Well travelled, experienced step two forward who re-joined the Pitmen in January 2016 from AFC Telford United

The son of Port Vale legend Dean Glover, Danny was a product of Vale's youth system and came through the ranks to sign his first professional contract at Vale Park in the summer of 2006. He was thrust into the spotlight as a youngster by his father - then manager at Vale - during the 2007-2008 season, with the eighteen year old playing fifteen games in Coca Cola League One for the club. Vale struggled to stay afloat at League One level and were relegated at the end of the season

Glover was one of a number of youngsters given a chance by Glover Senior the following season, but the teenager suffered from abuse from an impatient Vale crowd who accused him of only playing due to being the manager's son

With his father leaving the manager's position in the summer of 2009, Glover found himself put on the transfer list by new manager Micky Adams and was allowed out on loan at the start of the 2009-2010 season. He joined Salisbury City on a month's loan in August 2009, followed by a fruitless spell at Rochdale two months later

He finished the season on loan at Blue Square North strugglers Stafford Rangers before returning to Vale Park in May 2010, where he was released by the club he had been connected to since the age of eleven

He trialled for a handful of non-league clubs in the summer of 2010, with Blue Square North side Worcester City snapping him up after impressed in their pre-season programme. His first full season at St. Georges Lane was a resounding success, as he scored fourteen goals in thirty starts for the Dragons. He became the first City player during the season to score a hat-trick in four seasons in the process

He moved to Blue Square North rivals Nuneaton Town in the summer of 2011 and continued to plunder goals at step two level to lead Nuneaton to promotion via the play-offs in May 2012 with a twenty one goal haul

Rather than step up to the Blue Square Premier with Nuneaton, Glover elected to stay in the Blue Square North by rejoining Worcester in July 2012 on a contract. His second spell was perhaps slightly less prolific, as City struggled to a fifteenth place finish in the table. He was allowed to join FC Halifax Town in March 2013 on loan, helping them to a final play-off position and eventual promotion to the Conference Premier via the play-off final

Agreed a deal with Worcester to start the 2013-2014 season, with City initially struggling to find their feet at their new temporary home of Aggborough. After only three goals in twenty games, Glover left the club to join Bradford (Park Avenue) in January 2014; he played six games for the Yorkshire side before leaving to return to the Midlands to join the Pitmen, replacing the newly-departed Neil Harvey up front. He impressed many with his neat, clever play and ability to play team-mates into the game, scoring an astonishing goal in the play-off semi-final first leg against Altrincham

Agreed to extend his stay at Keys Park into the 2014-2015 season after signing a new deal with the Pitmen in June 2014 and started the season with a bang, grabbing a superb brace against Harrogate Town and a hat-trick against Hyde early on in the campaign

His form attracted interest from other clubs in the league, with Stockport County making the forward an offer he could not refuse in December 2014. However, he could not transfer his goalscoring form at Edgeley Park following the move, scoring only four times for County in twenty appearances

New manager Neil Young placed the striker on the transfer list upon his arrival at the club in the summer of 2015, allowing the player to join recently-relegated AFC Telford United in July 2015. His form at Telford reflected that of the side as a whole, as the Bucks struggled for form and goals and dropped to the foot of the table as a result. In December 2015, the player was suspended by Telford after it emerged that he had played three games for the Butcher's Arms in Stoke-On-Trent in August, breaking the terms of his contract with Telford. After being found guilty and fined 300 by the F.A., Glover was sacked by Telford for breach of contract. Frank Sinclair moved quickly to bring Glover back to Keys Park, making his return to the side in a 3-0 defeat to Curzon Ashton

His hard work and commitment was in evidence once more, although Danny couldn't find the goals to save the Pitmen from the inevitable relegation. However, he was offered a revised deal by new manager Liam McDonald, which he duly signed in May 2016. After starting the new season amongst the substitutes, Glover had a brief loan spell at Alsager Town, scoring a hat-trick on his debut in a bid to gain valuable match time, before returning to the Hednesford side and grabbing three in three games. His excellent form continued through September and October, with Glover joining George Carline at the top of the scoring charts after a double in the F.A. Trophy win over Stamford
