Westfield W-League | Emerging Jet Takes Flight Into Big Leagues

November 23rd, 2016

Newcastle Jets Westfield W-League Head Coach Craig Deans has announced the signing of 15 year old Emerging Jets keeper, Annalee Grove, as an injury replacement for US import Kelsey Wys, whose season came to an abrupt end on the weekend against Perth Glory after an ACL injury.

Signing a two week contract, Grove will travel with the team to Canberra for this weekend’s fixture providing back up for Jets’ Claire Coelho.

Grove’s selection is testimony to the success of the Emerging Jets program in developing young talent, with Grove having come to Deans attention in the program where she was in the first intake of female players on its launch in 2013.

Deans said Annalee has been attending training with the W-League team since last season and believes she is growing into a mature player.

“It’s a good opportunity for her to see what is required of a player at this level,’ he said.

“She’s got a short period of time to get as much out of the experience as she can,” Deans concluded.

Grove has also had the opportunity to be involved in both of the Junior and Young Matilda’s squads this year, attending high level training camps for both squads.
