Glebe ‘Smith-Rowe’ Tweet goes Viral!


SCEFL Premier Division leaders Glebe have been making noises across the football world this week with a tweet that celebrated the England debut of Arsenal’s Emile Smith-Rowe.

Smith-Rowe passed through the youth ranks at the Chislehurst-based club and the Tweet referenced how his footballing career started at Foxbury and then showed him coming on as a second half substitute for England against Albania on Friday.

At time of writing, the Tweet, posted on Saturday, had received almost 200 Retweets and has around 2,500 likes – including from Smith-Rowe himself and the official England Team account too!

Social Media is a great way of showing the good work that happens at our Clubs and Glebe have certainly hit the mark with this tweet!


Glebe FC were founded in 1995 by the present Chairman & his wife, Rocky and Grace McMillan.

From humble beginnings with just 1 Under 8 Team, the club has progressed to one of the biggest and most successful clubs in SE London / Kent area with over 300 locally based members. Today they host over 20 Junior Teams, a Ladies Senior Side and, of course, the First XI, managed by Harry Hudson, who play in the SCEFL Premier Division, as well as competing in the FA Cup and FA Vase competitions.

Lyle Taylor, Ethan Pinnock and Mitch Pinnock are among others that have received their grounding at the Club before heading on to League football in recent years.
