Born in Derby, Derbyshire, Elliott came though the ranks at Pride Park and made his first team debut in the League Cup in September 1997. He made a total of 72 league appearances for Derby County, including 14 as a substitute. In November 2003 he moved to Blackpool on loan. The deal later became permanent.
Elliott then signed for Bristol Rovers in the summer of 2004. He made 40 appearances in his first season and scored twice, before going on to make 45 appearances in his second season again scoring twice.
In June 2007, Elliott signed a two-year extension to his contract, meaning it was meant to expire in the summer of 2011.
He was sent off for the third time in his Bristol Rovers career on 24 November 2007, for an alleged headbutt in a volatile game at Swindon Town. He then scored an outstanding goal against Gillingham from 25 yards out as the season drew to a close. That secured mathematical safety.
Along with 14 other players, he was released by Rovers at the end of the 2009/10 season.
