Moss joins Jets as Merrick's first signing

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 15/05/2017

Ernie Merrick has made his first signing as Newcastle Jets coach, luring veteran goalkeeper Glen Moss from Wellington with a one-year A-League deal.

Moss, 34, played under Merrick at the Phoenix and Melbourne Victory and will link up with the Jets after New Zealand's Confederations Cup campaign.

He made 140 A-League appearances for the Phoenix over seven seasons and was 2015-16 player of the season.

Phoenix general manager David Dome says Moss goes with their blessing.

"Glen has been a model professional, both as a Phoenix player and as an All White. He was between the sticks in our very first A-League game and will always have a very special place in the heart of many Phoenix fans."

Moss is the fifth player to sign for Newcastle from a rival A-League club, following Roy O'Donovan (Central Coast), Mario Shabow (Western Sydney), Kosta Petratos (Perth) and Joe Marston-medal winner Daniel Georgievski (Melbourne Victory).
