BIOGRAPHY

Brian Glover by Dave Dooley:
St.Helens-born, Brian began his rugby career as a hooker. He signed for Warrington in 1956 and became one of the most reliable wingers in the game, earning a Testimonial with the Wilderspool club. A Lancashire County threequarter, he was a try-scorer in Warrington`s 1965 Lancashire Cup Final victory over Rochdale Hornets. He also played in the 1967 replayed final when the Wires were beaten by the Saints. Brian joined his hometown team on a free transfer in 1970 and served the Saints well as a utility back, playing mostly in the centre. He moved to Rochdale Hornets in October 1971 and appeared against his former team-mates in the 1971 BBC2 Floodlit Final, which St.Helens won 8-2.

Fittingly, Brian made his debut for the Saints against the `Wires` on the 13th of October 1970 in a 37 points to 6 home league victory. In all he made 15 starts and four substitute appearances that season scoring eight tries along the way. His debut try for the club came in the 42 points to nil victory over Bradford Northern. This haul also included a brace as Brian used his substantial frame to help demolish Swinton by 40 points to nil. At the start of the 1971/2 campaign Brian featured in just two fixtures against Castleford and Wakefield Trinity before moving on to Rochdale Hornets.
