One of the AFL’s most electrifying young players, Elliott was pre-listed by GWS in the lead up to the 2011 trade period before eventually being traded to the Magpies where he has fast become one of the favourite sons of the black and white army.
A small forward with a major presence in the air, Elliott made his debut in Round 9 of the 2012 season and hasn’t looked back since, booting an impressive 69 goals in his first 52 games, including 33 in 2014 placing him among the elite small forwards in the AFL.
As well as possessing an impressive highlight reel of spectacular marks and breathtaking goals, Elliott’s tackling and defensive pressure are also a hallmark of his game. Highlighting the regard Elliott is held in internally, at the end of the 2014 season he was handed Collingwood’s coveted number 5 jumper, previously worn by Premiership Captain Nick Maxwell, and famously his now coach, Nathan Buckley.
Elliott is regarded by many as one of the most promising young players in the AFL and will be looking to excite the Magpie faithful for many years to come.
