Perth Glory-s Most Glorious Player awards night, proudly supported by QBE Insurance, will be held tomorrow night in the Burswood Entertainment Complex Grand Ballroom.
A number of Perth Glory stars have been tipped to take the major prize, ensuring Saturday-s countdown will be one to remember.
Will young gun Scott Neville be crowned the winner, given his outstanding performance this season that earned him a call up to the national squad?
Or will it be Tando Velaphi, guardian of the glory goals, who has been solid in his own right and made some spectacular saves throughout 2010/11?
Perhaps it will be the Liverpool legend, Robbie Fowler, who has nine goals to his name and a handful of assists to boot.
Consistent seasons from Captain Jacob Burns and left midfielder Todd Howarth, has brought these lads well into the mix and will be strong contenders on the night also.
Perthglory.com took it to the Perth Glory players to have the final say on who they think is the deserved winner of the Most Glorious Player award.
Former Socceroo and squad leader Jacob Burns believes that rising star Scott Neville is a shoo-in to go home with the trophy.
“He-s had a super season, he-s been very consistent and stepped up to the plate on the back of last season so I think he-s done very well,” Burns said.
Custodian Tando Velaphi agrees, “My tip would be young Scotty Neville. He-s killed it this year; he-s had a very solid season,” he said.
Chris Coyne says his vote will go to Velaphi, who is up there with Neville as one of the favourites.
“For me, Tando Velaphi. He-s been awesome for us and is the best goal keeper in the league,” Coyne said.
Team prankster Robbie Fowler was at it again when asked who he thought would take out the prestigious award.
“Well I-d be surprised if I-m not in the top two,” he said jokingly.
Perth Glory-s night of nights will kick-off at 7pm with ten awards up for grabs across all three Glory teams.
