Perth Glory FC wishes to confirm that following a comprehensive internal review, the club has decided to move in a new direction and as part of that, Kenny Lowe will step away from his role as Head Coach with immediate effect.
Kenny will instead take up a new position as Technical Director of our newly-accredited 2-Star Academy.
With more than a decade of experience in youth development and having played a major role in nurturing some of WA’s finest young talent, the club believes that Kenny will add huge value and be a perfect fit for the Academy position.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Kenny for his four-and-a-half years of superb service to the club, during which time he led the team to two FFA Cup Finals and two appearances in the Hyundai A-League Finals.
The club is delighted to have retained his services as it moves forward.
The process of recruiting a new Head Coach, meanwhile, will commence immediately.
Glory CEO Peter Filopoulos was quick to pay tribute to Lowe when he fronted the media on Friday morning.
“I’d like to personally thank Kenny for everything that he has done for this club during his tenure as Head Coach,’ he said.
“This was not an easy decision to make, but unfortunately we felt that his coaching journey had come to an end, at least in terms of our Hyundai A-League team.
“But as a club, we did not want to lose someone with Kenny’s experience, knowledge, drive and integrity and are therefore delighted that he has agreed to head up our PGFC Academy as its Technical Director.
“The Academy is a key part of the club’s future and with someone of Kenny’s quality at the helm, I know that it will go from strength to strength and continue to produce exciting young players capable of starring for Glory, the Socceroos and elite clubs overseas.”
