After leaving for the East Coast in 2012, WA local product Scott Neville returns to nib Stadium from Western Sydney Wanderers.
Neville began his professional career with Glory back in 2008 after plying his trade in the National Training Centre (NTC) setup with Kenny Lowe and rising through the ranks in the Glory Youth side.
The right-back cemented his place amongst the back four in the 2008-2009 season following his debut against the Mariners on New Year’s Eve 2008 and went on to make a total of 64 appearances for the club, including our maiden Hyundai A-League Grand Final, before signing with Newcastle Jets in 2012.
The English-born defender made 43 appearances for the Jets, netting three goals for the Hunter Valley side before leaving in 2015 for Tony Popovic’s Western Sydney Wanderers.
Neville enjoyed a successful spell at the Wanderers highlighted by his stunning strike in the 2016 A-League Grand Final against Adelaide United. The three-time capped Olyroo became a mainstay in their defensive setup throughout his time over East before signing a three-year-deal at Glory.
The 28-year-old will be determined to make the right full-back position his own following Josh Risdon’s departure in the opposite direction.
