Flowers Brings in Former Team-Mate as Number Two
 
 
   

Tim Flowers, the new manager of Blue Square Bet North club Stafford Rangers, has appointed his former Leicester City team-mate Matty Elliott as his number two.

 

Elliott began his career in non-League football with Leatherhead and Epsom & Ewell, before getting his first taste of professional football with Charlton Athletic.

 

Unable to break into the Charlton first-team, he moved to Torquay within a year. He then worked his way up the ladder, signing for Scunthorpe in March 1992, moving on to Oxford United in November 1993, and finally getting his chance in the Premiership when he was signed by Leicester in early 1997 for a fee of £1.6 million, which to this day remains Oxford's record sale.

 

Elliott was an instant success at Leicester, and went on to captain the side. He was in fact the first person to captain the Foxes at their new Walker Stadium in 2002. Elliott usually played as a central defender, although he was also an effective emergency centre forward due to his bustling physique and bruising style of play.

 

Highlights of his career include scoring both goals for Leicester in their League Cup final win against Tranmere in 2000. He also won promotion to Division One with Oxford in the 1995/96.

 

When Martin O'Neill left Leicester to manage Celtic in July 2001, he made an attempt to lure Elliott to the club in a £3.5 million bid. It was unsuccessful when Elliott signed the last contract of his career in August 2001, which would last until June 2005.

 

He had a loan spell at Ipswich Town before his retirement, but his final season was thwarted by a knee injury, and after making only three appearances, and he retired from playing in January 2005.

 

In June 2008, Elliott was unveiled as the new assistant-manager to former Torquay team-mate Dean Edwards at Hednesford Town. After a season that saw the Pitmen finish just outside the play-offs in the UniBond League, Elliott stepped down from his position at Keys Park in May 2009 to concentrate on other business interests.

 

However, he was then appointed as assistant and then joint-manager of Baker Joiner Midland Alliance side Oadby Town.

 

Elliott`s appointment has seen the departure of former number two Steve Wynn, who had acted as caretaker boss after Chris Brindley`s departure.
