Sydney native Thomas Glover grew up playing football with local club Sutherland Sharks before leaving the side in 2014 to join English heavyweights Tottenham Hotspur.
Whilst in London, Glover played primarily in the academy sides, with the now 23-year-old becoming a regular fixture in the U18s team for the 2014/15 season, as well as making the occasional appearance in the U21s squad.
The next season, continued strong performances in the youth ranks earned Glover another contract at Tottenham. Throughout the ensuing period, Glover joined the first team for many match days, with the Australian serving as the understudy to veteran goalkeepers Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm.
At the end of the 2018/19 season, Glover was released from his contract and was signed by A-League outfit Melbourne City, where he debuted in a 4-0 victory against the Newcastle Jets. Later that season, Glover played in his first A-League Grand Final, where he was defeated 1-0 by Australian powerhouse Sydney FC. In this campaign, he was the July/August nominee for the competition’s Young Footballer of the Year award.
Glover debuted for the Australian U23s in 2017, and was a mainstay between the sticks throughout Tokyo 2020 qualification. He will make his Olympic debut at the Tokyo Games, playing alongside the Olyroos.
