400 Glenn Poole
Position : Winger
Played : 2006-07 (on loan from Grays Athletic)
Appearances : 6
Goals : 0
Glenn's was a strange signing , an experienced Conference professional from the south of England; you wonder how he came to appear on our radar. He started out with Spurs but dropped into non-league with Yeovil then played for Redbridge and Thurrock before arriving at Grays. He had a decent goalscoring record for a winger.
Glenn only started one game for us and looked no better than average , a slightly built lad with no great pace or outstanding skill.
Surprisingly he then signed for Brentford and had a great season becoming their top scorer with 14 goals which total unfortunately included a screamer for a late equaliser at Spotland. As the guy in front of me said indignantly " He did nothing when he was here ! " Glenn fell out of favour the following season and was released as Brentford won promotion. He returned to Grays then switched to AFC Wimbledon halfway through the season. He moved to Barnet last summer and made 10 appearances scoring once but was released in January 2011 and is currently with Braintree Town.
