  8. Ian was a remarkable man who shall be greatly missed. We never were able to see each other that often due to being on the other side of the world but he always took the time to visit us in Merthyr when he was home. It was fantastic and an honour to see him for my wedding back in 2009 which he flew over for and to also arrange a tour of Swansea City football club for him in later years. May you rest in peace Cousin Ian until we all meet you again. Dorian & Rhian (Swansea) Lorraine (Merthyr)

  10. Sincere condolences to Ian’s family, friends and all who loved him.
    Thank you for sharing so much of his time with you with the football fraternity.
    Ian believed in our daughter Holly’s talent and work ethic – and as the youngest player at 16 in the inaugural Calder United team travelling weekly from Shepparton (moving to Melb at 18 to house share with other players), we were always grateful for his genuine interest in her mental and emotional wellbeing, as well as soccer development. He remained her trusted adviser when she moved other clubs, always a phone call away, and will be greatly missed as a mentor both in and outside the game he loved.

  11. A beautiful, beautiful service in celebration of Ian’s life and emotional final farewell for a much-loved family man, friend and respected coach. Our thoughts remain with you all – and with Ian always. Hwyl fawr ffrind. George&Jackie , Merthyr.Xx⚽️⚽️

    From Sherril and Paul (dec).

  14. To the family, friends and colleagues of Ian Williamson,

    Condolences to all on the passing of Ian, a man we loved, admired and appreciated.

    Like many, Ian was a mentor, friend and colleague that guided me not only through football but throughout life, the lessons of which I will continue to live by and serve me well. I cannot quantify the appreciation I have to Ian for the time, care and openness that he shared during our time together, some 18 years of association. I am forever grateful for his guidance, wisdom and support, I could not have had as special a mentor, person or being like Ian.

    Gone but never forgotten, his memory will live will me forever.
