After five years as chancellor at Leeds Trinity University, TV presenter Gabby Logan announced yesterday that she will step down from her post.

Gabby will officially step down in the New Year – completing her five year term since being named as the university’s first ever chancellor in January 2013. The university’s graduation ceremony on Wednesday, December 6 will be her last official event.

Gabby, the Leeds-born daughter of former Leeds United player Terry Yorath, said: “I am very proud to be part of the community at Leeds Trinity and to hold the post as their very first chancellor.

“I’m a firm believer in the importance of higher education. I’d like to wish the University, its staff, students and alumni, continued success for the future.”
