It is with great sadness that the club has learned of the death of former Camden Swiss Cottage Swimming Club Head Coach, Neville Cross, after a period of illness.
Neville joined the club in 1980 moving to us from Nova Centurion in Nottingham. He was the first full-time coach the club had ever had and left us with a great legacy. He was instrumental in the club's development and the huge progress it made during this time and beyond.
He left the club in 1984 moving north to Scotland, with Dave Hobbs joining us as Director of Swimming.
Neville continued to be involved in swimming in many different areas, including at Warrender Baths Club in Edinburgh and as a coach on a GB Olympic team. He was honoured with membership of the British Swimming Coaches Association Hall of Fame for his Olympic role.
Neville passed away in hospital in Edinburgh. We send our condolences to Neville’s family and friends.
