Earlier today, Newcastle Jets announced the signing of American forward Murphy Agnew for the A-League Women season.
Murphy joins the Jets after recently playing in Iceland with Thróttur Reykjavík after coming through the US college system.
Newcastle Jets Coach Ash Wilson was understandably thrilled to capture the American forward: “Murphy is someone who comes to us having had successful college experience in the US as well as a season in Iceland. She has so many attributes we believe will contribute positively to our environment and the performances we are looking to put in that reflect the town and what it means to play for Newcastle.
Wilson expanded on the qualities that Agnew will bring to the Jets: “She is versatile, has a great work rate, and likes to play forward and involve herself in attacking movements. She has the capacity to score goals and break teams down with her ability to run with the ball in space but will be tireless in defence as well. She is a quality person who will bring a lot to the change-room, pitch, and community and I’m looking forward to having her join us.”
Agnew outlined her own thoughts about her first season in the A-League Women with Newcastle Jets.
“I’m very happy to have signed for the Jets and I’m excited to use this opportunity to help the team and grow as a player on and off the field.
“I’m looking forward to being part of a hard-working community and being able to play with an awesome group of girls. It’s shaping up to be an intense, competitive season and I can’t wait to get started.”
