Hello, I'm Scott Glynn, and this is my true story!

Rugby is my passion, and I cut my rugby teeth at Preston Lodge, not far from the small fishing village of Port Seton where I was born and brought up. I moved from P.L. to Ross High R.F.C. in Tranent, where I became the president for 10-years, bringing the club from the brink of closure to a now thriving community club with it's own development officer (the first in Scotland). In 2016 (at the grand old age of 53) I retired from playing rugby on a high, when I had the privilege of being part of the Scottish Legends and The Crusaders charity team, beating the Wasps Legends, and ending their 7-year unbeaten record.

My local community means the world to me, and I make an effort to give my time whenever I can. I run a Sporting Memories Group for dementia and stroke sufferers, and I was elected as chairman at the Recharge Youth and Community Facility which is a fantastic small charity working with young people in East Lothian. In 2016, I felt very humbled to receive the Forth Local Hero award... such a great honour to be nominated.

During the past few years, I've dedicated a lot of time to my 'Walk With Scott' charity. Basically it involves a large group of friends walking 57 miles between six local rugby clubs, playing a game of rugby at each one... all in just 2 days!

In March 2017 I was given only a few months to live after being diagnosed with liver cancer, unless a donor could be found... Luckily, I received my transplant in the October, and just seven months later I was fit enough to raise some money by doing a 30 mile sponsored walk. Now, I put a lot of my energy into promoting organ donation and well being, and I regularly speak in public about post transplant health and fitness, and I also talk to patients in hospital awaiting transplants, which (hopefully) encourages positive thinking and self belief.

In 2017, the 'Walk with Scott' charity achieved it's foundation status. So far, over the last 5 years we've helped 50 charities, walked more than 250 miles, and raised more than £250,000.00. Thank you to all who have donated!

Despite everything, I seem to have earned a reputation as one of the funniest comedians, hosts, comperes, auctioneers and corporate speakers in the country, and with my stories of village life, rugby, and everyday occurrences, I can guarantee that whatever your event, it will be a huge success. As I always say... it's a true story!

Photos of some memorable moments

Over the years, Scott has been lucky enough to speak at some wonderful events all over the world, and he's had the privilege of sharing top tables with sporting legends such as Sir Alex Ferguson, Walter Smith, Jim Leishman, Nobby Stiles, and Billy McNeil to name just a few.

He's had a major role in a recent BBC TV series, starred in various commercials, and he's even played a tough guy on 'Taggart', however he's most at home when entertaining on stage in front of a live audience... whether it's pantomime, standup, or after-dinner speaking!

Scott has shared the stage with some of the best actors and comedians in the country, however he enjoys nothing more than connecting with the most important people in the room... the audience. Click on the slideshows below to see some of the famous (and not-so-famous) faces he's met along the way.

Festivals & Agricultural Shows

Festivals are great, however you need someone to introduce the acts onto the stage, and keep your audience entertained in between. The same applies with agricultural shows... you need someone to announce and keep the public informed. Scott has all the experience to keep your event running smoothly.

He is the perfect choice for any occasion, whether it's a traditional Burn's Supper, a large corporate event, or a small intimate dinner party.

Host and Compere

Scott has hosted many events including Corporate Evenings, Music Festivals, Burn's Suppers and Agricultural Shows.

The chairman of the Dalkeith Agricultural Show had this to say... "Scott's running of the main circle, the interviews with the participants, and his banter and interaction with the crowd has helped us take this show to a higher dimension for the paying public."


Scott is a top-class auctioneer, where his own witty style has been recognised by the many clients who re-book him.

John Thorburn said... "Scott was a brilliant auctioneer at our recent Bill McLaren Foundation Golf Day. He had the audience in stitches and managed to bring a perfect balance of humour to the day. We've worked with Scott at our events before, and certainly hope to again!"

After-Dinner Speaker

Scott is an award-winning after-dinner speaker. Fantastically entertaining, and currently in huge demand throughout Britain.

Sports journalist, Chick Young said "Scott Glynn is one of the funniest guys on the after dinner circuit", and Carnoustie R.F.C. said "you were outstanding! You really read the audience... a male audience must be a safe bet, but to have a mixed audience in tears was superb."
