Ian Wickens

Club Secretary

Ian is a frequent swimmer and biker, most likely to be found knee deep in mud on his mountain bike somewhere in the beautiful Shires countryside. Ian has been a committed member of Shires Triers for over three years and really values the Monday night coached swim sessions in addition to regular 'social' swim sets and mountain bike rides with club members.

Nick Vaughan


Nick came to triathlon after joining one of our swim sessions. He is passionate about swimming and loves lake swimming. Nick is also a dedicated MTBer and during lockdown turned to the darkside after buying a roadbike and taking the plunge with road cycling. Nick tends to focus on swimming and cycling events.

Rob Pinfield

Club Membership Officer

Rob is a long standing member of Shires having been with the club now for the best part of 20 years. Rob's passion is cycling and (almost) has the largest calves in the club to prove it! Rob's preferred distance is Ironman and his happy place is on his bike.

Nicola Davidson

Communications Officer

Nicola has been a member now for the last 3 years and has proved to be an inspirational club member. She participates in many alternative races that many of us have never heard of.
