Perth Glory are keen to build a new elite training facility in Duncraig where they can house their A-League, W-League and Youth teams.

Perth Glory have moved a step closer towards establishing a new high performance training and administration base after deciding to enter formal discussions with the City of Joondalup.

The Glory’s A-League, National Premier League, National Youth and W-League teams are all currently housed at separate locations around Perth, but the club is keen to bring them all together.

Perth Glory and the City of Joondalup will now develop a Memorandum Of Understanding to explore the potential for Percy Doyle Reserve in Duncraig to become the club’s future base.

Percy Doyle Reserve, situated about 20km north-west of the Perth CBD, currently houses the Sorrento Football Club, but the redevelopment would only take part on the southern portion of the reserve.

Glory chief executive Jason Brewer said an elite training and administration base would allow the club to better serve WA’s elite and junior footballers.

“The MOU would allow us to develop Percy Doyle Reserve into Western Australia’s most advanced and progressive elite football training base for the club and for the broader football community,” Glory chief executive Jason Brewer said.

Perth Glory have made a dream start to the A-League season, beating Wellington and Brisbane to sit on top of the table ahead of Sunday’s away clash with Adelaide.
