Glory sign Harold, Zahra in A-League deals

Perth Glory have turned to youth to bolster their A-League squad, securing the services of Gold Coast striker Chris Harold and Melbourne Heart winger Adrian Zahra.

The 19-year-old Perth-born Harold has signed a two-year deal after an impressive season with Gold Coast.

Zahra suffered a serious leg injury following a sickening tackle from Kevin Muscat 15 months ago, but the Glory are confident the 21-year-old speedster won't be affected by any ongoing issues next season.

"We watched quite a lot of him this season as he recovered from a broken leg," Glory coach Ian Ferguson said.

"In one of the games, he actually scored against our Youth team, and all the reports are very positive."

The signings of Harold and Zahra come just days after Perth secured the services of 27-year-old Nick Ward, who was a rising star at the Glory six years ago before leaving the club for other opportunities at home and abroad.

Last week, Perth confirmed they had parted ways with injury-prone former Socceroo Chris Coyne, Todd Howarth, Tommy Amphlett and Josh Mitchell.

Harold, who is studying law-commerce, will arrive in Perth in June after he completes his semester at university.

The Glory enjoyed a breakthrough season this year, making it all the way to the grand final on the back of some fine form from the likes of Jacob Burns, Liam Miller, Shane Smeltz, Steve McGarry and Bas van den Brink.

But Perth were left gutted in the decider after Roar striker Besart Berisha won a controversial stoppage-time penalty to give Brisbane a 2-1 win.

McGarry and defender Scott Neville are still weighing up reduced offers from the Glory, who have embarked on a major cost-cutting mission.
