1 Senior club appearances and goals
Hurst started his career as a Tottenham Hotspur apprentice, but could not break into the first team. He joined Barnsley in 1994, where he was sent out on loan to many clubs including Swansea City, Scarborough, and Mansfield Town.
Since then he has played for Ayr United and Stockport County, and was even top goalscorer for Chesterfield with 20 goals in all. After Chesterfield, Hurst played for Notts County where he was the club's top goalscorer with 15 goals in the 2004-05 season.
Despite having scored nine goals in the 2005-06 season, Hurst was released from his Notts County contract on December 29, 2005, joining Shrewsbury days later. After scoring on his Shrewsbury debut against cross-border rivals Wrexham, Hurst scored twice more in fifteen further matches before the season's end. An injury-hit pre-season saw Hurst have back and achilles problems and lose his place in the team at the start of 2006-07.
By late September he had yet to return to the first-team, and as a result Shrewsbury sent him on loan to Bury for a month, in the hope of his regaining match fitness and goalscoring form.
Hurst's Bury debut saw him hit two goals against Barnet in a 2-2 draw. After accumulating five goals in five league games, on 26 October 2006, the loan was extended until January 2007. An undisclosed transfer fee has been agreed for Hurst who, in the January 2007 transfer window, signed a permanent contract lasting until the end of 2007-08. note. On the 18th of May, it was announced that Glynn has been released by Bury at the end of his contract.
Despite being linked with a move to Wrexham F.C. and playing a couple of pre season friendlies for Chester City, Glynn eventually signed for non-league outfit Gainsborough Trinity, scoring on his debut. In December 2009 he joined Hyde United, and in February 2010 he became their assistant manager.
