Experienced wide man with more than 300 Football League appearances who signed for Morecambe in the summer of 2011 after being released by Rotherham.
Ellison started his career in non-league football, playing for Southport, Chorley, Conwy United and Altrincham before joining Leicester City for £50,000 in 2001.
Ellison only played one game for the Foxes and moved to Stockport County and then Chester City before a £100,000 move to Hull City in January 2005.
In 2006 he joined Tranmere Rovers for an undisclosed fee and a year later returned to Chester City, staying in the Football League with a move to Rotherham when City were relegated.
The winger played more than 60 games for the Millers before being released at the end of the 2010-11 season.
Ellison was then surprised by a knock on the door from then newly appointed Shrimps manager Jim Bentley who made the wide man his first signing as Shrimps manager.
Ellison has since become a crowd favourite at the Globe Arena regularly getting on the scoresheet.
