Glenn Kirkham

London 2012 will be Glenn’s second Olympics. He is one of four players in the selected 16 to have made more than 200 international appearances, a feat he has achieved over nine years since his debut against Belgium in 2003. He has been one of the most consistent members of the squad in recent years winning bronze, silver and gold medals in tournaments since 2009. Glenn studied Sports Science at Loughborough University (2:1) and has played club hockey at Long Sutton, Loughborough Students and most recently East Grinstead. When he is not playing hockey Glenn is a PE and games teacher at Perse School in Cambridge. A keen Tottenham Hotspur fan, he was named after Spurs legend Glenn Hoddle. He is married to Marie and they are expecting their first child in November.
