Alan Kellett

Profile

Signed from the Halifax amateur club Ovenden, early in 1955, it would be another three years before Alan Kellett commanded a regular place in the first team. A lightening fast stand off half, he represented a contrast to the Oldham fans, who for the previous few years had seen the less pacey, yet equally talented Stirrup and Daley share the occupancy of the No 6 shirt, with their emphasis on guile and ball handling skills.

Alan made his Oldham debut at Belle Vue Rangers on March 13th, 1955 making infrequent appearances for the senior side until March 1958, when he got into the team and stayed there for the last 11 matches of the 1957-58 season. From then on he was the first choice stand off for the next five years. Fast and elusive, he struck up a good partnership with Frank Pitchford and won Yorkshire county honours in 1958, going on to win six caps for the “White Rose” county while at Oldham.

Alan scored a try in the Lancashire Cup Final of 1958, as St Helens were defeated 12 – 2 at Swinton.

After leaving to join his home town club of Halifax in 1963, he later went to Bradford Northern and Keighley before returning for a brief period in 1971 to play in a further nine games for Oldham.
