ALAN ELLIOTT PASSES AWAY
Unfortunately I bring news of the sad passing of
Alan "Whistler" Elliott who passed away on Sunday after a battle with cancer.
Alan was the younger brother of former Clifton Presidents Sam and Harold Elliott. Although he did not carry out any administrative duties to the same level of his brothers, Alan was a great servant of the club, and played the game in the way it should be, signified by the fact that he was the last recipient of the club's award "Sportsman of the Year" in 1965.
He made his debut in 1954, and played over 600 matches for the club. His high score of 66* came in 1978 against Wellow. Incredibly, Alan never took a five wicket haul for the club, his best being 4-11 v Kegworth Town.
He finally hung up his whites in 1994, after stepping in at short notice to play in a South Notts victory at Bramcote, to end a playing career for the club that lasted exactly 40 years.
Our thoughts are with Alan's family at this sad time.
Funeral arrangements have been made for 2pm Thursday 1st June 2017 at St Marys Church in Clifton Village
