Avaldsnes’ run to the Norway Cup meant Simon missed the opening five rounds of the W-League, in which the Jets won three and lost two games to be joint leaders on nine points.

The former Jets skipper said she had watched Newcastle’s promising start to the year from afar and had “been going crazy” waiting to join the campaign.

“I’ve been wanting to get back since the season started,” she said.“It definitely makes it easier with the girls doing really well. It makes being injured not too bad, butI definitely just want to get back on the field.”

Newcastle have the bye this weekend and return against Brisbane Roar away on December 10.

Simon was part of the only Newcastle squad,in 2008-09, to feature in the finals and was hopeful of the Jets converting their encouraging start into another appearance.

“I think we’ve got a really good squad this season,” she said.

“I think we’ve got a strong starting 11 and girls that can come in off the bench to do the job as well.

“I think thisis probably one of the best starts that we’ve had as well, and I think that’s really important for us this season and we’ve just got to keep winning games how ever we can and hopefully make final this year.”

Simon said it was good to be home but that she enjoyed the season withAvaldsnes, who won the Norway Cup, finished second in the domestic competitionand featured in the round of 32 European Champions League, where they lost to Barcelona.
