Elliott scarcely needs an introduction, but, for more recent Borough supporters…. Scoring for fun at his first senior club, Three Bridges, he was snapped up by none other than Garry Wilson, who was then managing Lewes FC with Danny Bloor.
From the Dripping Pan Elliott then moved – perhaps on Garry’s recommendation – across the A27 to Borough, scoring 20 goals in just 25 starts in 2016/17 under Tommy Widdrington.He had the distinction of being the first scorer on the newly laid 3G in August 2016 – a hat-trick in fact! He moved to Dagenham & Redbridge for an undisclosed fee in 2017 and has also spent time with Torquay United and Maidstone United.
Switching then to Dartford, Romain was a key figure in the Darts’ 2019/20 success, scoring 15 goals in 26 games as Dartford went all the way to the National League South promotion final. Now, at Ebbsfleet United, he is one of a very large and strong squad – and a loan move back to Borough suits everyone perfectly. It will give the player valuable game time, and he is a terrific addition to Danny Bloor’s options.
“Elliott needs no introduction to our fans,” commented manager Bloor. “And more’s to the point, he is a player whom they love to bits. He is, as we know, an attacker who terrorises defences with his pace and physical power. He’s a striker you always want playing for you and not against you! I want to thank Ebbsfleet United manager Dennis Kutrieb and chief executive Damian Irvine for making this possible.”
Welcome – or rather, welcome back – Elliott!
