Joined the Saints in October 2004 as assistant manager to Stuart Cash. When Cash walked out within a week of taking the job the experienced Lippiatt took on the top job at Clarence Park. Performed a near miracle in taking what appeared to be a side certain for relegation to midtable safety. Has also managed Chesham United and Yeovil Town but will always be remembered for his partnership with Geoff Chapple at Woking, the duo taking the Cards through the Isthmian League to the Conference, FA Trophy successes and the memorable FA Cup ties with West Bromwich Albion and Everton. Lippiatt also had a spell as manager at Woking and also worked as Chapple’s number two at Kingstonian. Prior to his success at Woking he was assistant manager to Brian Caterer at Leatherhead and Maidenhead United. As a player he turned out for west London clubs Hayes, Ruislip Manor and Uxbridge before ending his career in the mid 1970s at Wokingham Town.
