Elliot Charles "Ell" Parish (born 20 May 1990) is an English professional footballer who plays for Blackpool as a goalkeeper.

Career[edit]

Aston Villa[edit]

Parish was born in Towcester,[3] 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.[4] 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".[5] 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.[6]

Lincoln City[edit]

On 24 March 2011, Parish signed for Football League Two club Lincoln City on loan until the end of the season.[7] 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.[8]

Cardiff City[edit]

On 23 September 2011, Elliot joined Cardiff City on a loan deal until 10 November.[9] 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.[10] At the end of the 2012-13 season, Elliot was released by Cardiff City after failing to make an appearance.[11]

Wycombe Wanderers[edit]

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.[12] He made his debut on the same day against Exeter City. He returned to Cardiff on 25 September, after making two appearances.[13]

Bristol City[edit]

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.[14] After a week with Aberdeen, it announced that Elliot will not be offered a new contract.[15] After an unsuccessful trial with Aberdeen, Elliot went on trial with League One side Bristol City.[16] After a week with the club, it was announced on 26 July 2013 that Elliot signed for the club on a two-year contract.[17]

Newport County (loan)[edit]

On 10 February 2014, Parish joined Newport County on an emergency loan.[18] He made his debut for Newport County on 15 February versus Hartlepool. He returned to Bristol City 11 March 2014.

Blackpool[edit]

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.[19] Parish made his Blackpool debut in a home 1-0 win against Cardiff City
