Perth Glory makes a welcome return to Mandurah after their AP-League clash with Melbourne Heart in September.

‘More than 1000 children have attended our Soccer Schools so far in 2013,’ Glory community development officer Dan Cappellaro said.

‘The two day clinic has been successful in providing a fantastic holiday experience unrivalled in Western Australia and known for being amongst the best in the A-League.

‘We’ve had amazing fun with all the kids throughout the year, the number of repeat visits we receive as well as all the new faces makes my job the best in the world.’

The club has been conducting a number of clinics around the Perth metropolitan area and Mandurah is the latest to receive the Purple Army.

‘We are delighted to be welcoming Perth Glory to our club and our region again,’ Mandurah City FC president Pete Rowe said.’The schools are one of the best in the country and they have received rave reviews when they have been staged.’ Glory staff and players will be at Hyundai Stadium from 8.30am to 11.30am on Saturday, December 7.

Players will receive three hours of professional coaching from Perth Glory players and staff, a Perth Glory Soccer Schools shirt, a general admission ticket to a Glory A-League game, a backpack, a football and other soccer giveaways.

The cost is $60 per child. For details, contact Mandurah City FC at mandurahcityfc.com.au or 0413 311 175.
