Jordan Loy stamped his mark on Jets’ pre-season within 90 minutes of returning.
The defender, who played 16 times for Jets in 2017, is back after two seasons in the QPL just down South Pine Road at Mitchelton.
It was there he “learned how to score goals” and proved it with a long-range cracker in last weekend’s 3-0 victory over Coomera.
Quite a springboard to launch into round two of the Inter City Cup on Saturday when Jets face Brisbane City at Rochedale, kick-off 2.30pm.
“I played as a number 10 last year and scored a few times,” said Jordan, who struck four times in 19 games for Mitchy.
“It was good to get that into my repertoire and be more versatile.
“I played left back last time I was here, but right back on Sunday when I scored. I think (coach) Royce (Brownlie) is happy to play me anywhere along the back line.
“To be honest, those are my better positions … left back, right back, in the centre, but I’ll play anywhere I’m asked to.”
Jordan, who also played NPL at Brisbane City (2013-14) and Sunshine Coast (2016), has come back to Jets to “prove to myself I can still play at this level and play quality football”.
“It’s been good so far” he said, “we’ve got a good young team and keeping up with the young lads.
"Being a couple of years older I think I’m one of the senior boys now!
“I’m definitely getting fitter every session. Royce is pushing me on that, which I like. It’s now a matter of getting fit.
“I think we will surprise a few teams this year and I hope we can push for the top four. We can certainly play, from what I’ve seen so far.
“It’s a good start but, there’s plenty of room for improvement.”
