Chris Elliott

Right-hand batsman; Right-arm bowler

‘Jethro’ started his Melton career as a bowler in 1989 when he came to Norfolk to work for Norwich Union but became better known as a batsman and is now the 4th highest run-scorer in Melton’s history.  Jethro has been Treasurer as well as a successful captain, winning 7 trophies in his time as Sunday Captain, First Team Captain, A Team Captain and Midweek Captain. He has, until fairly recently, been fully involved in the management of the club, organising tours and the six-a-side tournament. Family and job commitments mean that he makes very occasional appearances these days but he did add 2 appearances to his impressive total in 2020. Over the years he's been one of our most consistent batsmen and his very safe hands place him among the few specialist slip-catchers in the club.
