitto. Meredith and Ryan discuss Kitto’s career to date, how he’s enjoying his time as a Jet, plus how the club’s coaches and players are helping him hone his game.

In the laid back part of the chat, Ryan reveals which Real Madrid player he admires most, what song he sung at Criniti’s for his team initiation, plus his passion for taking walks along Newcastle’s idyllic beaches.

Also this week Meredith checks in with the club’s Foxtel National Youth League Head Coach Clayton Zane. ‘Clacka’ reviews the club’s FNYL campaign which ended last weekend with a 3-2 win over Central Coast Mariners Youth, and shares plenty of insights regarding the club’s current youth pathway.

There’s also a chat with former Newcastle Breakers and Newcastle United marksman Andy Harper – a man who now dedicates much of his time these days to commentary and punditry with Fox Sports Football. ‘Harps’ gives his synopsis of the Jets on and off the field so far this season, and shares some of his memories of and vision for football in the region.

And last but most certainly not least Meredith chats with the club’s Westfield W-League Head Coach Craig Deans. ‘Deansy’ explains who some of his ‘little gems’ were this campaign, admits he was pleasantly shocked by the girls’ talent, teamwork and dedication when he took the job, and says that he’d love to return to the role next season to try and get Jets Women “in the finals and make them a powerful team”.
