John William Glover (28 October 1876 – 20 April 1955), also known as Jack Glover, was an English professional footballer who played as a right back.

Born in West Bromwich, Staffordshire, Glover made 175 appearances in the First Division for Liverpool and Small Heath (later Birmingham), and in the 1900–01 season won the league championship with Liverpool. He was a strong-tackling defender and formed an excellent full-back pairing with Frank Stokes at Birmingham.

Glover played for the Football League representative team and played in England trials, but was not selected for the national team. After retiring from football he kept a public house in Dudley, Worcestershire, and also represented Shropshire at bowls. He died in Dudley at the age of 78.
