Biographical Text

Glen Crowe, from Dublin, had two loan spells with Exeter City in the late 1990s. He later played in the League of Ireland, most notably with Bohemians, and won two caps for the Republic of Ireland. 

Glen began his career with Saint Mochta's where he played as a schoolboy before moving to Lourdes Celtic. He then signed professionally for Wolverhampton Wanderers and scored on his first full game against Charlton Athletic in May 1996.

Playing a further four games for Wolves in autumn 1996 Glen was first loaned to Exeter City in February 1997 and, after scoring on his debut against Darlington, was an immediate success as he netted 5 goals in 10 league matches. Finishing the 1996/97 season in Wolves’ first-team, Glen joined Cardiff City on loan in October 1997 before returning to Exeter City on a similar basis in August 1998 when he was to make nine league appearances without scoring. Back in Devon the following February, when on loan with Plymouth Argyle, he was eventually released by Wolves in May 1999.

Returning to Dublin in the summer of 1999, he joined Bohemians where in 2000/01 hit 25 league goals (35 in all competitions) as Bohs won a first league title since 1978 and a first league and FAI Cup double since 1928. Glen then became the first League of Ireland player to be capped by Ireland for sixteen years in November 2002 when he played against Greece before winning a second cap against Norway. He moved Shelbourne in December 2004 before rejoining Bohemians in early 2007 and going on to become the club’s all-time record league goalscorer.

Subsequently Glen signed for Sporting Fungal in 2010 ahead of spells with Malahide United and St Mochta’s where he had started his career. After helping St Mochta’s to the top division of the Leinster Senior League he became part of the club’s coaching staff.
