Glenn Molloy played his early football with Fairview Park Primary School, and was recruited by Norwood from the Hope Valley Football Club. 
Molloy made his senior debut for the Redlegs in the 1990 pre-season Foundation Cup series. He played 14 games the following year. By 1992, Molloy had established himself as a regular league footballer, making 23 appearances for the season.
A strong overhead mark, he was capable of playing at either end of the ground, but was used mainly as a defender at league level.
Recruited by the Melbourne Football Club under the father-son rule in 1992, Molloy moved to Victoria in 1993 and played 20 games between 1993 and 1996. He made his VFL debut against Carlton in round 10, 1993. Later in the year he played in a Melbourne Reserves premiership with future Norwood coach, Peter Rohde, as one of his team-mates.
In 1994, a knee injury saw him miss games early in the season, but he returned to play in that year's final series.
Aggressive and versatile, Molloy struggled to play regular senior football in his four seasons with the Melbourne Demons.
Molloy returned to The Parade for the 1997 season. Playing as a forward alongside Jim West, he kicked 41 goals for the year and was part of a memorable Grand Final victory against arch-rivals Port Adelaide at Football Park. He played 21 games in 1997 and reached his 50 game career milestone for the club.
His father Graham played 76 games for Norwood and in 1969 won the Tassie medal, before deciding to transfer to the Melbourne Football Club. Older brother Robert, was a prominent junior footballer, kicking 121 goals for the Norwood under 17s in 1984, and 88 goals for the under 19s in 1986.
