Experienced attacking midfielder signs for remainder of season

Perth Glory is delighted to confirm that attacking midfielder Nick Fitzgerald has signed with the club for the remainder of the ISUZU UTE A-League 2021-22 season.

The 29-year-old boasts a wealth of experience having amassed nearly 200 A-League appearances during spells with Central Coast Mariners, Brisbane Roar, Melbourne City, Western Sydney Wanderers and Newcastle Jets.

A former Australia Under-20 and Under-23 international, Fitzgerald was a Championship winner with both Roar and the Mariners and also claimed FFA Cup honours during his time at Melbourne City.

After spending last season with Indian Super League club Jamshedpur FC, for whom he made eight appearances, Fitzgerald returned to his native Sydney and is now relishing the prospect of embarking upon the latest chapter in his career with Glory.

“I’m really excited to be back in the A-League and playing with Perth Glory,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge and helping the boys to try and achieve something good this year.

“It’s been difficult being away from Perth, but we’re still hoping to get back there and play in front of the Glory Members and fans.”

Glory Head Coach Richard Garcia, meanwhile, believes that the new recruit will prove to be an excellent addition to the playing group.

“Nick is an experienced A-League player who will bring us another experienced option in attack,” he said.

“He’s determined to prove his quality at this level again and has settled well within the squad.”

Fitzgerald is expected to come straight into the Glory squad for Sunday’s clash with Central Coast Mariners and has been allocated the number 11 shirt.
