Nathan Elasi (born 18 November 1989 in Sydney) is an Australian footballer who plays for Sutherland Sharks in the NSW Premier League.

Club career[edit]

Elasi was named Golden Boot winner in the Football NSW Grade 20 league with Marconi Stallions in their 2006–2007 season.

Melbourne Victory[edit]

He was signed by Melbourne Victory in January 2008, as a recruit for Victory's 2008 AFC Champions League campaign, primarily as a back-up for first shoice strikers, Archie Thompson and Danny Allsopp. Originally recommended to Ernie Merrick by fellow Young Socceroos player Sebastian Ryall, Elasi had since impressed in club training with his pace, positioning and his ability to use his body.[1]

Bonnyrigg White Eagles[edit]

He had a trial with new club Melbourne Heart but turned down their contract offer due to them being a rival of his old club Victory. Afterwards, Elasi joined the NSW Premier League team in April 2010 setting up the final goal in Bonnyrigg's 4–0 victory over the Bankstown City Lions on debut.[2]
