Where is Wade Elliott now?
An ever-present player during Burnley’s 2009-10 Premier League season, Wade Elliott retired from playing at the end of the 2014-15 season after captaining a Bristol City side which gained promotion to the Championship.
Having already taken his coaching badges whilst still an active player, upon retiring he stayed on at The Robins as the new manager of their under 21’s side.
In June 2016, after a coaching restructure at the club, City made the surprising decision to relieve Elliott of his duties.

He then made a return to playing football a month later when he featured for non-league side Forest Green Rovers in a pre-season friendly with a view to earning a new playing contract.
Although Elliott featured heavily during Forest Green’s pre-season he felt his immediate future lay in coaching and in October 2016 he was announced as the club’s academy’s new assistant manager.
In April 2017 he left his post at Forest Green to join Premier League side Stoke City as assistant manager of their under 23’s team.
He was then promoted to manager of the under 23’s in January 2018 when Glyn Hodges left the club after the sacking of first team manager Mark Hughes but reverted back to his original role at the end of the season.
