Wolverhampton Swimming Club can confirm that Head Coach Adam Johnson has left his position by mutual consent and with immediate effect.

Adam has been with the club for more than 10 years, with the last 6 years being as Head Coach. During his tenure Adam has overseen unprecedented success for WSC swimmers at County, Regional and National level. Promotion to the National Arena League Premier Division for only the second time in the club’s long history was also an achievement worthy of note.

Club Chairman Eliot Burns said “On behalf of Wolverhampton Swimming Club, its swimmers, coaches, parents and committee I would like to thank Adam for his invaluable contribution to the development of this club. We all have many happy memories of those Saturday nights in the Arena League along with times away from home in far flung places such as Cardiff, Sheffield, Portsmouth, Millfield and Glasgow to name but a few. Adam was a big part of all that success, and it will never be forgotten.”

Adam was due to leave the club in the Summer of 2020 and was part of the executive team responsible for the recruitment process that brought Gary Barnes to Wolverhampton as Senior Coach in September. Gary will now step up to the role of Head Coach a few months earlier than planned.

Gary said “Looking at the club through a new pair of eyes I can see that everything is there. I am really looking forward to the future with WSC and hope that we can all move forward quickly together.”
