Edward “Teddy” Glover

A defender who starred in both the original American Soccer League and the re-formed version in the 1930s.

Glover, who was a veteran of six seasons in the Football League in England, emigrated to the United States in 1928 and immediately began playing at the highest levels of American soccer. He was a member of the New York Giants team that won the 1931 ASL final in a dramatic second-leg comeback (which actually was played the first week of 1932)   and the New York Americans team that reached the U.S. Open Cup final in 1933. He finished his ASL career with six seasons for Brookhattan beginning in 1934, and then also played in the German-American League of New York for several seasons before retiring.

Inducted in 1965.
