After playing four years of collegiate soccer at Division I Rider University, Perrella went on to get his Master’s from Durham University in England. While playing for non-league side Durham City A.F.C., he was scouted by Newcastle United F.C. when Durham played the Newcastle United Reserves and won 2-0 with Perrella keeping a clean sheet in an outstanding performance. This led to trials with Newcastle United F.C. in England, Udinese Calcio in Italy, LB Châteauroux in France, FK Daugava Rīga in Latvia and APOEL FC in Cyprus. In the US, Perrella spent time with the Carolina Railhawks (now North Carolina FC) and Sporting Kansas City. In 2016, Perrella signed with Bethlehem Steel FC. On August 10, 2017 Perella signed with Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL on a contract for the remainder of the season.
