Glyn Oliver Myhill (born November 9, 1982), usually known as Boaz Myhill, is an American-born Wales international football goalkeeper, who plays for Hull City.
Born in Modesto, California, as the son of an American father and a Welsh mother from Llangollen, Myhill moved to England at the age of one. He attended the Marches School, Oswestry.
Club careerAston Villa
Myhill joined Aston Villa at the age of 12, working at Villa Park with Mark Bosnich, David James, Peter Schmeichel and Peter Enckelman.
In January 2002, a 19 year old Myhill was signed on a month's loan by Stoke City, to provide backup to their then first-choice keeper, Neil Cutler. Myhill was recalled by Aston Villa just a week into this loan period.
Following his spell at Stoke, Myhill spent a three month period on loan at Bristol City, where he was an unused substitute for 18 of City's 19 matches during the loan period. He missed Bristol City's Football League Trophy match with Queens Park Rangers due to a call up to England's Under-20 international side.
Myhill's first-team debut arrived whilst he was on loan in November 2002, to then First Division side Bradford City. On a forgettable afternoon at Valley Parade, Sheffield United scored five goals past the young keeper.
After a brief trial period, Myhill joined Macclesfield Town for a three month loan period at the start of the 2003-04 season.
Although Macclesfield boss David Moss was eager to extend Myhill's loan period after sixteen impressive appearances by the keeper, Myhill was loaned by Aston Villa to Stockport County at the end of 2003.
Hull City manager Peter Taylor moved quickly once it became apparent that Stockport County were lining up a permanent deal for Myhill. Considering Hull City to be a more appealing prospect, Myhill signed a two-and-a-half year contract with the Tigers on 13 December 2003 at cost of £50,000 to the East Yorkshire club.
Since signing for Hull, Myhill's progress has won over the Hull fans as he quickly became their first-choice 'keeper and played a key part in two back-to-back promotion seasons, which took Hull up from the old Third Division to the Football League Championship, missing only one league match in the 2004-05 season.
In the 2005-06 season, Myhill was again in fine form and again missed only one league game, through suspension after a controversial sending off for handling the ball outside his area in a game against QPR. In one memorable match at Stoke he saved two penalties, prompting chants of "Myhill for England" from the travelling fans. At the end of the season he was named as the club's Player Of The Year, and was the highest-ranked goalkeeper in FourFourTwo magazine's list of the top 50 Football League players. He was rewarded with a new, improved contract running until June 2008. Myhill signed a new three-year deal with Hull City in August 2007. He was part of the Hull City team which won promotion to the Premier League for the first time in May 2008, and along with teammates Ian Ashbee, Andy Dawson and Ryan France, joins an elite band of players to have taken their club up through four divisions.
Myhill made international appearances for the England Youth and England U20 teams, but this did not affect his eligibility to play for USA or any of the home nations. He was offered the chance to play for Wales in early 2006, but declined due to family reasons.
He was eventually called up for the first time for Wales on 17 March 2008 due to Wayne Hennessey returning to the U21 side in order to help them qualify from their group. He made his debut on 26 March, coming on as a halftime substitute for Lewis Price during a 2-0 win over Luxembourg.
