Huddersfield Town old boy Matt Glennon has become goalkeeping coach at AFC Emley.

And the 37-year-old former England semi-professional international, who has a hairdressing business in the village, will have a newly-signed player to work with.

That’s after Emley, of the Northern Counties East League First Division, brought in keeper Gary Stevens from Premier Division title winners Tadcaster Albion.

Stevens, who stands 6ft 3in tall, had a short spell at the Huddersfield club towards the end of the 2014-15 season.

At that time he was a stand-in for Adam Lawlor, now he has replaced last season’s keeper, who has joined Hepworth United.

Glennon, at Town between 2006-10, making 122 appearances, brings a wealth of experience, including plenty of non-league football.

The former Bolton Wanderers apprentice also played in the league for Hull City, Carlisle United, Falkirk, St Johnstone, Bradford City and Stockport County.

Glennon, whose stints at both Carlisle and Stockport included spells in the National League, then played for Chester and FC Halifax Town before joining Scarborough Athletic at the start of the year.

Now he will work alongside Emley manager Darren Hepworth, who has also signed Brighouse Town centre-back Adam Wilson and Pontefract Collieries midfielder Aaron Joseph, a former Emley player.

Last season’s 73-goal striker Ashley Flynn is staying while the side, who lost out in last season’s First Division play-off final, will be skippered by his fellow striker Kieran Ryan.

Huddersfield-based North Light Physiotherapy are also on board for the new season.

Their principal practice physio Chris Liversidge also works with Yorkshire County Cricket Club.

Current club physios John Mason and Joanna Dickens will continue with the team on match days, with North Light primarily working between games and at training.

Hepworth said: “Not many teams at our level of football have ready access to the knowledge and expertise that Chris and his associates will bring.

“This is a huge boost to the club.”
