Perth Glory chief executive Scott Gooch has resigned from his position after two years with the club to take up a senior management position with the Fremantle Dockers.

During his tenure Gooch was instrumental in securing a new major sponsorship deal with QBE Insurance while he also conducted a major restructure of the club-s administration and football departments.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Perth Glory and it was an incredibly tough decision to leave during an exciting period for the club and the sport," Gooch said.

"I'll continue to be a strong supporter of Perth Glory and look forward to seeing the plans we have set in place come to fruition and have full confidence in the team to steer the club to the success we-ve all worked hard to achieve."

Glory owner and chairman Tony Sage thanked Gooch for his outstanding contribution to the club.

"Scott came to the club during a time of transition from the Football Federation to new owners and he diligently set about achieving our ambitious plans to reshape the club on and off the field," Sage said.

"He has set a solid foundation from which Perth Glory can continue to grow and prosper and I thank him for his hard work over the past few years."
