Football West, who oversee the management and conduct of the Perth Glory Women-s team, have released two players from the playing roster for the 2010/11 Westfield W-League season.
Norwegian Lisa-Marie Woods and New Zealander Emma Kete have been released and informed that they are free to return home or seek alternative opportunities with other clubs.
In citing breaches of discipline for their release, Football West Chief Executive Peter Hugg stated: “Athletes playing at this highest level of the sport are subject to public scrutiny and codes of behaviour and when these are broken and taken advantage of, it is necessary to act swiftly and fairly for the benefit of overall team harmony.
“Whilst performances on the park haven-t been as good as we all may like, we are in a stage of rebuilding a young squad following the injuries to Westfield Matildas Katie Gill and Sam Kerr, and the absence of national team vice-captain Collette McCallum, and we support Jamie and his efforts to implement a high performance environment where individual issues make way for the greater good of the team.”
Football West has informed Perth Glory and the FFA, and are investigating options for possible replacements at this late stage of the season.
No further comment will be made on the subject as the team prepares for a crucial home match on Saturday 10 December against Melbourne Victory at Inglewood-s 6PR Stadium at 4pm.
