Perth Glory have been boosted by the news defender Daryl Lachman has penned a new deal to keep him at the club for the next two years.
Lachman has been a rock in the heart of the defence after arriving two years ago and has wracked up 51 appearances for the club already.
Lachman’s leadership was there for all to see during a tough 2021/22 campaign when Glory were without a host of experienced players due to illness and injury.
They ended up with the wooden spoon but after signing the new deal Lachman is determined to get the club back on track and pushing for silverware.
“When I signed my first contract two years ago, that was what I said; that I wanted to go for the Premiership, the title and that’s still my main goal,” he told the club’s website. “The Members and fans here have been massive and I want to thank them for that.
“I’ve really felt the love, especially over the last few months when most of the other older guys were injured and I was still playing. They got me through it and I also hope to pay them back with some better performances next season.”
Meanwhile Glory CEO Tony Pignata believes it is a big signing for the club as they look to get back on track next season.
“Darryl has been a model of consistency since joining us in 2020,” he said, “and retaining his services is a huge positive for the club.
“In addition to producing a high level of personal performance week-in, week-out, he has also been a very positive influence upon the young players who made up the bulk of our squad last season.”
