Glory boys head to Canberra


Three Perth Glory FC youngsters are among the nation’s best after landing a two year contract at the FFA Centre of Excellence in Canberra

Teenagers Jacob Italiano, Jaiden Seldon and Bryce Bafford were playing in Glory’s U-18 team last year.

Now they’ll be spending the next two years in the nation’s capital honing their craft and skill under the watchful eyes of Australia’s best youth coaches.

“I’m extremely proud” said Perth Glory’s U-18s coach Callum Salmon.

“It’s fantastic that Perth Glory has produced three players who will be in a professional full -time environment with the best coaches and access to the best facilities the country can offer” he said.

The trio follow in the footsteps of Glory young gun Jamal Reiners and returned striker Adam Taggart who’ve spent time at the Centre of Excellence.
