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.
