Jets confirm young striker’s departure

Newcastle Jets have confirmed the club has finalised a mutual contract termination with 21-year-old attacker Radovan Pavicevic.

Pavicevic joined Jets Youth in 2013 from Marconi Stallions and progressed to a senior contract after winning the Jet’s Foxtel National Youth League Player of the Year Award.

Since his Hyundai A-League bow in January 2015 Pavicevic appeared for the Newcastle Jets first team 17 times.

The former Westfields Sports High student scored on his home debut against Brisbane Roar in February 2015 after coming on as a second half substitute.

“I enjoyed some great years at Newcastle Jets and would like to wish my teammates the best of luck for the rest of the season,” Pavicevic said.
