He had a loan spell with Exeter City in February 1997 and was an immediate hit as he netted 5 goals in 10 league matches. He was then loaned to Cardiff City where he scored once in 8 league games. Returning to St James’ Park for a second loan spell in August 1998, he played in another nine league matches, but didn’t find the back of the net. Later that season he was loaned to Plymouth Argyle where he scored once in eleven outings. Returning to Dublin in the summer of 1999, Glen joined Bohemians where he top scored in his first season.
