Calum Elliot

Calum ElliotCalum came through the ranks at Hearts, he was primed to be a star of the future. His form throughout the 2005/06 season ensured he was considered a candidate for the 2006 Scottish PFA Young Player of the Year, but the title was eventually won by Kilmarnock’s Steven Naismith. Surprisingly Hearts told Elliot he wasn’t seen as a first team player as there new Chairman Vladimir Romanov spent big money trying to compete with the Old Firm and Elliot found himself well down the pecking order.

Having worked with him in the U21 Scotland setup, Motherwell manager Maurice Malpas was keen to add the 19 year old to his squad but he face competition from Falkirk and Dunfermline Athletic who were also after the young forwards signature. He would however join Motherwell on a six month loan deal.

For some reason or another he just didn’t fit into the scheme of things at Fir Park, the fans felt he wasn’t 100% committed to the cause and his comments about how he found it hard getting up every day to commute to Fir Park certainly done him no favours. Calum had the tools to be a useful striker as he was tall, athletic and had decent pace to get in behind defenders, but in a disappointing spell at Fir Park he could only muster the two goals in seventeen appearances.

Despite having enjoyed more success in a loan spell at First Division Livingston, Calum would struggle to cement a first team place at Hearts before being allowed to leave Tynecastle at the end of 2011. Perhaps the biggest highlight of his career came when he won the Lithuanian FA cup with Zalgiris Vilnius. Calum has been capped by Scotland at U20 & U21 level.

Sadly his career was cut short in his late 20s due to a succession of knee injuries, he would drop down to junior football to manage Edinburgh United but this spell was short lived.
