Allen Fisher Lissette, who died suddenly in Hamilton, NZ, on January 24, aged 53, played in two Test matches for New Zealand during the 1955-56 tour by the West Indies. A slow left-arm bowler, he assisted the Hamilton and Waikato clubs for many years after the Second World War, in which he served in the R.N.Z.A.F. and was awarded the M.B.E. for work in forming the 7th Squadron of the Air Training Corps in Hamilton. He represented first Auckland and then Northern Districts in the Plunket Shield competition. He played cricket up to the 1972-73 season when he suffered a heart attack during a match in October.
