PERTH Glory has extended the contract of striker Andy Keogh for another season, which will take him to the end of the 2018-19 A-League season.

“We are delighted to secure the services of Andy Keogh beyond next season, a player who plays such a key role in our team and club,” chief executive Peter Filopoulos said.

“Andy is now well settled in Perth and excitingly he is also working towards securing his Australian citizenship.

“With 17 players contracted for next season we are in a good position to build upon our squad in the coming weeks and months.”

Since arriving at Glory ahead of the 2014-15 A-League season, Keogh has played 70 games and scored 34 goals and despite his relatively short tenure at the club was recently voted by Perth Glory members as part of its Ultimate XI (1996-2016) team of the last 20 seasons.

“I’m thrilled that I have extended my contract for another year which will see me at the club for at least the next two seasons. I am happy at Perth Glory and my family and I have settled well in Perth and WA,” Keogh said.

“I am also excited with what we are building here at the club and look forward to helping bring success for our members and fans very soon. I can’t wait for the 2017-18 season to begin.”
