Burnley X-Files: Elliott Released at Birmingham

Burnley X-Files: Elliott Released at Birmingham

Wade Elliott is one of six players released by Birmingham City. The former Burnley winger and Wembley hero has not featured in the Blues first team for some time and last season he went out on loan to League One, Bristol City in January 2014 to link up once again with his former boss at Turf Moor, Steve Cotterill. The loan deal was initially for one month but this was extended to the end of the season.

The 35 year old started his career with non-league club Bashley before signing for Bournemouth for a fee of £5,000 in February 2000.

He joined Burnley in the summer of 2004 after his contract at Dean Court expired and went onto make 252 appearances for the Clarets scoring 19 goals. The one goal of course that he will be remembered for the most was the one he scored back in May 2009 against Sheffield United in the Championship Play Offs Final at Wembley. That 1-0 win secured our promotion to the top flight for the first time in 33 years and he instantly became our Wembley hero!

Elliott joined Championship club Birmingham City in August 2011 on the last day of the summer transfer window for an undisclosed fee after agreeing a two-year deal. He made 88 appearances for the Blues scoring eight goals.

Good luck Wado! Wonder if he will sign a permanent deal with Steve Cotterill's Bristol City now?

Hope he does find another club soon maybe in League one. His name is cemented in stone as a Burnley Legend.

Not a prolific goalscorer, but scored in non-league, all four league tiers and, while with Birmingham, in Europe. A unique achievement?

Always loved to see Wade Elliot play. A playmaker if ever there was one, very creative and talented.

Caught a train at New Milton yesterday afternoon. As I am sure all VB readers know, NM is the closest station to Bashley, Wado's first club, but which is not to be confused with NM's own XI (who play in lower leagues) unless you want to start a New Forest heave-ho. I was astonished at the number of staff on the station platforms, and asked whether this was for a Wado Homecoming on the occasion of his release from Brum. But I was advised it was just a random mass check of tickets at a time when the huge number of schoolkids on the train overwhelm the onboard inspector. I saw no arrests, but was whisked away on the slow train to Poole before the action started.
