"I started my rowing at Glasgow Schools in 1953. It was a great sport and gave me many friends and fond memories. I recently came back down to the boat-club when my grandaughter decided to take up the sport as part of her school rowing programme. It brought back great memories to see so many young people rowing and enjoying their sport."
Lawerece Taylor - Allan Glens 1953
