The defensive trio of Claire Coelho, Sophie Nenadovic and Claire Wheeler have re-signed with the Jets while Dylan Holmes returns to Adelaide United after two seasons.
Coelho, Nenadovic and Wheeler made a combined 19 appearances for the Jets during the 2017/18 season with coach Craig Deans excited to have them back on board
“They’ve each spent plenty time in our Academy system and it’s great to see them reap the rewards of the work they’ve put in over a number of years.
“It’s important we continue to promote local players and they’re at the forefront of an exciting crop of youngsters coming from Newcastle and Northern New South Wales," Deans said.
“They’re each excellent young players who will again be important to us and I’m expecting they’ll take another step in their development this season,” he said.
Coelho, who spent the last season as a back-up to American goalkeeper Britt Eckerstrom, will be looking to stake her claim as the main shot-stopper this season.
Wheeler spent the off season in the NPL Women's NSW competition with Sydney University where she made 22 appearances and scored three goals. She also won the Premiership with the squad after they finished top of the table.
Nenadovic played nine times for the Jets last season, with the Australian U20 representative making five starts in that time.
Meanwhile, Adelaide United signed NPL Women's SA Championship winner Dylan Holmes.
The 21-year-old returns to the club following two impressive years with Adelaide City which included back-to-back Championships in 2017 and 2018.

Homles first played with the Reds in 2014.
“Dylan has proven she is a quality footballer in the WNPL over the last few seasons," Head Coach Ivan Karlović said.
“Her contributions to Adelaide City have been impressive and she has developed into someone with many strong attributes.
“She’s an intelligent player who can read the game well, but can also push forward and contribute by putting the ball in the back of the net.
“Obviously Dylan was part of our Club previously and has earned another opportunity to show how much she has developed since then,” he said.
