Glenn Poole was a talented young winger, who did not make it through to a professional contract with Spurs, although he went on to have a good career in the lower leagues.
Signed as a junior, starting as a first year trainee in 1997, Poole worked his way through the ranks, but when released by Tottenham, he joined Yeovil Town, then in the Conference. Although there was not a regular place in the side for the winger, he went out to nearby Bath City on loan and then signed for Ford United (now Redbridge FC), where he averaged a goal every three games. Local side Thurrock FC were impressed enough to sign him up on July 2004 and he played well in the Conference South, stepping up to Grays Athletic after one season at Ship Lane, where his lightning pace and goal-scoring attracted Brentford. The League Two side took him to Griffin Park on a free transfer and his play quickly made him a fans favourite, especially as he finished his first season as top goal-scorer for the Bees.
Earned a deal with Blue Square Premier club AFC Wimbledon in the 2009-2010 season after being released by Brentford, but was let go at the end of that season. Joined Barnet, scoring on his debut, but was released at the end of January 2011, so he signed up with Braintree Town and then continued his tour of Essex clubs by moving on to Thurrock.
In December 2011, Glenn signed for Billericay Town, who he helped to become Ryman Premier League champions in the 2011-12 season and after a four year stay, moved around the Essex non-league scene with a number of other clubs.
