Jets cut Gallaway loose

The Newcastle Jets have agreed to mutually terminate the contract of defender Sam Gallaway, to allow the player to pursue an opportunity at an alternative club.

"Sam has been a fine servant of this club and we thank him for his contribution and wish him all the best in the next stage of his football career,” Jets Head Coach Phil Stubbins said.

Gallaway thanked the Newcastle Jets and the fans for their support during his time at the club.

“It has been a pleasure to play for the Jets and represent my home region of Northern NSW, I have enjoyed being part of the team and appreciate the support of the fans and everyone at the club.” Gallaway said.

Gallaway made 44 appearances for the Newcastle Jets after making his debut in 2011.
