NELSON STIFFLE 1928-2005

Former Chester player Nelson Stiffle died recently in Brisbane, Australia at the age of 76. The Indian born outside right played seven league games, scoring twice, in the 1951/52 season having joined Chester from Ashton United late in 1951.

Nelson moved to Altrincham in summer 1952 and was a regular at Moss Lane for the next two seasons. He was given the chance to resurrect his league career when he was transferred to Chesterfield in March 1954 and went on to play for Bournemouth, Exeter and Coventry with his final Football League game coming in the 1960/61 season.

Nelson emigrated to Australia at the start of the 1960s and played for Bankstown in the New South Wales League where he later became coach.
