Rosslyn Park minis, the starting point for many a talented player, was where Harry Glover first played at the age of six with all the boyish enthusiasm took him into the England Sevens squad 13 years later. He moved on to Wasps where he played from the age of 14 to 19 and joined the England Sevens squad for 2015/16.
Harry, a Newcastle University student made his World Series debut in the Las Vegas tournament in March last year, scored his maiden try against Portugal in Vancouver the following week and also appeared in the 2016 Paris event. He bridged an 11-month gap between tournaments when providing injury cover as 13th man this April in Singapore, where he ran in a try in England’s 14-12 win over Australia in the Bronze medal final. He has now played in six tournaments, including those in Paris and London this May.
London-born and educated at Rokeby Prep School and Harrow, he’s a centre in the abbreviated game of sevens and represented Middlesex from U14 level through to the U18 side, having been swept along by his dad’s love of the game. Harry said: “He took me training from a very young age. My favourite player is Sonny Bill Williams because he is so exciting to watch.
“If I could invite three people to a special dinner party, they would be Sean Connery, Jordan Belfort, an American author and motivational speaker and Winston Churchill. I play golf in my spare time and have a pet dog called Barney.”
