Glenn Cockerill (born 25 August 1959) is an English retired footballer who played more than 700 games in The Football League in a 22-year career. He is perhaps best remembered from his eight-year spell at Southampton. He was a skilful central midfielder renowned for his passing and shooting skills.
Cockerill began his career at non-league Louth United, and made his name in the professional game at Lincoln City. He also played for Swindon Town and Sheffield United before joining Southampton in October 1985. In eight seasons with the club his playing record was: League, 272 appearances + 15 as substitute, scoring 32 goals; FA Cup, 20 + 2 as substitute (2 goals); League Cup, 36 + 1 as substitute (5 goals); other, 12. He left the Saints in December 1993, having made 358 appearances for the club in all competitions, and later spent three seasons at Leyton Orient, before finishing his career with spells at Fulham and Brentford.
