Elliott Ricardo Wignal-List (born 12 May 1997) is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for League Two club Stevenage.

List started his career in the youth academy at Crystal Palace. He was released by Palace and subsequently earned his first professional contract at Gillingham in May 2015. Prior to making any first-team appearances for Gillingham, List was loaned out for a month to National League club Braintree Town in October 2015. List made over 100 appearances for Gillingham over the next four years. He signed for League Two club Stevenage in August 2019.

Career[edit]

Gillingham[edit]

List began his career in the Crystal Palace youth academy.[3] He was released from the Palace youth set-up at the end of the 2014–15 season.[3] He subsequently went on trial with Gillingham and played in a number of development matches, ultimately earning a one-year professional contract with the club in May 2015.[3] Having made no appearances for the first-team during the opening months of the 2015–16 season,[4] List was loaned to National League club Braintree Town in October 2015.[5] He made his debut for Braintree in a 2–0 win over Harlow Town in the FA Cup fourth qualifying round.[5] Both of List's appearances during the brief one-month loan agreement for Braintree came in the FA Cup.[6]

On his return to his parent club, List made his first-team debut on 26 December 2015,[4] coming on as a substitute in a victory over Swindon Town at the County Ground.[7] He went on to make six first-team appearances for Gillingham in League One throughout the remainder of the campaign, all of which from the substitute's bench.[4] List signed a further one-year contract extension with Gillingham in June 2016.[8] List featured predominantly as a substitute during the 2016–17 season, making 19 appearances in all competitions, of which 14 were as a substitute.[9] He remained at Gillingham for the 2017–18 campaign, playing 28 times during a season that saw Gillingham finish in 17th place in League One.[10][11] The season also marked his first professional goal as he came on as a second-half substitute to score a stoppage-time equaliser in a 1–1 draw away at Bristol Rovers on 28 April 2018.[10][12] The following week, the club's final match of the season, List once again came on as a substitute to score, this time in a 5–2 home victory over Plymouth Argyle.[10][13] He signed a two-year contract extension with Gillingham in May 2018.[14]

The 2018–19 season would ultimately serve as a breakthrough campaign for List in terms of number of starting appearances, as well as seeing an increase in his goalscoring output from midfield.[15] He scored his first goal of the season courtesy of a "stunning solo goal" in a 1–1 draw against Coventry City on 25 August 2018.[16] List scored the only goal of the game as Gillingham secured a 1–0 home victory over Premier League club Cardiff City in the FA Cup third round on 5 January 2019.[17] He scored eight times during the season, playing 45 matches in all competitions as Gillingham finished the season in mid-table in League One.[15][18]

Stevenage[edit]

List signed for League Two club Stevenage on 31 August 2019.[19] He joined the club for an undisclosed fee.[19] List made his Stevenage debut on the same day his signing was announced, playing the first 63 minutes in a 2–2 draw at home to Macclesfield Town.[20]
