Born: 24 December 1997 (Sydney, Australia)
Australian youth international goalkeeper Tom Glover spent the 2017-18 campaign back in his home country, on loan with A-League side Central Coast Mariners.
He started their first four games of the season but was thereafter utilised as their back-up keeper.
Tom joined our Academy full-time in the summer of 2014. Born in Sydney, he attended Menai High School in the Sutherland suburb of the city and previously played for the Sutherland Sharks youth teams. Tom was also a keen basketball player at school.
During 2014-15, he started 16 times for our Under-18s and impressively produced a string of penalty saves throughout the season. He stepped up to make his Under-21s debut in a 2-1 defeat at Liverpool in October, 2014, and played twice in our run to the FA Youth Cup semi-finals.
In 2015-16, he made 11 league appearances for our Under-21s, in addition to four appearances in the Premier League Under-21 International Cup, and was also part of our first team squad on matchdays on a handful of occasions, serving as back-up to Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm.
He played 11 times in the Premier League 2 in 2016-17 but was sent off in our last home fixture at that level against Leicester City in May, 2017. In doing so, with the match taking place at White Hart Lane just 10 days before the stadium's closure, he picked up the unfortunate title of being the last player ever to be shown a red card at our home of 118 years.
On the international scene, Tom has been capped by Australia at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-23 levels.
