Games that changed my life: Glen Taylor

We asked Moors striker Glen Taylor to pick out the games which have defined his career to date.

Coalville Town 2-3 Whitley Bay
8 May, 2011 FA Vase Final
“I signed for Whitley Bay knowing they’d won the FA Vase two years running, and at that stage I was cup tied. The final was hard as I couldn’t play, but seeing the lads lift the trophy again gave me huge motivation to hard work and hopefully be successful in my career.”
Whitley Bay 0-3 Ashington
1 May, 2013 Northumberland Senior Cup Final
“I’ll always remember this game as it was the first trophy I’d won in senior football. Although it was a local county cup, it was played at St James’ Park which made it a big deal. It left me wanting more moments of success playing in front of decent crowds!”
Rushall Olymipic 1-5 Spennymoor Town
10 September, 2016 Norther Premier League
“After being out most of the previous season and the manager bringing in new forwards, there were rumours of me leaving the club. But, injury meant I got my chance against Rushall and I scored a hat-trick. I’ve never looked back since at Spennymoor. That game certainly changed my career and my Spennymoor Town experience.”
Spennymoor Town 1-0 Stourbridge
29 April, 2017 Northern Premier League Play-Off Final
“It felt like a huge build up to the game, and we were all so desperate to win and get promoted to the National League North. Gouldy did his best early on saving three or four of my attempts, but he couldn’t do anything with Ramma’s handball volley! Another promotion and another trophy!”
Chorley 1-1 Spennymoor Town
12 May, 2019 National League North Play-Off Final
“Although we ran out losers in the end – and it was heartbreaking – nobody can take away that feeling I had from scoring the equaliser in extra time. It’s the best feeling I’ve ever had from scoring a goal and it was made sweeter because I scored it in front of my closest family and our amazing travelling supporters. Watching that goal back now still raises the hairs on the back of my neck!”
