Perth Glory

Perth GloryFounded in 1996, Perth Glory dominated the old NSL in the early 2000s, winning three premierships and two championships. Since joining the A-League, the club’s fortunes have changed, with the once-mighty Glory often near the foot of the table.

The club finally made its first finals appearance in 2009/10, but a disastrous losing streak in 2010/11 saw David Mitchell replaced by former North Queensland Fury boss Ian Ferguson, who took the club to their first A-League Grand Final appearance in the 2011/12 season, where the Glory lost a controversial match to the Brisbane Roar.

The club looked set to break its championship drought in 2014-15, leading the league for much of the season, but ended up being barred from the finals and fined $269,000 for breaching the competition’s salary cap.

2015-16 was less successful on the pitch, but far more legal off it, with the club finishing in 5th spot on the ladder on the back of an outstanding season from Johnny Warren Medallist, Diego Castro. Castro was unable to guide the Glory to a deep finals run, with the club being knocked out by Melbourne City in the elimination finals, 2-0.

2015-16 season: 5th, lost in elimination finals

2016-17 squad: Jordan Thurtell, Nicholas Feely, Liam Reddy, Alex Grant, Marc Warren, Dino Djulbic, Josh Risdon, Aryn Williams, Rhys Williams, Joseph Mills, Shane Lowry, Nebo Marinkovic, Mitch Oxborrow, Brandon Wilson, Diego Castro, Richard Garcia, Jamal Reiners, Andy Keogh, Kosta Petratos, Chris Harold.

Coach: Kenny Lowe

Having seen his team routinely beaten by Heidelberg, Kenny Lowe must have felt a foreboding shudder rumble through him. Ken Athiu’s goal, punched into the top corner, may not be the only serving of public embarrassment served up to Lowe and Perth this season.
