Glen Nissen  was a highly-liked utility at Belmore who gained a cult following at the club, particularly when he grew the fantastic beard seen below. He could generously be described as decent having scored 16 tries in 68 top grade games but it was the intangibles that made Nissen a player that the fans worshipped. He was always hustling away and bobbing up all over the field. His finest hour came in the 1988 Grand Final when he scored a handy try and set up Michael Hagan for the Bulldogs first try.

In 2004, Glen was nominated for the Berries to Bulldogs 70 Year Team of Champions.

In 1998 Glen earned a Bachelor of Education at the Australian Catholic University to become a Primary School Teacher.

In 2010 Glen gained his Cert 3 & Cert 4 in Personal Training to become a Qualified Personal Trainer with the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers.
