Bridges extends A-League stay

Former Leeds and Sunderland striker Michael Bridges has penned a one-year contract extension with A-League outfit the Newcastle Jets.

Bridges joined Newcastle in 2009, and announced he would retire in 2011. However, a change of heart saw the 34-year-old return to action last season, and Bridges says he will continue to play on for as long as his body can handle the demands.

"I'm delighted to be able to spend another season playing at the Jets," Bridges said. "My family and I are very happy in Newcastle and we love the lifestyle here, so it's great to settle down and have my future sorted.

"I'm my biggest critic and I've said since day one of pre-season that I've never felt this fit, never felt this strong.

"Thankfully I got the chance to show that. I'm playing better football and looking leaner and fitter than I was when I arrived three years ago. Hopefully I can pass on some wisdom and some knowledge and help bring our younger players along."

Bridges' new deal includes a development role with the club during the A-League off-season.

"We are delighted Michael has re-signed with the club for next season, and in addition, to have him involved with our juniors is a major boost for our region," chief executive Robbie Middleby said.
