23yo Glory striker departs club in pursuit of game time: ‘Would be wrong to stand in his way’

Perth Glory have confirmed striker Adam Zimarino has departed the club via the mutual termination of his contract.

Glory confirmed the 23-year-old is in pursuit of more game time after making just two substitute appearances in the 2023-24 Isuzu UTE A-League campaign.

Zimarino, who made his competitive debut for the club in a 2021 FFA Cup (now Australia Cup) play-off against Melbourne Victory, went on to make 25 Isuzu UTE A-League appearances in purple.

Sixteen of his league outings came in the 2022-23 season under then-head coach Ruben Zadkovich but a drop-off in opportunities in the first team last season has led to his move away from the club.

Glory Football Director Stan Lazaridis said it would be wrong to stand in the way of the young striker after he expressed his desire to pursue a new opportunity.

“We would like to thank Adam for his service to the club,” Lazaridis said.

“He’s a cracking individual and we had an honest conversation about his future.

“He needs game time and we can’t promise him that, so it would be wrong for us to stand in his way.

“On behalf of all our members and fans and everyone associated with the club, I would like to wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.”
