“I’m very pleased to have re-signed and it was an easy decision to make,” he said.

“I’ve improved under the manager (Tony Popovic) this year and am really looking forward to another two seasons with Glory.

Glory Football Director Jacob Burns believes that Brimmer is a genuine talent and definitely one to watch.

“Jake is an exciting young player with a very bright future in the game,” he said.
