Matt Elliott

Where is Matt Elliott now?

After a long career, mostly in the Premier League with Leicester City, Matt Elliott retired from football in January 2005 after a brief spell on loan at Ipswich Town.

Playing for 16 years, he made over 600 appearances for six clubs – the majority at Leicester City with whom he won the League Cup in 2000 in a game that he captained and also scored.

After a couple of years out of the game Elliott returned to football when he was appointed assistant manager at non-league side Hednesford in 2011 but left after a year to pursue other business interests which included his ME Football Development Scheme, a football academy project based in Leicestershire that is still going strong today.

He then made a return to football as assistant manager of Oadby Town before moving onto Stafford Rangers where he joined former Leicester City team-mate Tim Flowers as his assistant.

When Flowers resigned in 2011, Elliott took over as manager but was unable to prevent the club getting relegated and he subsequently resigned from his post in May 2011.

He then spent time coaching at Leicester City’s academy before joining Thai Premier League side Army United as head coach where he spent six months before returning to the UK.

Elliot then spent two years working at De Montford University as football development manager as well as working as a co-commentator and match summariser for BBC Radio Leicester.

He currently works at his academy as sporting director and represents Leicester City as one of the club’s ambassadors.
