GSCC Founder and Former Chairman, Tony Pell:

We are sorry to have to announce that club founder and former chairman Tony Pell has sadly passed away after a short illness. On behalf of all members and officials of GSCC we send our condolences to his family.

Tony formed Glanford and Scunthorpe Canoe Club with his late wife Shirley in 1982 and was chairman for many years. They both worked tirelessly to bring canoeing into the region, not just in the local Brigg and Scunthorpe area but also across the Humber where they helped establish the Hull Canoe Polo International and the Humberside Canoe Association. In 2012, shortly before they retired from the committee of GSCC, they delivered the fantastic boathouse facility that we currently enjoy.

We will announce details of the funeral arrangements when we have them.
