Robbie Elliott

Where is Robbie Elliott now?

One of the few players who played for both Newcastle United and Sunderland, Robbie Elliott hung up his boots in 2008 after a season playing for Hartlepool United.

Starting his career with the Magpies in 1991, he went onto make nearly 300 first team appearances for five clubs with highlights including winning promotion to the top-tier with Bolton in 2001 and coming second in the Premier League with Newcastle in 1997.

Upon retiring from playing Elliott returned to Newcastle United to work as a fitness and conditioning coach but left after a year later due to the continuing turmoil within the club at the time.

He then moved to the United States where he worked for the US Soccer Federation as a team performance expert before joining sports giant Nike in his current role as a member of their sports performance research team.

Away from football he has set up the Robbie Elliott Foundation which has raised thousands of pounds for charities including the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

In 2012 he undertook a 3,500 mile charity bike ride where he visited all of Bobby Robson’s former clubs which raised millions of pounds for his charity.
