Going back to the future


New signings: from left - Brooklyn Williamson, Zozia Sen and Sarah Evans

STRONG links to Moreton Bay United have helped Jets’ women’s coach Ben Fuhrmann complete three more signings for 2020.

Zozia Sen, Brooklyn Williamson and Sarah Evans have followed Jemima Head in putting pen to paper for next season.

“All three have ties to the Jets,” said Ben, “Sarah transitioning to the senior ranks after being with the 18s last season, while Zozia and Brooklyn return to where their NPLW journey started. “After discussing our vision for Jets going forward, they definitely wanted to be a part of it. “They realise what we are trying to do here is not just a 12-month project.

"This is about building a sustainable model for players to remain here and progress through the ranks - and with the bulk of the 2020 Under 18s eligible to play seniors in 2021.

“It's up to us to lay that platform for the younger footballers coming through. We’ll start from scratch and need players who want to buy into that. These three have that desire to do so.”

Zozia Sen is back where her NPL career started as a Jets ' foundation player in 2013 at the age of 15. She was part of Jets’ first senior women’s side in 2015 and has been in the NPLW ever since, last season playing with Mitchelton.

The 21 year old can play anywhere up front or at fullback and said she “can’t wait to get back in those (Jets) colours for the 2020 season.

“I agree with what Ben has set out to achieve and wanted to come back to where I first played NPL,” said Zozia, who wants to develop her game and "do whatever the team needs me to.”

Brooklyn Williamson, is also returning to Jets, having played for Mitchelton Under 18s last season in the NPL.

“I wanted to return to where I began at the NPL level,” said the 18-year-old central defender.

“After contact with Ben I was excited to be part of the new direction the club is heading with their senior team.”

Sarah Evans moved down to Brisbane from Townsville at the start of this year playing for Jets Under 18s, while at university. In Townsville the defender spent five seasons at North Queensland Fury and a year with Brothers.

“I like the philosophy and community atmosphere here,” Sarah, 18, said, “and the great vision for building a sustainable, quality team.

“The club was very supportive when I moved down. Now I want to improve technically as a player and work hard to meet the skill level in the NPLW.”
