The young Glory product fans are backing

-

Perth Glory have endured a difficult start to the 2019-20 W-League season but fans are sticking by their side, and are looking to the future for inspiration.

At each of the club’s first three home games the crowd has made the most noise not after goals or saves, or even Kim Carroll’s equalising header.

The biggest cheer of each game is reserved for Hana Lowry.

16-year-old Lowry is as slight as a footballer can be and has a reserved personality that in no way reflects her prolific talent. Not to mention she’s appeared in all three home games this season.

For the Glory faithful it’s hoped this is merely a first-hand look at the club’s next attacking weapon.

“It’s a dream come true, playing for the Glory” Lowry said.

“The crowd has been so good, they’ve been very supportive and I haven’t been too nervous because everyone’s been so positive.”

Last week Lowry came on after 64 minutes with her side 1-0 down. Olivia Price and Camila had dominated the midfield battle for Canberra United and the travelling side had just had a series of chances.

As she had done in previous weeks, Lowry brought energy to her team, pressing hard and regularly winning the ball in the middle of the park.

“Even though I’m a bit younger I try and make an impact on the game and win the ball back and keep fighting” Lowry said.

The ambitions her adoring fans have for her may be a bit further advanced than the incredibly grounded Lowry has for herself, and Lowry didn’t feature in Glory’s 1-0 loss to Melbourne City overnight.

“Becoming a starter would be my first goal and also to score a goal would be amazing, that’s definitely a goal I’ve set for the season.”
