Two days out from their season opener against Adelaide United, Perth Glory has received a timely boost with gun defender Scott Jamieson putting pen to paper and signing on for a another year.

The 2008/09 Hyundai A-League Young Player said he was happy to be staying at the Glory and was confident the club is heading in the right direction.

"I'm very happy to be staying at Perth Glory," Jamieson said.

"I feel this is a place I can continue to grow as a footballer and a person. I've really enjoyed playing with my current team mates and I feel that there are exciting times ahead."

Just days short of his 25th birthday, the tenacious defender has a racked up over 100 Hyundai A-League appearances in a relatively short amount of time having played at Adelaide United and Sydney FC before settling in Perth for the 2011/12 season.

"Perth is a great place to live and I feel with the great fans and great squad we have at the club - we will be a major force in the future,"

Perth Glory Head Coach Alistair Edwards said Jamieson was a fantastic player and his contact extension, along with other recent signings like Danny Vukovic, was further proof of the Glory's positive culture.

"First and foremost, he's a very good player. He's had a great season last year and been rewarded with that with an invitation to the Socceroos training camps," Edwards said.

"[Along side Danny Vukovich], they're important signings for the club. It's great to have these guys on the cusp of Socceroos selection buying into our philosophy at this great club."

"They're in a good environment because they're ambitious and they want to play at the highest level and it's great for everyone. I think The fans are happy because to get these kind of guys really wanting, at such an early stage of the season, to committing themselves to Perth Glory and the direction we're heading is a great sign."

Jamieson had a great 2012 season with the Glory, playing 22 games and finishing Runner up to Steve McGarry in the Most Glorious Player Award. As a defender who always likes to get forward, Jamieson delivered 181 Balls into the penalty area for the Glory last season which was 7th best in the league.

"Scott [Jamieson] brings those marauding runs down the left-hand side - it reminds me a little bit of the Scott Miller of old," Edwards said.

"That's one of the important things for Scott as well in that he has a club legend in Scotty Miller as one of the coaching staff. Scott Miller is probably the best left back the club has ever produced so it's great that another Scott is helping him."

"Jammo is highly ambitious, so he has some really good people around him to help him achieve his goals. You see them talking a lot on the sidelines and one-on-one, they do a lot of video analysis together".

"We're really pleased with the way everything is going and I think the culture here is fantastic. We've got some really good strong experienced players who have committed themselves to the club and long side that we have some go really exciting young talent who are going to benefit from the Jacob Burns, Scott Jamiesons and Danny Vukovics," Edwards added.
