Career details:

He returned to his Oldfield School as a teacher.

He skippered a Bath side which toured Germany at the end of the 1975-76 season. His gregarious nature made him a popular choice as Vice Captain and he acted as an ideal foil for the more remote Roger Walkey in the 1971/2 season.. He also did sterling work as Captain of the United XV.

Roger shares the club record of seven consecutive successful penalty kicks for the 1st XV (against Newbridge RFC on 27th December 1969) with Ollie Barkley.

  • It is indeed the same Roger Elliott. He hasn’t really improved with age! We’ll tell Roger that you wrote in.

  • D of B 3rd September ’46- not December ’46.
    !st XV appearances 110- not 132 (a prop also named Roger Elliott later in the 70’s, had 22 1st XV appearances.)
    I was Club Vice-Captain in 1971/72- not 61/62
    I still hold a club record having kicked seven consecutive penalties from seven attempts for the 1st XV against Newbridge on the 27th December 1969. Ollie Barclay is the only one to equal this record. NB- Profile photograph cuts my head off!!!.
