NEWCASTLE-BRED SOCCEROO PASSES AWAY

Former Newcastle Breakers and Socceroos’ player Darren Stewart has passed away, aged 52.

Stewart played 23 games for the Breakers during the early 1990s, along with three games for the national side.

He was also successful in Asia, becoming the first Australian to win the Malaysia FA Cup in 1998, before moving into sports management.

The Jets will wear black armbands in memory of the defender in their round one clash this weekend.
