Golec who made his A-League debut at just 18, said that under Lowe, Glory showed the club was a force to be reckoned with.

“This year they were fantastic, they played great football and to finish only three points behind the champions (Melbourne Victory) was a great achievement," he added.

Lowe said Golec, who played for the U-20 and U-23 national teams, was a great acquisition for the club.

“He’s got a good pedigree, played for two top clubs in Australia, he’s versatile and has played in an Asian Champions League final, so that tells you what kind of player he is."

Golec, is due to arrive in Perth next month, before he joins the team for pre-season training in mid-June.
