http://www.wolves.com.au/home.html : Wolves new recruit Jason Van Blerk has arrived at the club today and has already shown that he means business. After arriving in Melbourne in the early hours of this morning Jason flew to Sydney where he was greeted by Wolves Coach John Turner. Jason had endured a 29hour flight where he had left England in minus degrees temperatures and was hit with a beautiful summers morning when arriving at Sydney Airport at approximately 7.30am. Jason was immediately greeted at the airport by a possie of cameramen eager to talk to the former Socceroo who had 33 caps for his country under his belt. Jason arrived at the club at approximately 4pm this afternoon and immediately participated in local press conferences with the Wollongong Media as well as National Press via the phone. He proved his commitment to the team by then joining the rest of the lads for his first training session and is willing to give it all to be on the park to take on Sydney United this Sunday at the Sydney United Sports Centre. The Wolves were the first team to be proactively taking part in the ASA's vision in bringing high profile players back to our domestic league whilst they have still got plenty to offer and guidance for our younger crop of talent coming through the ranks.

13th April 2005 Wilsmlow Express. Jason Van Blerk will be running London Marathon for asthma charity. The Australian international, 37, who lives at Curzon Mews, Wilmslow, will proudly run in Sunday’s stamina-sapping London Marathon to raise money for Asthma UK. It is a condition he has suffered from since the age of two but one he has concealed from a string of clubs through fear bosses would see him as unfit and boot him out of the team. I always kept my asthma secret because of the stigma attached to it and in case the manager thought I was not up to the job. It was only when I stopped playing at a higher level and got a bit older that I became more open about it. The message I now want to get across is that asthma doesn’t have to be a handicap or prevent you from participating in sport either professionally or otherwise. Sydney-born Jason, who plays at left-back, flew over to forge a career in Europe after being spotted by a scout, aged 22. He made 20 appearances for Manchester City and also played for Belgian side St Truiden, Go Ahead Eagles in the Dutch top flight, Millwall, West Brom, Stockport, Hull and Shrewsbury. He now plays for Runcorn and delivers high powered cars for a living.
