Glyn Hodges (born 30 April 1963 in Streatham, is a Welsh football manager and former player. He played 18 times for the Welsh national side, scoring twice.

Hodges started his playing career with Wimbledon and made more than 200 appearances for the Crazy Gang during seven years at the club. He had a brief spell with Newcastle United before returning south to join Watford in 1987 to reteam with ex-Wimbledon manager Dave Bassett.

He made over 100 appearances at Vicarage Road, enjoying four years at the club, and being voted Player of the Season in 1989, before joining Crystal Palace in 1991. His spell with the Eagles was short lived and the winger moved to Sheffield United and linked up once again with Bassett.

Hodges' five years at Bramall Lane were successful and he made more than 150 appearances for The Blades before moving to Derby County for a brief spell in 1996. After a year in Hong Kong with Sing Tao (football), Hodges returned to England for a brief spell at Hull City. However, a big club clause in his contract allowed a move to Nottingham Forest to link once again with Bassett as a potential coach. However, an injury crisis at the start of the 1998/99 season meant Hodges was drafted in as a player. Brief spells at Total Network Solutions and Scarborough followed before Hodges hung up his boots in 2000.

The former Dons man arrived at Barnsley in August 2000 to link up with his old friend Bassett again. His work with the reserves had seen the side regularly challenge for honours both in the league and cup.

He was appointed caretaker manger for the first time back in October 2001 following the dismissal of Nigel Spackman and was in charge for just four games before Steve Parkin left Rochdale to take over The Tykes.

Parkin's tenure lasted just nine months as he was dismissed, with the club going into administration following their relegation to Division Two. Hodges again became caretaker manager and remained in charge for the remainder of the season up until the summer of 2003. Then, with the club in desperate trouble financially, Hodges was replaced by Gudjon Thordarson, who was part of the consortium that took control of the club in June 2003.

In early 2004, Glyn Hodges joined Mark Hughes in the Wales International set-up, becoming Wales Under 21 manager. Despite making "positive strides," Glyn was removed from his role by John Toshack's shake up of the Football Association Wales staff in December 2004

Glyn has represented Sheffield United in the 2006 Yorkshire Masters.

Glyn then rejoined his former boss, Mark Hughes, as Blackburn Reserve team manager. In July 2008 Glyn announced he was to leave Blackburn Rovers whereupon, after a month of delays, he followed Hughes to Manchester City, being appointed again in the role of Reserve Team Manager. However he became unemployed on 19 December 2009 when Mark Hughes and his complete backroom staff were relieved of their duties at the club.
