Newcastle Jets have announced overnight that they have secured key players Tara Andrews and Hannah Brewer once more for the new W-League campaign.

Andrews, Newcastle born, has played 104 games in the W-League, scoring 40 goals including five last season.

At 27, she is eager to get back on the pitch and adding to her goal scoring tally next season.

“I’m really excited to be joining the Jets again for this season, it’s my hometown club and I love playing in front of my family and friends,” Andrews said.

“Last year, we didn’t do as well as we hoped. So, I’m excited to see the team we put together and I believe we can be successful this season.

“I’d love to be able to make the semis again and build on my own performances and of course, try to score lots of goals.”

Coach Ash Wilson said; “I’m very happy to have Tara back for another season. She is a proven goal scorer, bringing a variety of attacking threats through her technically ability, vision and desire to score goals.

“In addition to this, she is someone who has such passion for this team. It’s rare in the W-League to play over 100 games and she has done it with one club.

“That commitment and drive to make the team the best it can be, will be important, as we look to make finals again.”

Hannah Brewer is also back for another season in blue and red. Part of the inaugural W-League season in 2008 at the age of 15, she has developed into one of the competition’s best right sided defenders.

“This season, I believe is our season to really showcase our real potential,” Brewer said.

“A lot of blood, sweat and tears are shared throughout a season and that’s what really makes a team. I can’t wait to share all these experiences with the girls this year and see where the season takes us. 

“I was fortunate enough at 15, to start my career with the Jets and I am excited to continue the journey playing for and representing this amazing club and city.” 

Brewer is a key signing for coach Ash Wilson’s squad for the upcoming campaign.

“Hannah has been an invaluable member of this Jets team for years,” Wilson said.

“Anyone who has ever watched her play, knows she leaves everything on the field which is reflective of the mentality and the values we strive to promote in our players.

“Defensively, her experience and aggression will be important, however I also expect younger players and players new to the team will be positively influenced by her passion and attitude.”
