Furns (@SquadronNewy) from The Jetstream (@JetstreamNewy) is joined again by @NewcastleJetsFC CEO @LawrieMckinna ahead of the @ALeague restart
A week out from the season resuming we thought it time to get some up to date info on the goings on around the Jets. So Lawrie joined us to answer questions on the @FFA and @ALeague regarding the Melbourne teams, salary cap, new broadcast deal with Fox and the season switching to winter. He then chats about the team training and how the COVID restrictions are affecting the normal running of the club. He also provides an update on the @WLeague and a question regarding using No. 2 Sportsground more often.
He then provides some updates on player contracts and the financial health of the Jets before addressing the current news around Martin Lee, the state of the sale of the club and the potential new owner. Lawrie then talks about the upcoming games and the possibilities of tickets for members and the public before finishing off answering some general fan questions and which players are looking good for the first game back away to @SydneyFC
