College and amateur
Glinton grew up in Livermore, California, attended Livermore High School, played club soccer with the Silicon Valley Ambassadors, and played four years of college soccer at Bradley University. He scored 53 career goals at Bradley, including 15 in 1998 and 2000, was named to the All-Missouri Valley Conference First-team all four seasons (becoming first player in league history to earn first team honours four times), and was named his team's offensive MVP all four years. During his college years he also played with the Chicago Fire Reserves in the USL Premier Development League.
Glinton was drafted by Major League Soccer's Los Angeles Galaxy in 2002 before transferring to the Dallas Burn in 2003. His two-year totals include 44 games played with one goal and 4 assists. In 2004 he took a break from professional football to become assistant coach at his alma mater, Bradley University.
In 2006, he joined USL First Division team Charleston Battery for the 2006 season. After a successful season with the Battery where he led the team with 13 goals and was elected "Offensive MVP" by the fans, Glinton was called up by the Galaxy. He proved to be a great clutch player after the 2007 season. In the 2007 season, he was mostly used as a substitute by Galaxy coach Frank Yallop, where he scored 4 goals. Gavin followed Yallop to the San Jose Earthquakes when the coach selected him in the 2007 MLS Expansion Draft. The Earthquakes released him following the 2008 season. Glinton had an unsuccessful trial with League of Ireland side St Patrick's Athletic, in which he played against Chelsea Reserves in a 2–2 draw. In February 2009, he signed with the Carolina RailHawks in the USL First Division. He joined Nam Dinh FC of the V-League of Vietnam in March 2010.
Gavin Glinton plays for the Turks and Caicos Islands national team, and is their highest ever goalscorer with four goals. He scored one of the goals in the country's first ever win in a FIFA international over the Cayman Islands in a Caribbean Cup game in Cuba. He has earned eight caps in total, three of them in World Cup qualification games.
