Glory sign young guns and A-League veteran

Glory midfielder Steven McGarry has re-signed with Perth for another season, while the son of new coach Alistair Edwards has also penned a deal with the A-League club.

Cameron Edwards has joined fellow youth international Jack Duncan as new arrivals at the Glory on two-year deals.

Edwards is a former Glory youth player who made his senior debut for the club in 2011, when he came on as a substitute against the Wellington Phoenix.

The 21-year-old then spent more than a year with English Premier League side Reading, before joining Melbourne Heart on a short-term deal last season.

Duncan, 20, was the Newcastle Jets' back-up goalkeeper last season, and is highly rated by Australia's top coaches.

"Cameron was a former Joey and under-20 international, and Jack is a current representative for the Young Socceroos," Alistair Edwards said.

"The squad is coming along nicely.

"The recent additions are in line with generating the appropriate balance between our excellent experienced players and the up-and-coming youth.

"Alongside recent signings Danny De Silva, Riley Woodcock and Matty Davies, they form an important part of the strategic squad regeneration."

McGarry has notched 88 games for the Glory since arriving in Perth in 2010 and, last month, took out the club's Most Glorious Player award.

The versatile midfielder turns 34 later this year, but said age was no barrier.

"People think in terms of football - when you reach the age of 35 - you're finished," said McGarry, who spent more than a decade in the top tiers of Scottish football with St Mirren, Ross County and Motherwell.

"But people like Ryan Giggs, Alessandro Del Piero and even Jacob Burns have proved them all wrong.

"Realistically, it's coming up to the last stage of my career, but I'm feeling fit, feeling great and I'm playing the best football of my career.

"I'm also looking forward to playing a larger role in the team to help guide the youngsters that coach Alistair Edwards is recruiting."
