1060 Tommy Elphick

Biography

Experienced centre back Elphick joined City on the August 2018 transfer deadline day, adding strength and experience to the Tigers’ new look defence assembled by Nigel Adkins.  He slotted straight into the back four and improved matters, adding not just defensive skills but also enhanced levels of communication on the field.

Elphick was born and raised in Brighton and spent his formative years at his local club, making his senior debut for the Seagulls in December 2005.  He was a regular in the Brighton for several years but in 2012, after a lengthy injury lay-off, he moved along the South Coast and signed for upwardly mobile Bournemouth.  In four seasons Elphick was a first team regular and first team captain as the Cherries were elevated to the Premier League, although Tommy’s appearances in the top flight were curtailed by another injury.  Elphick signed for Aston Villa at the start of 2016/17 season and immediately made club captain, however by the end of his first season at Villa Park he was sidelined by new boss Steve Bruce.  Linked with permanent moves away, Elphick had a short loan spell at Reading prior to his season long switch to the Tigers.
