Jobe Wheelhouse (born 14 April 1985 in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia) is an Australian football (soccer) player who plays for Lambton Jaffas.

Club career[edit]

Wheelhouse was unavailable for the majority of the 2006-07 A-League season and made his return against Perth Glory in Round 1 of the 2007-08 season.

Since returning, the often unfairly maligned Wheelhouse has impressed for the Jets, one of the standouts in Newcastle's disastrous 2008-09 A-League campaign, where they plummeted from champions to wooden spooners in one season. Jobe scored one of the great A-League goals of all time in a Round 18 clash with Gold Coast United in season 2009-10; the goal was described by Gold Coast manager Miron Bleiberg as a "Maradona-style" goal.

On 23 September 2011 he was appointed captain of the Newcastle Jets for the 2011–12 A-League season.[1] After playing quite an important role in his captaincy, Jobe Wheelhouse was again appointed the captain of the Newcastle United Jets for the 2012/ 2013 Hyundai A-League Season.

On 31 January 2013 it was announced that Wheelhouse had quit the club and was taking the rest of the season off; the reason behind his departure was that his contract was not going to be renewed for the 2013/2014 season.[2] He is now playing for Northern NSW State League side Lambton Jaffas [3]

International career[edit]


He represented Australia at the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship.
