The club is sad to announce the death of Ian Greyson, the for­mer Head Coach of City of Leeds Swim­ming Club.

Ian came to the club as Senior Age Group Coach and took over the role of Head Coach from Ter­ry Deni­son in 2003. He was respon­si­ble for the con­tin­u­ing suc­cess of the club for a num­ber of years, until he moved to work at Leeds Met­ro­pol­i­tan Uni­ver­si­ty (now Leeds Beck­ett) in 2007. He coached many swim­mers to achieve nation­al and inter­na­tion­al suc­cess dur­ing that time and main­tained the club’s top posi­tion in nation­al events.

He was an excel­lent coach and a great friend and men­tor to many swim­mers and coach­es, not only here in Leeds but as part of his exten­sive work with region­al and nation­al squads.

He will be fond­ly remem­bered and sad­ly missed.

Our con­do­lences go to his fam­i­ly and friends.
