Mr Robertson said: “It is a personal honour to be appointed as vice chair of the Community Leisure UK board, however it has come about because of our terrific staff who have helped to make Sport Aberdeen a multi-award winning community leisure trust that is respected across Scotland.

“It is also thanks to a great board of directors and our excellent working partnership with Aberdeen City Council, which is the envy of many other local authorities.”
