LEWIS ITALIANO SIGNS A ONE YEAR DEAL WITH NEWCASTLE

It’s been on the cards for a few weeks, but today the Jets formally announced the signing of keeper Lewis Italiano on a one year deal. During five seasons with Wellington, Italiano made 19 appearances in goals. The 27-year-old has spent time as the back up to former Phoenix and current Newcastle keeper, Glen Moss, while also being coached by Ernie Merrick. “I’ve known Ernie, signed me at Wellington, obviously worked under Mossy so yeah I think they can bring the best out of me and I can definitely help them.” Italiano is likely to play his first official game for the Jets this Saturday against the Western Sydney Wanderers at Maitland’s Number One Sportsground at midday.

Overnight leader Dale Brandt-Richards stumbled on day two, carding a 77 to drop to 19th. It was a similar story for Aaron Townsend, Callan O’Reilly and Nick Flanagan, who all dropped out of the top 10. But none of those golfers struggled quite as much as our very own Samuel Djodan, who’s potentially still looking for his ball after his tee shot on 16.
