Perth Glory Youth will take on Cockburn City on Sunday afternoon in Week Four of the QBE Night Series.
Head coach John Gibson said the youngsters have been enjoying competing at the highest level in WA Football.
“The group is progressing well – there is good integration with the experienced core of the group and the less experienced members. The senior players have been outstanding at driving the environment and demanding that standards are being maintained. We’ll just continue to improve and work even harder to be better,” he said.
Midfielder Hagi Gligor said he’s enjoying his time with the Youth side this season.
“I think the young Glory boys are performing very well and are playing some attractive football. It also comes down to John Gibson’s positive coaching techniques, so there is exciting times ahead for the youth team,” he said.
“We’re matching up against some very experienced and physical players, which is something the team has struggled with in the past”.
“The last two games have been very tight and we were unfortunate to not get a result in either game. We’ve been playing good football and creating a lot of chances. If we continue to play the way we’ve been playing the results will change for us.
“Every game we play will be tough and the boys always look forward to playing. I’m sure Coach Gibson will do everything he can to make sure the boys are prepared for this weekend,” Gligor said.
Glory travel to Dalmatinac Park to take on Cockburn on Sunday.
The match will kick-off at 5:00pm.
