Glover goes yet again after rout

OFF TO BRADFORD: Danny Glover.

OFF TO BRADFORD: Danny Glover.

First published in Sport

BEING part of a team that has been on the receiving end of a 6-1 thrashing is not the greatest way to advertise your services as a player.

Yet that didn’t deter Bradford Park Avenue, who snapped up Danny Glover from Worcester just days after the club inflicted City’s heaviest defeat of the season.

It is the second time Glover has left Worcester in the aftermath of a drubbing as he also joined Halifax on loan last March in the wake of the Shaymen handing out a 5-0 tonking.

But these are just coincidences. Glover is a good player and, by his own admission, is at a loss to explain why he has struggled this season.

This, after all, is a striker who bagged 20 goals for Worcester during his debut season in 2010-11, repeated the feat for Nuneaton Town the campaign after and managed 10 on his return to the Blue and Whites last term.

He announced himself this season with a scorching volley against Altrincham at Aggborough but only went on to add two more goals, the last coming in the FA Cup replay victory at Rugby Town in October.

Manager Carl Heeley said: “I think Danny had tried everything.

“He wanted to do well for this club and for some reason it hasn’t happened.

“I don’t know why that is and Danny doesn’t know why that is. There might not be a reason, sometimes it happens.

“He’s been a super player for this club. We’re sorry to see him go and I’m sad it didn’t work but that’s football and we move on.”
