Wellington Phoenix sign Ryan Lowry, brother of Perth Glory star Shane
Wellington Phoenix have bolstered their defensive stocks for the upcoming A-League season with the signing of 22-year-old Ryan Lowry.
Lowry, the brother of Perth Glory star Shane, has signed a one-year contract and will join the Phoenix after departing Western Australian side ECU Joondalup SC.
"At my age I might not get another chance like this and I am determined to make the most of it," Lowry said.
Lowry has recently trained with the New Zealand based club, and while he specialises at centre-back, he also plays as a full-back.
He was recommended to the club by goalkeeper Lewis Italiano, who played for Joondalup during the A-League off-season.
