Glenn Cronin (born 14 September 1981 in Dublin) is an Irish footballer who most recently played for Shelbourne in the League of Ireland Premier Division.

Club career[edit]

Exeter City[edit]

After sining from Irish junior club Cherry Orchard's well-regarded Youth Academy, Cronin made his debut in 2001, before going onto become a key part of Exeter's first team, playing in central midfield. Following the Grecians' relegation from the English Football League in 2003 he was made club captain, and despite injury problems that kept him out for much of the 2004/05 season.

Chester City[edit]

In July 2006, Cronin signed a contract with Football League Two club Chester City. He missed much of the 2006/07 season with a foot injury. After working his way to recovery, a further foot injury in July 2007 ultimately caused Chester to release him from his contract on 21 November 2007.[1]

Bohemians[edit]

Cronin signed for Bohemians on 27 February 2008[2] and slotted seamlessly into the side as Bohs marched to the 2008 Premier Division title. Cronin also added an FAI Cup winners medal as Bohs achieved the "Double" by beating Derry City on penalties after a 2–2 draw.[3] The 2009 season was also a successful one for Cronin when, firstly, the Gypsies won the League of Ireland Cup by beating Waterford United 3–1 at the RSC.[4] The success did not end there though as Bohemians won their first back-to-back titles in the club's 119-year history, beating rivals Shamrock Rovers by 4 points.[5] Despite winning the Setanta Sports Cup,[6] Bohemians had a disappointing 2010 season where the club lost their league title on goal difference and failed to make an impact in Europe where they made an embarrassing exit to Welsh side The New Saints. Cronin was one of the club's bright spots though as he had his best season at Bohs to date.

Shelbourne[edit]

Following financial cutbacks at Bohemians at the end of the 2011 season, Cronin departed Bohemians after four successful seasons to join newly promoted local rivals Shelbourne for the 2012 season.

Other[edit]

Cronin has represented the Republic of Ireland at youth and levels.
