Glory young guns prepare for tough battle against United


Perth Glory hit the road in Week 14 of the PS4 National Premier League WA, when it takes on Inglewood United at Inglewood Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Glory was unlucky not to come away with three points last week after conceding late at Cockburn to draw 1-1.

Glory keeper Jordan Thurtell said they were disappointed to not come home with the win, but said they are looking forward to taking on second placed Inglewood. “I thought we controlled most of the game at Cockburn and deserved more than the draw,” he said.

“It’s been a hectic period for the players, playing three games in a week, so at the end of the day it was a really positive team performance.

“The boys really relish playing against the top sides, and they are looking forward to a big game.

“They (Inglewood) beat us in the first round, but on the day I felt we deserved more and we will be looking to even the score on Saturday.”

Glory Coach John Gibson said they will be looking to perform consistently against an experienced Inglewood side.

“All games are invaluable to the group – many lessons learned every week,” he said.

“Last week against Cockburn was another tough lesson for the group to swallow – the smallest details is now the difference in being fully rewarded for their performance.”

“Inglewood is a side packed with experienced ex-professional players in their ranks, and we are excited to put another consistent performance together against tough opposition,” he said.

“We’ve shown this season we can compete with every team in the league, and no doubt this weekend will be no different. We’ve had another solid block of training this week and look forward to the fixture on Saturday.“

The match will have extra sizzle with Glory star striker Andy Keogh assisting United’s coaching staff. 

The under 18’s kick off at 11am and under 20’s at 1pm.

The first team action kicks-off at 3pm and entry is free for all .
