Glynn Snodin - Sheffield Wednesday Midfielder

 

Playing career

He started his professional career at Doncaster Rovers as a 16-year-old in 1977 and remained with the club until June 1985 as they moved up and down between Division's 4 and 3. At Doncaster he made over 300 appearances, many of them alongside his younger brother Ian.

 

In June 1985 he was sold for ¬£135,000 to First Division¬†Sheffield Wednesday, where he stayed for two seasons, playing 59 league games, and also reaching the¬†FA Cup¬†semi-final in 1986, before taking a move down a division to¬†Leeds United¬†(for a fee of ¬£150,000) from a desire to rejoin former boss¬†Billy Bremner¬†from his Doncaster days.¬†A whole-hearted and dependable player, he scored 13 goals in 116 appearances for Leeds, but found his chances limited by the arrival of¬†Tony Dorigo. By the 1989‚Äď90 season he was a fringe player as Leeds gained promotion to Division 1.

 

He then had periods on loan to¬†Oldham Athletic¬†and¬†Rotherham United, before to Scotland to join¬†Joe Jordan's¬†Hearts¬†in March 1992. During his time at¬†Tynecastle¬†he scored once in the¬†UEFA Cup¬†against¬†Slavia Prague, to give Hearts a 4‚Äď2 victory which saw them progress 4‚Äď3 on aggregate. When Jordan left Tynecastle, Snodin returned South to join¬†Barnsley¬†in July 1993, spending two seasons in the First Division, before a move to¬†Gainsborough Trinity, where he saw out his final playing years with the club, retiring in the summer of 1997.

His brother was a better player by far, but we wouldn’t pay the money.

My auntie used to work for him or his brother I forget which. One of them had a factory in Denaby Main.
