Perth Glory have added three quality players to its squad for this season whilst losing players not necessarily in their top line, placing them in a good position for the campaign ahead.
The biggest 'in' is Robbie Fowler from North Queensland Fury. The former Liverpool man has proven crowd-pulling capabilities and in an environment like Perth may flourish even more than he did last season in Townsville.
The other two signings are Australian pair Josh Mitchell and Michael Baird who have spent time in Romania and are now set to deliver back in their homeland.
Owner Tony Sage has done a lot of work behind the scenes to ensure the Glory will be competing with the top few teams and this season looks the perfect window for them to do that.
