Perth Thai-breaker: Keogh links up with new teammates

Striker Andy Keogh has linked up with his new teammates at Ratchaburi FC after exiting Perth Glory.

The A-League outfit said they were unable to match an offer tabled for the Irish international and officially terminated his contract this week, with one year left to run.

The 29-year-old’s departure, along with the loss of Jamie Maclaren, has left Glory with a massive headache to try and boost their firepower before the start of the 2015-16 A-League season.

Chairman Tony Sage said the Irishman and the club had parted ways amicably.

“We’re sad to see Andy go and he isn’t happy he’s going either," Sage said.

"I know he is going to miss Perth a lot but I’m confident this isn’t the last time we see him in a Perth Glory jersey. We wish him well on his next football adventure."

Meanwhile, another Aussie player has made a switch in Thailand.

Second tier Phuket FC unveiled former A-League defender Trent McClenahan, 30, who was signed from relegated PTT Rayong.
