Perth Glory is delighted to confirm that Andy Keogh has re-signed with the club.
The Irish striker is Glory’s all-time Hyundai A-League top scorer with 52 goals, 12 of which have come this season and he has made a total 115 A-League appearances in purple.
The former Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leeds United and Millwall man, who first joined Glory in 2014, is thrilled to have pledged his future to the club for another year.
“I’m delighted to have extended,” he said.
“I never had any thoughts about leaving Glory and it’s fantastic to be a part of this team and what is an exciting time for the club.
“I’m looking forward to continuing to score goals and hopefully helping the club to secure some silverware.”
Perth Glory Football Director Jacob Burns, meanwhile, believes that Keogh has a major part to play in Glory’s future.
“Andy’s goalscoring record speaks for itself,” he said, “and he is rightly regarded as one of the very best strikers in the competition.
“Proven goalscorers are a rare commodity, so it’s no surprise that plenty of other clubs were competing for his signature.
“His goalscoring form this year has been outstanding and we look forward to seeing him continue that over the next year as part of what we are confident will be a strong and successful Glory side.”
Those sentiments were echoed by Glory CEO Tony Pignata.
“Andy has been an important part of the foundations that have been put in place here,” he said.
“His re-signing is a key component in our aim to achieve success not only this season, but on a consistent basis in the future.”
