Perth Glory assistant coach Kenny Lowe has decided to stand down from his position with the club but he-ll play a vital role in the development of our next crop of young stars.

Lowe will continue to coach and development the next group of promising players as coach of the National training centre (NTC).

The club would like to thank Lowe for his wonderful contribution since joining Perth Glory mid-way through 2007/08 Hyundai A-League season and wishes the highly respected coach all the best in his future endeavours.

“I-ve had a great time and really appreciate Dave Mitchell and Tony Sage bringing me to the club and giving me a chance at the top level.

“I feel it-s the right decision and I hope Ian Ferguson and Perth Glory have a really successful season,” Lowe said.

“Kenny's been one of the greats of the team,'' Perth Glory goal keeper Aleks Vrteski said.

"He's always offering help to the younger players, he's got that link about him.

"He looks after the young boys and he offers a lot of assistance to the older players and his knowledge of the game is second to none.

"So it's obviously a sad day to lose him but he's obviously got other interests in life and we all move on,” he said.
