About us Latest news In Memory of Murray Cran Sport Aberdeen has been deeply saddened by the recent death of our colleague Murray Cran, aged 52. Murray had worked for Sport Aberdeen’s Active Schools Team as a Lead Sports Coach for a number of years. Over this period, Murray coached at many primary schools in the city and inspired thousands of children to participate in sport. Murray was always popular with the children he coached due to his enthusiasm, sense of humour and passion for sport. Murray was also a popular member of staff at Sport Aberdeen and having made many friends across the company he will be sorely missed. Our thoughts at this time are with Murray’s wife Evelyn, who also works for Sport Aberdeen, his family and friends.
