Pen Pic

Robbie Elliott arrived in Hartlepool in July 2007 to provide more competition in the left back and centre back positions. He joined after an unsuccesful spell at Leeds United where he played just 7 times.

Elliott began his career at his hometown club Newcastle United where he played 73 times and scored 9 times, including 7 goals in the 1996/97 season. He also played for the England U21 side during his time at St. James Park.

After Kevin Keegan was sacked as Newcastle manager Elliott joined Bolton Wanderers, on his debut he suffered a broken leg and was unable to help Bolton avoid relegation. Elliott was a key part of getting Bolton back to the Premier League and won in the play-off final of 2001 after 2 previous play-off defeats.

Elliott returned to Newcastle on a Bosman, he failed to hold down a first team place on his return to Tyneside but featured 63 times between 2001 and 2006. After he was deemed surplus to requirements he moved to Newcastle's biggest rivals Sunderland, he struggled to find form and joined Leeds in January 2007.

Elliott was released after just 1 season at Victoria Park. He made 16 appearances, mostly at left back, and recieved 1 red card.

"Robbie Elliott failed to show any of the skills required to be a defender during his time at the Vic, his positional play was poor and his set pieces were abysmal. Elliott found himself out of the side for large parts of the season and on 2 of the occasions he did play he was hauled off at half time."
