Club legend retires

It’s the end of an era for a Bridgnorth sports club, as its head coach steps down after 35 years. Richard Davidson, known simply as ‘D’, took charge of Northgate Swimming Club for the final time at the Shropshire County Championships. Richard has had a huge influence on swimming in Shropshire, having coached the county and former Salopia squad. He joined Northgate around the time it was formed in 1976 and became head coach in 1982.

A Fellow of the Institute of Swimming, he was awarded the West Midlands ASA’s lifetime achievement award in 2010. He will continue to coach with Northgate’s senior squad while helping successor Gary Barnes to transition into the head coach role.
