Conor Glass Biography

Wednesday, 23 September 2020
Conor Glass calls time on his 21-game AFL career, making the decision to return home to Ireland.

"Conor has spent four and a half years at Hawthorn and has been totally committed to his AFL career the whole way through," Hawks chief of football Graham Wright said.

"While he will be missed around the club, the pull home has always been there for Conor and we fully support his decision."

After two impressive showings for the Hawks, Conor Glass says he is enjoying the AFL experience at his new club.

"It's pretty surreal but I'm just taking each game as it comes," he said.

"Playing at the MCG was unbelievable - Friday night lights against Sydney, it couldn't get any bigger than that."

In doing so, he will become the first player recruited from Ireland to play for the Hawks.

Wednesday, 4 May 2016
Hawthorn's Irish recruit Conor Glass says he doesn't have issues kicking an AFL football but predicts it will be some time before he debuts.

Glass told the Derry Journal that Gaelic football does not share many similarities with Australian football.

"It is quite different to be fair. The kicking style is fine. People talk about the shape of the ball but once you get used to it, there is no problem," he said.

"The stop-start nature of AFL is a change, though. Gaelic football is very free-flowing, so that will be different."

Wednesday, 28 October 2015
Hawthorn has lured emerging Gaelic football star Conor Glass into the AFL system, signing the 18-year-old as an international category B rookie.

Glass visited the Hawks' Waverley base three times for blocks of training, helping the lean 189cm prospect adapt to the foreign game.

"The kicking's come fine, and all the attributes like the running and the tackling, but it's just more the style of the football," Glass said.

"It's getting used to the type of the play and the stoppages. Gaelic's more free-flowing, but AFL's more stop-start, with clearances and stuff like that so that's probably the most different bit about it.

"The first couple of years I just want to fit in and experience the life of an AFL footballer.

"Hopefully I can play VFL and play consistent football and keep on improving on my skills. Hopefully I get an alright contract extension … I really want to be a consistent AFL player."
