Youngsters aiming to tame in-form Lions

The PGFC Academy First Team return to action on Saturday afternoon by taking on in-form Stirling Macedonia at Macedonia Park (kick-off at 3pm).

Glory will head into the game having picked up three points from their opening two fixtures of the 2022 NPL WA campaign, with last week’s defeat at the hands of Floreat Athena owing much to the controversial early red card issued to skipper Jacob Muir.

Muir will miss consequently be unavailable for Saturday’s game, but Head Coach Alex Epakis is relishing the prospect of locking horns with a home side which has marked its return to the top flight by winning both of its opening two games.

“It’s been great to have another week to work with the squad in the lead-up to this game and we have an opportunity to rebound from last weekend’s result,” he said.

“There were plenty of positives to take from the Floreat game and we’ll look to build on those against what is an in-form Stirling side.”

Epakis’ opposite number on Saturday will be former Glory boss Ian Ferguson and there are likely to be more familiar faces in their squad, including Michael Domfeh, Calvin Whitney and Hristijan Jankuloski who all spent time in the PGFC Academy.

Ahead of the First Team game, the Under-18s will be in action at 11am, followed by the Under-20s at 1pm, so do get along and lend the lads your support if you can.
