Former City boss passes away

Colin Lippiatt passes away following illness

THE details of former St Albans City boss Colin Lippiatt’s funeral have been released.

Lippiatt, who led City to victory in the Blue Square South play-off final against Histon in the 2005/06 season, died on Friday at the age of 68 after a battle with cancer.

Lippatt arrived at Clarence Park as assistant manager in 2004 but took over when manager Stuart Cash resigned after only a week in the job.

Lippiatt guided the Saints to safety and just 12 months later had taken City to the Blue Square Premier.

Despite a bright start in non-league’s highest tier Lippiatt was unable to save the Saints from relegation and he resigned at the end of the campaign.

Lippiatt’s funeral will take place on Wednesday, November 3, at 12 noon at Easthampstead Park Crematorium, Wokingham. All are welcome to attend the ceremony.
