Perth Glory is delighted to announce that Philippines international forward Quinley Quezada has joined the club’s Liberty A-League squad for the 2023/24 season.
The 26-year-old has been a key figure for the Philippines in recent years, helping them win the AFF Women’s Championship, reach the semi-finals of the AFC Asian Cup in 2022 and then qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup for the first time in the nation’s history.
At club level, meanwhile, she followed a stellar US collegiate career by playing in both Japan for JEF United Chiba and in Serbia with Red Star Belgrade.
The Philippines’ all-time record goalscorer is now looking forward to embarking upon a new stage of her football journey in the A-League.
“I’m very excited to be joining Perth Glory this season,” she said.
“Aside from Perth being a beautiful community to live in, I’ve heard so many admirable things about the club and team.
“I followed the Women’s team last season and they made a great run in the league.
“For this upcoming season, I’m hoping the team will grow into a strong unit and be constantly gunning for that number one spot.
“Personally, I want to continue learning, improving my technical skills and trying to be a leader within the team in any form that I can.
“I’m looking forward to joining the team and fighting for the championship!”
Glory Head Coach Alex Epakis, meanwhile, is looking forward to being reunited with a player he previously worked with during his time as part of the Philippines coaching staff earlier this year.
“Quinley is another player (along with fellow-new Glory recruit Jessica Cowart) whose character and football qualities I had the opportunity to witness first-hand during the Women’s World Cup,” he said.
“She is a senior member within the Philippines Women’s national team and has a strong level of versatility to her game across multiple attacking positions.
“I have been conscious of the style of play we want to have this season and having various attacking threats and types of players is an important part of that vision.
“Quinley will provide us with different attacking qualities and will certainly build a great combination with our other players in attack.
“She has a great demeanour and mindset and is a very focused individual who can bring the best out of her teammates off the field.”
