Midweek Matters

Wednesday's rolled around again and that means it's time to round up the very latest news coming out of Glory HQ.

Victory in his sights

Diego Castro is making solid progress in his recovery from a calf injury.

The marquee man has missed the last two games after picking up the knock in the latter stages of the Round 21 win over Melbourne City.

But the club's medical team are optimistic that he will be fit in time to face Melbourne Victory on March 25th.

Glory's only other injury concern is Castro's compatriot Andreu who complained of general soreness in the wake of Saturday's clash with the Mariners, but he is also expected to be available for the Victory game.

Another Cup Final...

Melbourne Victory may have impressed in the Asian Champions League overnight, but they've only won once in their last five visits to nib Stadium, so if you want to see if we can maintain that impressive record and take another step towards the finals, book your tickets HERE.

Focus on Forrestfield

Glory's PGFC Academy team will be out to extend their unbeaten start to the NPL WA season when they travel to Forrestfield on Saturday.

John Gibson's side followed up a win and a draw in their first two games with a come-from-behind, 4-1 victory over Joondalup United at Ashfield last time out.

Glory are currently riding high in second place, while Forrestfield are seventh having registered one win, one draw and one defeat in their three outings this term.

With our Hyundai A-League team not in action this weekend, why not get your live football fix by heading along to Wildlife Safari Stadium which is surely worth the trip for the name alone!

The Under-18s start at 3pm, with the Under-20s then in action at 5pm ahead of the first-team game which kicks off at 7pm.

Close Shave

You can catch up with Glory duo Andy Keogh and Shane Lowry at Hillcrest Primary School in Bayswater on Friday as they take part in the World's Greatest Shave to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation.

Club physios Chris Hutchinson and Nafyn Pattiaratchi will also be losing their locks as part of Team Hero Hunter which represents 4-year-old Hunter Madden who has spent much of his life bravely battling leukaemia and continues to do so.

The shave is taking place as part of the school's Wanju Festival which gets underway at 5pm and it would be great to see as many Glory members and fans as possible coming along to support the guys.

Make a date with the Matildas

Perth fans will have a chance to see Australia's best female footballers in action at nib Stadium on Monday 26 March when the Matildas take on Thailand in an international friendly.

Sam Kerr at the Algarve Cup

 

Our very own Sam Kerr is set to lead the line for Alen Stajcic's side who are continuing their preparations for next month's AFC Women's Asian Cup in Jordan.

Kick off is at 6pm and you can grab your tickets HERE.
