Not to be confused with his goal machine namesake that played for City during the following decade, Stuart Elliott was a combative midfielder who spent March 1997 on loan at Terry Dolan’s Tigers – he was sent off in the 90th minute of his debut, a theme he returned to a few times over his subsequent 17 year playing career.
Despite born in Hendon and coming through the youth ranks at Arsenal, Elliott was loaned to the Tigers by Newcastle United, who signed him as an 18 year old. Hull City was the first many loan clubs for Elliott over a four year period before he left the Magpies in 2000. He then embarked on an epic 14 year tour of lower league and non-league clubs, rarely staying anywhere for more than a season. Quite a character.
In 2009 Elliott had a spell as assistant manager at Grays Athletic while alo playing for the first team. In February 2019, after Elliott’s playing career had ended back in the North East, he was appointed manager of Newcastle Benfield (aka The Lions), a Northern League side that play in the East End of Newcastle.
