An abundantly talented and highly damaging player who rarely played badly Glenn Lovett was unfortunately prevented by injury from playing more than 127 games in 13 seasons. Extremely versatile, he could play at both ends of the ground as well as in the midfield, but he probably produced his best football as a hard working and eminently constructive on-baller. A career highlight was winning the Demons’ best and fairest award in 1992 while the following year he arguably performed even better, running second in the club’s best and fairest count, representing Victoria and finishing as runner-up to Geelong’s Garry Hocking in The Age’s Footballer of the Year award.

After retiring from football Glenn Lovett embarked on a highly successful business career.
