I am afraid I can’t talk about gaining international honors, winning championships or scoring goals in front of 80,000 fans……….In that I am not alone, most of us can’t….however being one of Sir Bobby Charlton’s first signings at 15 years of age in his one and only stint as a manager [He left the club shortly after!], losing Nobby Stiles’ false teeth, my starry eyed ambition, hundreds of reserve and youth team games for Preston North End FC, amassing two and a half league games for Wigan Athletic and a trudge through the Semi-Pro game is just as interesting. It is also probably closer to reality for the majority of us no matter on which side of the Atlantic we reside.
Over the past few years I have been asked to speak at high school award banquets, AGM dinners, club events and company picnics. I was the key note speaker, or “entertainment” as they billed me, at the Soccer Association for Youth [SAY] 40th year anniversary celebration in front of 300 guests and the motivational speaker at a Chevrolet Garage employee picnic with 14 people in attendance……..I have given bigger team talks!!!!
“Glen’s self-deprecating humor had our members roaring with laughter” Sheila Shay, Executive Director, SAY Soccer
“Not everyone with an accent played at Wembley Stadium or even played pro…….Glen brings reality, humility, and lots of humor to his insight into the game”……..Anonymous Chevrolet Garage Employee.
If you are looking for a speaker for your event, call today as I am in great demand and would hate you to be disappointed!!
