Footy fan Jason Brewer is excited about his new role as chief executive of Perth Glory.

Brewer (43) has a background in mine engineering, law and investment banking, and says he joined the club at an exciting time.

‘I’ve been a Glory supporter since I moved to WA from the UK,’ he said. ‘I have also been heavily involved in the local game here.

‘With (head coach) Alistair Edwards at the helm, I see an opportunity to bring the glory days back.

‘The foundations have been built and now I want to take the club forward.

‘We’re building a team and I think people need to recognise that.

‘Alistair has been fantastic in attracting quality young players and it’s a case of building them up over the next 12 months.

‘We are going to compete on the field this season and hopefully if we get the results early on, the great supporter base we have in Perth will get behind the team.’

Brewer identified strengthening the club’s relationship with FootballWest and ensuring greater engagement with its supporters as two of his main objectives.

‘I’ve worked with FootballWest in previous positions,’ he said.

‘I think the alignment of Glory and FootballWest is critical to the success of the game in this State.

‘We’ve got to get out there and continue the work we started with things like the pre-season friendlies at Gosnells and Kwinana.

‘We need to re-engage with fans and get them back to what is now a fantastic stadium following the redevelopments completed last season.

‘We’ve got some great people here who are passionate about the club and who love what they’re doing.’
