Saturday-s match is just the third time the Glory Youth have played in Perth and will looking for some home town support to get their season back on track after two tough away trips.

Glory currently sits in fourth position on the Youth League table and Coach Gareth Naven has maintained his focus on the continued development of his players, many of whom have taken significant steps in the national competition.

“It-s all about us, what we can do and how we can improve ourselves by playing against quality opposition,” Naven said.

“We know our opponents basic formation and how they like to play but it-s important for us to play the way we want.

“While results are nice we are always mindful that our primary goal is to develop our young boys into the best players they can be,” said Naven.
