Australian Football: Glory snap up speedster Hatch

Perth Glory have completed their second signing in as many days with the capture of speedy midfielder Matt Hatch on a two-year contract.

On Tuesday Glory announced the signing of Stefan Colakovski and now another exciting youngster is on board with the capture of Hatch, who moves on from the Central Coast Mariners.

Exciting challenge in Perth

The 21-year-old spent two seasons with the Mariners, making 20 appearances during that time, while he also chipped in with five goals.

Hatch, who can also play in defence, is widely regarded as the fastest player in the A-League, and is now looking forward to a fresh and exciting challenge in Perth.

“I’ve been thinking about it for a while now and decided that a change of scenery could really help me grow as a footballer and as a person and getting out of my comfort zone on the Central Coast would really push me,” he told the club’s website.

“I spoke to [Head Coach] Ruben Zadkovich and his vision for not only me, but for the club, really persuaded me on wanting to move to the West. I think he could really help me improve my football.”

Bags of potential

Head of recruitment Andy Keogh has also saluted the move and believes he is a player that will excite the Glory faithful.
“Matt is a fantastic young player with bags of potential.” Keogh added.
“His physical and technical attributes are fantastic and he is another huge asset to the club who we will be working hard with to develop.
“His goals-to-minutes ratio has been fantastic and something we intend to build on and everyone at PGFC is excited for Matt to arrive.”
