Australian Football: Regan hints at retirement

Newcastle Jets defender Taylor Regan has hinted that he could be ready to hang up his boots at the end of the A-League season.

Regan is currently in his second spell with the Jets and has made eight appearances since returning to Australia ahead of the 2021/22 A-League campaign.

Western draw

The 33-year-old has yet to make an official announcement but hinted after Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw with Western United that is could be time to call it a day.

Regan was speaking to broadcaster Paramount Plus after he put in a solid display in the heart of the Jets defence. Saturday’s trip to the Central Coast Mariners could now be his last game in football.

Meanwhile Jets boss Arthur Papas saluted the performance of his players as they fought out the draw against a Western side fighting for the minor premiership.

The Jets squad was ravaged through injury, illness and suspension but still managed to grind out a point as Jordan Elsey’s cancelled out Adisu Bayew’s opener for Western.

Papas praise

"Outstanding effort to be honest," he said. "We had eight players out, we had probably 10 on the field who literally have been stuck in bed all day.

"To see that kind of performance with one day less turnaround compared to them as well and how strong we finished that game, I couldn't be more proud of that group of players today."

The Jets have made great strides under Papas this season at sit ninth on the ladder ahead of the final game.
