Newcastle Jets defender Connor Chapman has been selected as a member of the A-League All Stars squad for the blockbuster with Manchester United at ANZ Stadium on Saturday 20 July.

Chapman will head to Sydney to join the rest of the All Stars as Ange Postecolglu’s squad commence their preparations for the match against the Red Devils in front of a sell-out crowd at Homebush.

Jets CEO Robbie Middleby congratulated Chapman on his selection in the squad and wished him all the best for the game against the English champion.

'It’s fantastic to have the Jets represented in the A-League All Stars and we’re excited to see Connor in action on such a big stage," Middleby said.

'It caps off what has been a very exciting 12 months for Connor.

'In a short space of time he has established himself as an A-League player, has represented his country at a FIFA Under-20 World Cup and now has the chance to play against arguably the biggest club in world football, Manchester United.

'It is going to be a fantastic experience and one that I’m sure Connor will cherish for years to come."
