Still at club
6 Nov 2002
In the dark days of the Mike Ashley and Steve Bruce era at Newcastle United, as a second year of COVID gripped the world, Elliot would get a chance to offer Newcastle a rare ray of light after making his full debut for the club.
His first appearance would be as a substitute in an extra time loss in the FA Cup, away to Arsenal in an empty Emirates Stadium on January 12th 2021. His league debut coming just a week later, again his early promise and confidence being able to do nothing to stop his team suffering another defeat after coming on in the 87th minute.
Born in Whitley Bay, the local lad played his junior International football for Scotland, qualifying to play for them through his Grandmother.
