By my reckoning, the Jest have 7 visa players and more than 23 squad members. Anyone on here know how the f*ck that is allowed to happen?

Unless I am mistaken, their visa players are:
Burns
Sheppard
Arroyo
O’Donovan
Hoolahan
Ledley
Ridenton

I would therefore love to know how they have done all this within the rules of the competition, not that CCM would ever even come close to do anything similar of course.

There was talk Ridenton was getting the boot but it hasn’t been made public if he has. Ledley might be on a guest contract, are they exempt? That would get them under the limits afaik.

You would hope no club is dumb enough to have too many foreigners signed and surely the FFA asks the question when registering the incoming players?

Also are we sure Sheppard is a visa player?
This would imply he isn’t https://www.newcastlejets.com.au/news/a-league-201920-squad-so-far

I read that Ridenton is still training with them. Hoping there is an extra visa spot next season.

A Newcastle Jets player has become the first in the A-League to test positive for the coronavirus, and has gone into self-isolation for two weeks in accordance with protocols issued by NSW Health.

It’s understood the player - whose name cannot be released for privacy reasons - was asymptomatic, and only sought testing as a precaution before an intended overseas trip, according to a well placed source.
He remains asymptomatic and there are no immediate fears other members of the squad have been infected.
Authorities have determined that none of the affected player’s teammates are required to adopt any quarantine measures.

The Jets most recent opponents - Melbourne City five days ago and Brisbane Roar eight days ago - have been informed of developments by A-League chief Greg O’Rourke, who is closely monitoring the issue.
The player in question featured in both those matches.
The news comes 24 hours after a member of the Wellington Phoenix coaching staff also tested positive for COVID-19.
He became symptomatic after returning to New Zealand with the Phoenix squad following the A-League’s official lockdown five days ago.
It’s unknown where and how either contracted the virus, though there are suggestions the Phoenix staff member might have become infected on the flight back from Sydney to Wellington, or during his stay in NSW.
The Phoenix squad had been in Australia - staying and training in isolation - in preparation to complete the remainder of the regular season based in NSW.
Their last match was the 3-0 home win over Melbourne Victory on March 15.
It’s likely that several Phoenix players may have undergone precautionary testing.
Both Jets CEO Lawrie McKinna and his Phoenix counterpart David Dome declined to comment when contacted by The World Game. O’Rourke also did not reply to calls.

I'm more curious as to how he was able to obtain a test given he had no symptoms and hadn't been in close contact with a confirmed case....
Might be a requirement for being able to fly out to some destinations. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s an agreement between places like Aus, US, UK..

Easy one. They wouldn’t test my mum who started to feel unwell after being in isolation after contact with a confirmed case. Even the government line said no.
She simply rang the doctor back and said they said she should get a test and doctor said ok. No reference number or name etc
She was negative on Monday
