Perth Glory's under 18’s successful season has continued following a stunning 6-1 win against Inglewood United.
The big win moved Callum Salmon’s side back to the top of the PS4NPLWA under 18’s table, with Ethan Brooks the star, scoring a hat-trick, while Joe Tweats, Sasa Njegic and Adam Zimarino added the others.
The move back to the top was only temporally after Stirling Lions beat Perth SC on Sunday, but Salmon said it was a good performance from his young side and bodes well for the rest of the season.
“The performance was very pleasing after we didn’t score against Cockburn City the week before,” Salmon said.
“We played with far more quality in the final third, creating many more chances and we were also very clinical in comparison to last week.”
It was an all-round team performance, but Luc Bodnar, Brooks and Zayd Farah were outstanding, for the Glory cubs, while Salmon said they had worked tirelessly on set pieces at training and it was pleasing to see some success against Inglewood.
“Many of the set pieces and corners Davey Butterfield and I had been working hard on the training ground also came to fruition, and that was very pleasing,” he said.
“The big challenge for the group is to maintain their high standards and performances levels week after week for the rest of the season to ensure each player can continue to get better, but most importantly, to truly improve their individual quality.“
In the other game on Saturday Bobby Despotovski’s under 20’s went down narrowly to Inglewood 1-0, the defeat leaving them third on the PS4NPLWA under 20’s table.
Glory's NPL teams are on the road again when they take on Sorrento at Percy Doyle Reserve.
