Perth Glory is delighted to confirm that Abbey Green, Hana Lowry, Lexie Moreno and Isabella Wallhead will be a part of the club’s Westfield W-League squad for the 2020/21 Season.

All four have already been handed their senior debuts and Lowry grabbed her first W-League goal with a memorable header in last season’s Round 11 victory over Newcastle Jets.

16-year-old attacker Green returns to the fold having made her W-League bow against Brisbane Roar during the 2018/19 campaign, while 17-year-old defender Wallhead featured as a substitute on three occasions last term.

Now 19, young Matildas representative Moreno has made ten appearances over the last three years having scored on debut against Canberra United back in 2017 and 17-year-old Lowry, who has also represented Australia at youth level, made three starts in purple last season.

Head Coach Alex Epakis is relishing the prospect of the gifted youngsters continuing their progress in the upcoming campaign.

“Lexie, Isabella, Abbey and Hana are some of the brightest and most talented young players in the country,” he said.

“They are products of the local NTC programs and proud Perth locals.

“Each of them has plenty of ability and potential and I look forward to working closely with them to aid their development and ensure that they are ready to contribute to the squad in a positive way.”

Further player announcements will be made shortly and Glory’s Westfield W-League Season will get underway on Tuesday 29 December when Canberra United will provide the opposition at Dorrien Gardens (kick-off at 6pm WST).
