Glen has been a familiar face at Ayr Rugby for more than two decades as a member, player and coach. In 2019 he joined on a full-time basis, predominately overseeing Ayr’s commercial operations as well as logistical and managerial duties.  During his tenure the club has gone from strength-to-strength bringing in a wealth of new sponsorship. He has also been key to positioning the club in the heart of the community with local partnerships and initiatives. A fruitful period of investment off the pitch was replicated with success on it – with Ayr winning a league and cup double and the Bulls a maiden FOSROC Super6 title during this time.


Speaking of his departure, President Drew Young said: “Glen will be sorely missed from Millbrae but we are equally delighted that he’s been given such a great opportunity. We wish him all the best and thank him for the tireless work he did for the club”.


Welcoming his appointment, Glasgow Warriors Manging Director Al Kellock, said: “Glen was the stand-out applicant in our recruitment process for the Head of Commercial. Particularly because of his successes growing Ayrshire Bulls’ portfolio of sponsors.


“He also brings a wealth of knowledge from his time working in the community game. This is a valuable asset as we strive to continue to have an impact in the lives of people in our city and across the west.”


Although no longer involved in an official capacity, Glen will still be spotted at Millbrae when free, cheering on both Ayr and the Bulls.
