Risdon nominated for Sports Star of the Year award

Perth Glory FC defender Josh Risdon has been nominated for the South West Sports Star of the Year award for the third consecutive year.

2015 has been eventful for the 23-year old Bunbury born defender.

He received his first international cap on November 7 2015, playing for the Socceroos against Bangladesh.

Risdon also played his 100th career Hyundai A-League match for Perth Glory in 2015, the youngest player in the team's A-League history to do so, and only the 7th Glory player to reach the milestone.

During the 2014/15 season, Risdon led the Hyundai A-League in tackles won, and has followed that up in the 2015/16 season leading the way again with 51 tackles won, after 18 rounds.

The winner of the award will be announced on March 2 in Bunbury.
