Mark Ian Ellis (born 30 September 1988) is a footballer who plays as a defender for League Two side Shrewsbury Town. He began his career at Bolton Wanderers, without making a senior appearance, and has previously played in the Football League for Torquay United and Crewe Alexandra, as well as a loan spell in the Football Conference for Forest Green Rovers.
Ellis made his debut for Torquay on 22 September 2007, in the Football Conference clash with Kidderminster Harriers, at Aggborough, which ended in a 5–2 win to Torquay. Following the Gulls promotion to the Football League, Ellis began the 2009–10 season on loan at Conference National club Forest Green Rovers.
Following his release from Crewe Alexandra, Ellis joined up with Shrewsbury Town on 30 May 2014 on a two-year contract with an option for a further year. He made his debut on the opening day of the season against A.F.C. Wimbledon, but found himself in and out of the starting eleven in the first few months of the season.
Due to the suspension of fellow defender Jermaine Grandison, he was recalled to the starting line-up and scored his first goal for the club in a 2-2 draw with local rivals Walsall in a first round FA Cup tie in November 2014. Although Grandison was reinstated for the following match, Ellis was recalled again after his team-mate withdrew from the squad with illness against Cambridge United on 13 December. This time he kept his place in the team, helping Shrewsbury keep clean sheets against promotion rivals Wycombe Wanderers and Luton Town, and also scoring away at Oxford United in a 2-0 Boxing Day win.
