Malcolm Glazzard now in US Forces

August 1, 1957
The former Liverpool reserve team inside forward, Malcolm Glazzard, is now visiting his parents in Suffolk Avenue, Ellesemere Port – as a G.I.

Although unfit for service with the British Forces, after he had gone to America two years to take up an insurance post at Los Angeles he was drafted into the US Army, posted to Germany, and came home on leave this week to attend his sister’s wedding.

He was accompanied by his wife, a Birkenhead girl, whom he married in America, and their four-months-old son.

After leaving Liverpool Glazzard played for Accrington Stanley and Macclesfield and is still on the retained list of the Cheshire League club and is prevented by FIFA rules from playing for local sides in Germany, although his services have been sought.

In America, he assisted Los Angeles Scots and played against Los Angeles Danes, who are managed by the former Liverpool full-back, Bernard Ramsden.

Their star is the former international inside forward Billy Steel, and none of the “Danes” are Scots!
