Playing career[edit]

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

Glover joined Tottenham's Academy full-time in the summer of 2014, he started 16 times for the Under-18s in the 2014/15 season and impressively produced a string of penalty saves throughout the season. He stepped up to make his Under-21s debut in a 2–1 defeat at Liverpool in October, 2014, and played twice in Tottenham's run to the FA Youth Cup semi-finals.

In 2015–16, he made 11 league appearances for the Under-21s, in addition to four appearances in the Premier League Under-21 International Cup. As a result of many impressive performances he signed a new contract with the Club in December, 2015, and was also part of the first team squad on matchdays on a handful of occasions, serving as back-up to Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm.[2]

On 26 July 2017, Glover joined Central Coast Mariners on a season-long loan.[3] He then went on to make his senior debut for the Mariners on 7 October 2017 in round one of the 2017–18 A-League season, a loss to Newcastle Jets in the F3 Derby.[4]

Glover had a trial spell with Scottish Premiership club Hibernian in January 2019.[5]

In April 2019, Glover was loaned to Helsingborg for a few months.[6]

At the end of the 2018–19 season Glover was released from his contract.[7]

Melbourne City[edit]

Glover returned to Australia and was signed by Melbourne City.[8] He made his debut in a win over Newcastle Jets in December 2019.[9]
