Perth Glory is delighted to confirm that Andy Keogh and Brandon Wilson have signed with the club for the A-League 2020/21 Season.

Keogh returns for a third spell in purple having previously established himself as the club’s all-time record A-League scorer with 55 goals in 122 appearances.

The Republic of Ireland international also lists Leeds United, Cardiff City, Bristol City and Millwall among his former clubs.

Having plied his trade in six different countries, the man who will become an Australian citizen next month is delighted to be back representing what has become his adopted home city of Perth.

“I really want to help the people I care about to move the club forward,” he said.

“I’m an experienced player and I’m confident that I can contribute both in terms of helping the team and also assisting the young players that we have with their development.

“This is about helping a club that I care about and I’m looking forward to what I’m sure will be a successful season.”

Perth local Wilson, meanwhile, returns to Glory after spending  the second half of last season with Wellington Phoenix.

The versatile 23-year-old made 45 appearances here in the West ahead of his move to New Zealand having joined the club in 2016 following a spell with English Premier League outfit Burnley.

Like Keogh, he is delighted to be back.

“I always had a great relationship with the Glory Members and fans,” he said, “so I’m really looking forward to getting out there and representing them once again.

“I grew up watching the team play from The Shed and always wanted to be a Perth Glory player, so it’s fantastic to have that opportunity to play for my home club again and I can’t wait for the season to begin.”

Glory Head Coach Richard Garcia is confident that both players will make a significant contribution this term.

“Andy is a fantastic player who is passionate about Perth Glory and he’s made a number of sacrifices in order to return,” he said.

“He wants the best for the club, we know what he brings to the side and the kind of character he is and we’re delighted to have him back on board.

“Brandon is another player who loves the club and is a young Perth talent with plenty to offer.

“He’s very versatile and exactly the kind of player and person we want in the squad to help drive the club forward.”
