DANNY VUKOVIC (Goalkeeper): A huge fans' favourite with the nib Stadium faithful, 'Vuka' established himself as one of the competition's best at Glory before further Hyundai A-League stints with Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC. This off-season, he completed a high-profile move to Belgian Pro League side KRC Genk.

DEAN HEFFERNAN (Left-back): Red carded in the latter stages of the Grand Final, the ‘Heff’ moved on to Western Sydney Wanderers a year later. After several spells at smaller NSW clubs, the versatile defender retired and moved into A-League punditry with Fox Sports. He featured in the recent Manchester United legends game where he was infamously elbowed by United ‘legend’ Keith Gillespie off the ball.
3 of 19
BAS VAN DEN BRINK (Centre-back): The big Dutch defender played the 2012-13 season for Glory before a move to Churchill Brothers Sporting Club in Goa, India fell through, prompting him to retire. The man with 42 Glory appearances to his name is now a player agent for a company called Soccer Vision/VVCS in his native Holland, representing some of the country’s best talent, including ex-Real Madrid and AC Milan striker, Klaas Jan Huntelaar.
4 of 19
STEVE PANTELIDIS (Centre-back): Steve Pantelidis remained on Glory's books until 2014, making 49 appearances for the club. He eventually completed a move to Malaysian club Selangor FA for whom he featured in a glamour friendly against Spanish La Liga powerhouse, Sevilla. Since then, Pantelidis has returned home to Melbourne and currently combines playing for Oakleigh Cannons in Victoria’s NPL1 with his business interests in the property and construction sectors.

JOSH RISDON (Right-back): 'Rizzo' stayed at Perth Glory for another five seasons, during which time he won senior honours with the Socceroos. The Bunbury-born defender completed a switch to Western Sydney Wanderers earlier this year.

JACOB BURNS (Captain, Centre-midfielder): ‘Burnsy’ captained Perth Glory until the end of his professional career in 2014, eventually chalking up a total of 116 games and three goals for the club. Following retirement, he joined Glory’s administration staff and is now our Head of Football.

LIAM MILLER (Centre-midfielder): The former Manchester United man played an extra season for Perth Glory before making a surprise move to Brisbane Roar in 2013. The Ireland international went on to have a two-match stint at Melbourne City, a season with his hometown club Cork City and then moved to the United States to play for the North Carolina-based Wilmington Hammerheads in the country’s fourth division.

TODD HOWARTH (Left-winger): Howarth’s A-League career finished at the 2012 Grand Final, with the then-30-year-old subsequently joining local NPLWA powerhouse club, Bayswater City. The hard-working utility man has gone on to win numerous honours with Chris Coyne's side, while off the field, he has returned to the financial sector where he works as a business relationships manager with BankWest.
9 of 19
TRAVIS DODD (Right-winger): After a sparkling 2011-12 season for Glory, Dodd was unfortunately hampered by injury in the remaining two years of his contract. After retiring from professional football, the former Socceroo worked as the assistant coach at local NPLWA club Bayswater City before relaunching his playing career for South Australian NPL giants Metrostars last year. The 37-year-old is now an assistant coach of the club and also makes regular appearances as a football pundit in the local and national media.

SHANE SMELTZ (Striker): After requiring stitches in his nose and mouth following a nasty collision with Matt Smith during the Grand Final, the prolific frontman spent two more years at Perth Glory and was the club's record A-League goalscorer with 28 until being overhauled by Andy Keogh last season. He duly moved on to Sydney FC in 2014 and then had a spell in Malaysia at Kedah FA before returning to the A-League with Wellington Phoenix at the tail end of last season. The 35-year-old is now plying his trade at Pusamania Borneo FC and continued his 14-year international career by appearing for New Zealand at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.
11 of 19
BILLY MEHMET (Striker): Something of a cult hero at Perth Glory FC, Mehmet famously scored a late winner in the return clash with Roar which was the first game of the season that followed the Grand Final. He went on to forge a successful career across South-East Asia, playing for clubs in Thailand, India, Malaysia, Singapore and most recently Brunei, where he turned out for the Sultan of Brunei’s team, DPMM.
12 of 19
SCOTT NEVILLE (Sub 76th min): Scotty’s back at Glory! One of three players who featured in the Grand Final currently on the books at Perth Glory, Neville departed the club to join Newcastle for the following season. After three years with the Jets he moved to Western Sydney Wanderers for whom he appeared and scored in the 2016 Grand Final. He was on the losing side again that day, however, so will it be third time lucky in terms of Grand Final appearances for the Perth local this season?
13 of 19
STEVEN MCGARRY (Sub 80th min): Coming on in the 80th minute of the Grand Final, McGarry spent two more years at the club before retiring from the game in 2014. Since then, the former St Mirren man has appeared for Gwelup Croatia in FootballWest’s Amateur Premier League and is now playing and coaching at NPLWA giants, ECU Joondalup.
14 of 19
ANDREZINHO (Unused sub): Having featured on 25 occasions for Glory in the 2011-2012 season, the all-action Brazilian moved to Cypriot side AEP Paphos following the Grand Final. That switch began a journey of transfers across the world for the winger which included stints in Brazil, Kazakhstan and Thailand. Currently a free agent, he has been linked with a move to NPLWA side Bayswater.
15 of 19
JOSH MITCHELL (Unused sub): Like fellow-defender Neville, Mitchell left for Newcastle Jets after the Grand Final. He spent two seasons with the Novocastrians before moving to Chinese club Liaoning Whowin and then Eastern Sporting Club in Hong Kong. The 33-year-old is currently a free agent.
16 of 19
NEIL YOUNG (Unused sub): Reserve 'keeper Young never appeared for Perth Glory in a competitive match and retired while at the club. He became a goalkeeping coach, starting at Glory before moving on to his former club Newcastle Jets. A stint at Kerala Blasters in the Indian Super League followed and he is now working with Thai club Bangkok Glass.
17 of 19
IAN FERGUSON (Manager): ‘Fergie’ led the club into the new season until his sacking in Round 20. From there, the former Rangers legend re-joined Townsville’s Northern Fury, the re-branded version of former A-League club, North Queensland Fury. He continues to work in youth development and recently returned to WA.
18 of 19
MITCH NICHOLS (opposition): Along with Burns and Neville, our new signing at centre-mid completes the trio of 2012 Grand Finalists currently with the club. Nichols played the full 90 minutes for Roar and against Glory and duly claimed the second Championship winners' medal of his six-season spell with the Queensland club.
