Defender named Glory's Player of the Season

Defender Shane Lowry has been named Perth Glory’s Hyundai A-League Player of the Season at the club’s annual awards on Friday night.

The former Socceroo claimed the ‘Most Glorious Player’ honour after a superb campaign at the heart of the Glory defence.

In an inconstant campaign riddled by injuries, Lowry was a rock for Kenny Lowe’s side and made 20 appearances for the WA outfit, scoring one goal.

Lowry’s honour ends the dominance of Spanish star Diego Castro, with the midfielder winning back-to-back player of the season awards in recent years.

The 28-year-old completed the double for the Glory after also being named the Players’ Player of the season.

Adam Taggart claimed the Golden Boot as the club’s top goal-scorer with nine goals, while Sam Kerr was named Glory’s W-League Player of the Season.
