Player profile

Glassey scored after only five minutes of his debut match in Liverpool's first team against Preston North End at Anfield on 7 December 1935. He then added an even quicker strike in the first minute of the victory at Brentford a week later. He played eight times in the First Division during the 1935/36 season, scoring four goals in all. Glassey had only made one first-team appearance in the following season, on 26 September, when he broke his leg in a reserve game on the last day of October against Aston Villa. He left for first division Stoke the following month but struggled for a regular place at the Potters.
