Perth Glory is delighted to confirm that Jason Davidson has re-signed for the club for the 2019/20 season.
The 27-year-old has emerged a genuine fans’ favourite during what is his debut season for the club, catching the eye with both his solid defending and swashbuckling attacking runs down the left flank.
His all-action approach is reflected in his stats which include four assists, two goals, the most touches of the ball of any Glory player the most crosses attempted and the most duels contested.
The man popularly known as ‘Davo’ has thoroughly enjoyed what is his first taste of senior football in Australia and is relishing the prospect of extending his stay here in the West.
“I want to continue to be a part of something special,” he said.
“The success that the club is striving for is something that I want to help achieve and I feel fortunate to be a part of a team unit that is so strong on and off the pitch.
“It’s great to have come back to play in Australia and hit the ground running with a team that is playing so well.”
Glory Football Director Jacob Burns was quick to acknowledge the impact that the man with 22 Socceroos caps to his name has made this term.
“Jason has been in great form and is clearly thriving under the guidance of [Head Coach] Tony Popovic and his coaching staff," he said.
"He has made a significant contribution to the team’s success this season and we look forward to his continued performances as we build for the future.
“As with many of our players, we beat off stiff competition from other clubs when we initially signed him and again now when we sought to retain his services.”
Glory CEO Tony Pignata, meanwhile, praised the defender’s determination and winning mentality.
“Jason has really bought into our club’s vision of sustained success,” he said.
“He wants to continue to be an important figure in a team that is not only challenging for honours and silverware this season, but on a consistent basis in the future.”
Further major player announcements will be made in the very near future.
