Jess Cowart signs with A-League’s Perth

Jessika Cowart is set to embark on a new chapter in her career with Perth Glory in the Liberty A-League.

The Western Australian side announced on Tuesday that they have secured the versatile standout from the Philippine Women’s National Football Team for their 2023-2024 campaign.

The former University of Washington star made the move to Perth Glory from the Swedish side IFK Kalmar, where she had accumulated 17 appearances earlier this year.

“After multiple conversations with the coaching staff, I was impressed with their commitment not only to us as players on the field, but also as people off the field and that is a big reason why I signed for Glory,” said Cowart.

“I am highly impressed by the environment that has been built and it’s clear to me that this is a top organisation and I’m honoured to be a part of it,” she continued.

“The A-League is growing fast and furious and is a very competitive league. I hope to not only represent Perth well throughout the season, but also to help bring home a championship.”

Cowart has joined a club that finished in sixth place last season. Perth Glory secured eight victories, four draws, and suffered six losses, accumulating 28 points, just one point short of the top four playoff spots.

During the recent 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the former Washington Husky featured in all three of the Filipinas’ matches, alternating between roles as a center-back and defensive midfielder.

“Jess was a player who stood out to me during my time with the Philippines national team at the Women’s World Cup,” said Perth Glory coach Alex Epakis.

“She comes to us after a great personal experience from that World Cup campaign and past exposure to some strong competition from her recent time playing in the Swedish top division.”
