“We’re delighted to have brought Ross and Jack back home. They are ECU boys and we’re taught the right way to play football in our academy and both have gone on to play at a good level in the game,” McCulloch said.

“It continues our re-build, we’ve had a number of players return this season and they are aware if they perform well then first team football is there for all of them.

“We have a very competitive under 20’s putting pressure on the first team squad, likewise the under 18’s players who can make the step up to 20’s, which bodes well for the new season.”

The coach was delighted with the pair in Saturday’s pre-season win at Forrestfield, and he believes they will give the squad a huge lift. “Ross has played a full season with Perth Glory in the National Premier League, and it showed on Saturday,” McCulloch said.

“He got forward well and defended well and he is a huge inclusion into our NPL squad. Jack has been out injured and is getting match fit, but once again a quality player and both players are also good of the pitch, and are the sort of player we want at our club, and I look forward to working with them.”
