Parish was born in Towcester, and joined Aston Villa's Academy in the 2006–07 season. He became the regular goalkeeper for Villa's under-18 team that won the 2007–08 Premier Academy League and reached the semi-final of the FA Youth Cup the same year. He represented England in the 2009 under-20 World Cup, and was highlighted by coach Brian Eastick as "one player in particular to come out with some credit". In the 2010–11 season, he established himself as the regular goalkeeper for Villa's reserve team and travelled with the first team squad in the Europa League.
On 24 March 2011, Parish signed for Football League Two club Lincoln City on loan until the end of the season. He went straight into the starting eleven for his Football League debut the following day, in a match against Rotherham United F.C. which Lincoln lost 6–0.
On 23 September 2011, Elliot joined Cardiff City on a loan deal until 10 November. He went straight into the squad, being placed on the bench against Leicester City, two days later. He never once played for Cardiff during his loan spell but signed a 1 and a half-year contract on 3 January 2012. At the end of the 2012-13 season, Elliot was released by Cardiff City after failing to make an appearance.
On 18 September 2012, Elliot was signed by League Two club, Wycombe Wanderers on an emergency short-term loan, after Wycombe's first and second-choice goalkeepers suffered injuries. He made his debut on the same day against Exeter City. He returned to Cardiff on 25 September, after making two appearances.
After being released by Cardiff City, Elliot went on trial with Scottish Club Aberdeen, having been invited to join the side for pre-season training, whether or not to earn a contract. After a week with Aberdeen, it announced that Elliot will not be offered a new contract. After an unsuccessful trial with Aberdeen, Elliot went on trial with League One side Bristol City. After a week with the club, it was announced on 26 July 2013 that Elliot signed for the club on a two-year contract.
Newport County (loan)
On 7 August 2014, Parish joined Blackpool on a free transfer from Bristol City, on a one-year deal, with an option of a further 12-month stay. Parish made his Blackpool debut in a home 1-0 win against Cardiff City
