Perth Glory Youth will play the final match of their National Youth League season when they tackle Newcastle at BGC Stadium on Saturday evening, Valentines Day.

There will no doubt be plenty of passion on the pitch with both sides looking to finish their season on a high, and Glory Coach Gareth Naven will be hoping his team can find their attacking edge against the Jets after several near misses last weekend.

Despite creating a number of good chances last weekend the Glory were unable to hit the back of the net but will be boosted by the return of striker Anthony Skorich who scored a hat trick when the teams last met.

“At the end of the day we haven-t been putting our chances away. That has probably been our achilles this season, we-ve created opportunities but not converted enough,” Naven said.

While a more ruthless edge in and around the box will be a focus this weekend, the Glory also need three points to ensure they finish fourth, a position they-re held for the majority of the competition.

“We-ve been able to play a nice brand of football but at the end of the day the boys like to win, I want to win so there will be a real desire to finish off the season well,” Naven said.
