Player Profile

The left-sided attacker must have had one of the shortest City careers, with just six minutes of action as a substitute during the Foxes' Premier League days in 2001.

Peter Taylor brought him to Filbert Street from non-league football but he couldn't make an impact in the top-flight of English football - quite a step up after starting his career at clubs such as Southport, Chorley and Altrincham, where he moved from to Leicester.

Ellison's six-minutes came on the biggest stage of all, at Old Trafford against Manchester United, but he couldn't convince Taylor, or following manager Dave Bassett, that he was first-team material and played more games for the reserves. His City career came to an end when he was allowed to have a trial with Stockport County and he signed for £55,000.

He was reunited with Taylor further in his career at Hull City and also went on to play for Chester, Tranmere Rovers and Rotherham United.
