Glover played for Barnsley and Yorkshire Schools and also played for the Rest of England against England Boys. His Junior football started with Regent Street Congregationals and he was signed by his native Barnsley in March 1935. A Wing Half he made his Second Division debut in a 2-1 away win at Stockport County on 15th January 1938, but could only manage four League games before World War Two brought Football League fixtures to a halt. A Left Half for the majority of his career, he played ten games for Barnsley in the War years one in the 1939-40 season, two in 1940-41, one in 1944-45 and six in 1945-46, and also guested with Bradford City, playing once in 1944-45, and Leeds United. His first game for the Peacocks came at Centre Half in a 1-7 drubbing at Roker Park by Sunderland in the first game of the 1943-44 Football League Northern Section (First Championship). His second and final game had a much better outcome when he played at Right Half in a 4-3 home win over Sheffield Wednesday in the 1944-45 Football League Northern Section (Second Championship) in March 1945. After the War Glover returned to Oakwell and played in several positions as the need arose but for the most time he favoured the Left Half position. However,later, in his last few years of his career, he also played Centre Half and Full Back. He scored five times in one hundred and eighty-two League games after the war to take his total to one hundred and eighty-six and he also played seven F.A. Cup ties. His career came to an end when he dislocated a hip in a Reserve fixture in the 1952-53 season. On retiring at the end of that season, he coached the club's Yorkshire League side for several seasons until retiring to concentrate on his pig and poultry business. He died in September 1998.
