David Glenn (born November 30, 1962) is a former English professional footballer who played as a full back. He played in The Football League for Wigan Athletic, Blackburn Rovers and Chester City.

Playing career

As a youngster Glenn represented Wigan schools at both football and rugby league and he joined the town's football club, Wigan Athletic, when he left school.[1] His league debut arrived as a 17 year–old substitute against Port Vale on September 6, 1980, in place of his future Chester City team–mate Peter Houghton.[1] The next three years produced more than 70 league appearances before he moved to Blackburn Rovers on a free transfer in August 1983.[1]

After failing to establish himself as a regular in the Blackburn side, Glenn rejected the offer of a new contract in the summer of 1985 and joined Fourth Division side Chester City.[1] He played his first game for the club in a 1–1 draw with Halifax Town on August 17, 1985, alongside fellow debutants Wakeley Gage, Milton Graham and Lee Harley, in Harry McNally's first game as Chester manager.[2] Glenn helped Chester win promotion in his first season at the club, scoring his only goal in a 3–2 win at Colchester United late in the season.[1]

That match marked Glenn's return from a two months out injured and knee injury problems would persist throughout the remainder of his time at Chester. He did not play a match between August 1986 and December 1987[3] and after struggling to regain his pre–injury form he requested a transfer in January 1989.[4] His final league appearance for the club, a 1–0 home defeat to Preston North End on April 22, 1989, was also his final Football League appearance, as he moved on to non–league side Fleetwood Town at the end of the season.[5]
