Perth Glory have signed goalkeeper Nick Feely to their 2016/17 A-League squad.
The 24-year-old Young Socceroo had a short-term contract with Glory last year and played in the FFA Cup match against Lions FC, saving a penalty for Perth.
Feely returned to the sport last year after a three-year hiatus to complete an engineering degree.
He initially asked the club for some training time, not expecting to be given a second chance.
"Yeah it does (feel like a second chance) because it's three years out of the game and possibly this would be the only club that would give me a second chance," he said.
"I know a lot of the staff and the players here, I picked up the phone and called Kenny (Lowe) and asked can I come down and train initially."
The son of former Chelsea, Bournemouth and Sheffield Wednesday striker Peter Feely, Nick Feely played senior football at Subiaco and Cockburn before joining Scottish football giants Celtic as an 18-year old, where he won the Scottish Youth Cup and the U-19 premiership.
He will join the Glory squad for pre-season training at the end of the month.
