Whether playing as a half forward flanker, centreman or rover, Glenister was a consistent goalkicker for Geelong and bar his debut year when he played just two games never failed to kick 20 goals in a season. He missed Geelong's 1937 premiership due to injury and topped their goalkicking in 1939 with 36 goals. His best season tally however was 50 goals which he kicked in 1938. A Victorian interstate representative, he kicked five goals in a game against South Australia in 1939.
Glenister also played for Victorian Football Association club Coburg, crossing without a clearance in 1941 during the throw-pass era, before returning to Geelong in 1945 after his suspension for crossing without a clearance had ended.
Glenister's brother Harold played alongside him in the same team briefly.
