VALE GLENN SCOTT
The Canterbury Rugby League community is mourning the loss of one of our game’s hardest-working and popular clubmen, Glenn Scott, who passed away after a brave battle with illness.
Glenn was an integral part of the Northern Bulldogs for many years, firstly as a junior and senior player with the club, before playing a vital role in their post-earthquake rebuild.
Eventually taking over as the Bulldogs’ president, Glenn oversaw a period of outstanding growth and success at the Kaiapoi-based club, including a Canterbury Cup title and a return to the Massetti Cup semi-finals in 2018. Glenn had stepped down from the role due to illness but was on hand at Ngā Puna Wai to see both Bulldogs sides feature on CRL Grand Final Day last season.
He also contributed immensely to local rugby league at a junior level, including coaching the Canterbury team to the NZRL 13s Nationals in Palmerston North in 2015.
Glenn was a recipient of a Waimakariri District Council community service award in November and was recently made a Bulldogs Life Member.
Canterbury Rugby League wishes to extend its heartfelt condolences to Glenn’s wife Jenny, their children Blake and Hannah, and Glenn’s family and many friends, and the Northern Bulldogs club. Glenn was universally admired for his warm nature, humility and determination – qualities he showed throughout his recent battle. He will be sorely missed.
