Perth Glory launch FFA Cup kit

Perth Glory have revealed their new strips to be worn in this season's Westfield FFA Cup competition.

The new kits will be worn when Glory travel to NSW to take on the Newcastle Jets on Tuesday night in the Round of 32.

Goalkeeper Jerrad Tyson, defenders Anthony Golec and Josh Risdon modelled the new playing strip on Friday.

Risdon, a born-and-bred West Australian, said he took great pride in wearing any Perth Glory jersey, but singled out the FFA Cup jumper for special praise.

“Obviously wearing the Glory purple is special, it’s my club and I’m proud to consider myself a part of it but this kit represents more than just Perth Glory,” he said.

“It represents WA as a whole, its people, its towns and city – everything that makes this state great and makes it our home. This really optimizes the unity behind our #WestvsRest call to arms”

Golec said he was looking forward to donning the kit in this year’s FFA Cup.

“I’m not from Perth or WA, but when you get here you realise that it is a special place full of special people like our members,” he said.

“To pull the shirt on and see that pride on display, that’s something I am really looking forward to.”

The Glory, who were finalists of the competition last season, will be aiming to go one better in 2015-16.
