Two-year contract extension for veteran Perth Glory goalkeeper Liam Reddy

Perth Glory’s retention plan continues to gather pace with veteran goalkeeper Liam Reddy committing to the club for two more seasons.

Reddy joins strikers Andy Keogh and Joel Chianese in re-signing.

Reddy, 37, is the most travelled player in the A-League.

Glory is his seventh side and next season will be his fourth at the club where he has made 75 appearances.

Reddy said he was thrilled to have committed his future to Perth. He will be approaching 40 when his contract expires.

“I’m very happy to have re-signed. I’m determined to win some silverware with Glory,” he said. “The club has a very bright future and it will be great to be a part of that.”

Glory football director Jacob Burns said Reddy had an important role within the squad.

“Liam brings tremendous experience and leadership to the playing group and is enjoying an outstanding season,” he said.

“He has worked really hard to adapt to the new structure and the way we want to play.”

Glory chief executive Tony Pignata praised Reddy’s winning mentality.

“Liam sets a great example with his professionalism on and off the field,” Pignata said.

“He will continue to be an important figure for Glory moving forward.”

Reddy played in the inaugural A-League game, for Newcastle against Adelaide United in August 2005.

Jets striker Mark Bridge, now with Western Sydney Wanderers, is the only other player from that game still in the A-League.

Bridge, 33, is about to retire.

Reddy’s career has him sitting high on all-time A-League records. He is sixth on the most A-League appearance list with 271 games and his 71 clean sheets are the third best on the list.

He has kept out the opposition eight times this season.
