“I’m a football-crazy 22-year-old from Melbourne.
I grew up playing for and supporting South Melbourne in the old National Soccer League, where Perth Glory first became known to me due to the old rivalry.
I actually supported Perth for a while as my favourite player at the time, Con Boutsianis, made the transfer across.
I started really getting into FIFA in 2008 and from there it slowly took over from my actual aspirations of becoming a professional footballer.
After strong performances online, I decided in 2015 to enter the PS4 NPL FIFA Championship representing South Melbourne at the time.
I went on to win that tournament and collect $5000 in prize money, plus a ticket to the Fox Fans League where I finished in the top eight.
Staying on with South, I then qualified for the EA Sports Rest of the World Finals in Sydney last year, finishing in the top 16.
I also competed in the FIFA Interactive World Cup - Rest of the World Finals in Doha in 2017 where I was eliminated in the Semi Finals.
I’m really excited to be representing Glory in the e-League.”
“I’m from Sydney where I’m currently juggling my university studies in Information Technology with my FIFA competitive dreams.
My preferred formation is 4-1-2-1-2 and player-wise, I’m a big fan of Antoine Griezmann and Anthony Martial.
I can’t wait for the new e-League competition to start and I hope to do Glory proud.”
You’ll be able to see Peter and David in action during Rounds 1-9 of the season via a live stream at foxsports.com.au and should the guys go all the way, the Grand Final will be shown live on Fox Sports in addition to the live stream.
Twitch TV (twitch.tv), the popular live streaming video platform, will also be showing the games.
Glory face Wellington Phoenix in Round 1 on February 15, with the action set to get underway at 5pm (WST).
