The Board


Alistair Neill

President (Acting)
Alistair Neill

Alistair was introduced to rowing in the late 70s at City of Glasgow ARC. Whilst he thoroughly enjoyed the sport, his competitive success was limited. As Alistair says, “I didn’t lose every race I took part in”.

He became involved in the organisation side of the sport and has been in charge of medal presentations at Scottish Champs since 1981. He has been on the SR Domestic regatta organising team since 1984 and has involved in the running of all of the major international regattas at Strathclyde Park since the early 90s.

Alistair is a member of Strathclyde Park Rowing Club where he is currently President.

Director of Performance
Dorothy Roberts

Dorothy learnt to row, as a student, on the Union Canal in Edinburgh. She progressed to racing internationally and retired after a career encompassing three Olympic Games and five World Championships. She moved on to work at UK Sport and then at the sportscotland Institute of Sport before moving to a role in the Performance Team at Scottish Swimming.

Having experience as athlete, coach, service provider and manager she has a solid understanding of the challenges that sports face in the performance sphere at both strategic and operational levels.

 Finance Director
Neil McIver


Neil first started rowing in 1988 at Maidenhead Rowing Club, Berkshire, where he was part of an ‘enthusiastic’ four for a number of years.  Family commitments then took precedence but he maintained a strong interest in the sport.

With a career in Not-for Profit/Charity Finance, it seemed a natural combination to link both interests when the opportunity as Finance Director arose.

Neil claims to be “very much a rowing spectator now”!!
