Hailing from the Scottish Borders town of Jedburgh, Glen Young started playing rugby in primary school playing primarily at full-back before moving into the pack at the age of 16. The Borderer first played a part in the Falcons Under 18s side in the 2012-13 season, during which he also made several appearances for the club's A Team. The following season saw Young become an A-Team regular whilst maintaining dual registration with Darlington Mowden Park. In 2014-15 he made his first team debut while also representing Scotland Under-20s for the first time in their game against Ireland. He would go on to receive seven caps at Under 20 level, including a trip to New Zealand as part of Scotland’s Junior World Championship squad in 2014. Having signed a contract extension with Newcastle Falcons midway through that season, 2014/15 represented Young’s first as a full time member of the Falcons' senior academy. Hailing from Melrose, the heartland of 7s rugby, Glen Young featured for Newcastle Falcons in the Premiership Rugby 7s in both 2013 and 2014.
