Get to Know Your Newcastle Jets | Trent Buhagiar

Trent Buhagiar grew up in Umina on the Central Coast and was raised in a football family, with his older brothers and parents all involved in the sport.


At the age of five, Buhagiar began his footballing journey at Umina United Eagles, where he played until he was 12. He trained with the Central Coast Football academy as a junior player before transferring to the Central Coast Mariners Academy and beginning his professional career for the Mariners. After playing for the Mariners from a young age, Buhagiar transferred to Sydney FC, where he played for three years.

“I played in an ACL [Asian Champions League] tournament and scored five goals in six games, which was a cool experience,” said Trent.

Buhagiar signed with the Newcastle Jets last year for the 2022/2023 season, where he scored his second goal in Jets colours against his former club.

“It was a weird feeling scoring against the Mariners, but you are always versing your old clubs, so it’s natural,” said Trent.

Buhagiar has scored five goals for the Jets so far, with his most recent goal the match-winner in last week’s win over Macarthur in the longest match in history.

Buhagiar says the transition to Newcastle has been seamless, and he is well suited to the city.

“Newcastle is a really nice place to live, it has a very chill vibe, and I’ve been enjoying my time here so far,” said Trent.

“Newcastle has been great so far; it is such a great group of boys, everyone is close, and it’s always a laugh in the changeroom. We are also serious on the pitch and bring lots of intensity to training. We try to bring out the best in each other.”

Buhagiar has taken up the hobby of playing golf in his spare time, playing regularly with some of his teammates. He also likes to spend downtime watching tv shows and playing Call of Duty and FIFA with his friends. Get along to a home game and watch Trent in action!
