About Glenn:


I spent my first year coaching at CJFC in 2015/16. I am still not entirely sure how I went from being a dad shivering on the side line to the bloke in the middle of it all. Having not been involved in football for much of my adult life (and never, ever having contemplated the possibility of being a football coach), I’ve fallen back in love with the beautiful game. Why? Because once again I can see football through the eyes of a child. I can honestly say that, whilst it’s not always plain sailing, that hour or so on a Saturday morning, when I can be part of their world, to laugh, play, have fun, kick a ball, is the highlight of my week, and my life is all the richer for it.

As for the rest of my life, that’s spent, in no particular order, being a nutritionist, author and a dad.
