Newcastle Jets today announced the re-signing of promising defender Taylor Regan.
The 22-year old centre-half has signed a fresh two-year deal with the Jets, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2012/13 A-League season.
Regan debuted in Week 10 of the current season and has since made nine starts, impressing in his role alongside Nikolai Topor-Stanley.
A Dudley Redhead junior, Regan was delighted to commit himself to his home club.
“I am excited to have signed with the club for the next 2 years. Being a local boy from Dudley Redhead I am really proud to be representing my home City,” Regan said.
Jets CEO John Tsatsimas added: “Taylor formed a key part of our youth team in 2009 and led the side by example as skipper. It is also great to see local Newcastle talent is forging a pathway into our A-League squad and that he is playing the football that we know he is capable of.”
