W-League: van Egmond returns for Round 4


The Newcastle Jets will welcome back captain, Emily van Egmond for their Round 4 trip to Western Sydney to face the Wanderers.

Craig Deans was without a trio of experience last week as van Egmond, Crummer and Andrews missed his side’s first win of the season over Canberra United.

Crummer and Andrews will miss once again – though the former is inching closer to return – but as with van Egmond the week prior, Deans will not be taking a risk on one of his marquee signings.

Hannah Brewer will again pair with the experienced Cass Davis in the centre of defence, following her first game of the season.

Veteran defender, Gema Simon has recovered well from a busy period with the Matildas, backing up on a short turnaround to wear the captain’s armband last Saturday.
