Perth Glory re-sign Scott Jamieson

A-League leaders Perth Glory have re-signed combative left back Scott Jamieson for a further two years with the option of a third.

The Sydney-born defender is back to his best in the west after returning from an Achilles injury last year.

Under the deal, Jamieson could be at nib Stadium until the end of the 2017/18 season.

Clearly pleased with their latest piece of transfer business, Glory described the former Adelaide United and Sydney FC player as "one of the best left backs in the country".

“I’ve settled in well here in the past couple of years and I've always said Perth is a beautiful place so I'm very happy to be staying," Jamieson said.

"The team has made a great start to the season and my goal now is help the team to finish strongly at the top of the league, qualify for the Asian Champions League, but above all win the Premier's plate."

Glory are back in action on January 25 when they host Melbourne Victory in a top of the table clash.

Meanwhile Jack Clisby has been released by his hometown club to pursue other opportunities.

The 22-year-old, who has been a diehard Glory fan for all of his young life, signed with Perth in 2013, making a total of 28 appearances.

Clisby and Glory agreed to the immediate termination of his contract.

“First of all I’d like to thank the fans and supporters for their continued loyalty,” the young defender said.

“It’s been a difficult decision to leave a club at the top of the table but I feel this is the best for my career going forward.”
