“The Norwood Football Club has been informed that Josh Glenn was today handed a suspended sentence by the Adelaide Magistrates Court following an assault charge from an incident which occurred prior to Josh joining our Club.
The Norwood Football Club does not condone violence of any kind. As with all legal matters, we respect the legal process in relation to the charges against Josh.
Josh joined the club in March this year after the Executive, Board and Player Leadership Group went through a process to determine if Josh was a suitable fit for the team and committed to his return to senior level football. In May this year an assault charge was laid.
We would like to reinforce that the Norwood Football Club is unequivocally committed to supporting and nurturing players coming into our club.
Since joining Norwood, Josh has been provided with ongoing professional counselling and mentoring to assist both his personal and football development which he has embraced.
We will continue to have discussions with Josh about how we can support him moving forward.
The Club will make no further comment at this time.”
