Former Huddersfield Town and Hull City keeper Matt Glennon will make a one-off apparance in goal for AFC Emley on Saturday.

The thirty eight year old announce his retirement after his release from FC Halifax Town in May 2016.

Glennon is now goalkeeper coach with the club and he will be in goal for their home game against Brigg Town on Saturday, replacing the suspended Graham McLachlan.
The vastly-experienced keeper spent time with the likes of Stockport County and Falkirk during his playing career and seemed to have brought down the curtain on his time between the posts with a one-off appearance for Scarborough Athletic last season.

But now Glennon, who has been capped twice by England ‘C’, will take his place in the AFC Emley line-up for the Toolstation Northern Counties East League game on Saturday.

The club confirmed that Glennon, who now runs the barbers in the Emley, will also sponsor the game.
