as the 'machine' in the in the heart of the Manic's, Elliott Fairs
has so far been the best ever holding midfielder to have worn
a Manics shirt.
In his first season for the club, Fairs was awarded 'Manics 2001-2002
Goal of the Season' culminating in his strike against WH Rangers.
Not only that, Fairs also won the clubs first annual golfing day
competition, being honoured 'Manics 2001-2002 Annual Golfing Champion'.
Elliott translated the promise he showed into consistent top-draw
performances, resulting in him being voted 'Manic's Player's Player
2001-2002,' and 'Manics Runners-up Manager's Player 2001-2002'
concluding an excellent season for the Manics player.
Having overcome an a slight injury problem in his 2002-2003 season,
Fairs fought his way back into the Manics first team, and silenced
any critics by once again making the holding midfielder role his
own. He then committed himself further to the 'Manics Cause' by
signing again in August 2002.
Once again, in his 2002-2003 season, Fairs was a rock in midfield,
and earnt 'Manics 2002-2003 Runners-up Player's Player'.
Then in his 2003-2004 Fairs went on to become 'Manics 2003-2004
Runners-up Player's Player' for the second time in his history
with the club.
In his 2004-2005 season, Elliott Fairs went on to receive the
captain's armband for the season, fulfilling his role to the best
of his ability and filling a number of roles at the back undaunted
by the tasks set. Fairs led the Manics to promotion in Division
One, and lifted the cup at the end of the season. For his leadership
quality, loyalty and commitment to the club, Elliott Fairs received
'Manics 2004-2005 Manager's Player'.
Since then Elliott Fairs has taken a step down, hanging his boots
up at Christmas 2006. However Elliott Fairs continues to help
the club on one or two more occassions, and he has signed again
in 2007-2008 for the club if needed.
Elliott Fairs remains to be one of the longest serving Manics
players to date playing from 2001 to the present season.
