O'Neill named Glory skipper

Perth Glory have named Brandon O'Neill as the clubs skipper having just returned for his second stint at the club.


O'Neill said being named captain was something he was honoured by.


"We have some amazing leaders at this football club, people that I’m learning from every day, but I think it’s important for me to try and help people become the best versions of themselves and to allow all the lads to be vulnerable enough to say this is me and I’m ready to have a crack."


The Glory have also announced Natasha Rigby will lead its women's team for the 2021/22 season.


Rigby said she was excited by the team they had been able to put together.


"We are building a specific environment where players feel safe to be themselves and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead.


"We have a lot to prove this year and the players have certainly started pre-season with a bang."
