Newcastle Jets re-sign Pepper, Kantarovski

The Newcastle Jets have secured the services of young midfielders Jacob Pepper and Ben Kantarovski for another two A-League seasons.

The local 21-year-olds on Friday agreed to two-year deals, keeping them at the Jets until the end of the 2015/2016 campaign.

Kantarovski said he was excited to re-sign with the club after being sidelined for much of the past two seasons with knee injuries.

"I've missed a lot of football, so this is another chance to get out there and play for Newcastle for another two years," he said in a statement.

Both players are studying at the University of Newcastle - Pepper undertaking a degree in nutrition and Kantarovski in psychology.

"You just don't know what's going to happen with your football career," Pepper said.

"You could get injured and go off the radar, so you need a back-up plan and it's good after my football career that I can continue with my nutritional work."

The re-signings come a day after attacking machine Adam Taggart agreed to a one-year contract extension with the Jets.

Taggart is the A-League's leading goal scorer after seven rounds with six goals - including a hat-trick in the Jets' win over Melbourne Heart last Sunday.
