Elliott Ronto is an Australian born Witham Town front man, who has scored plenty of the goals in the Bostik North this season, we caught up with him for a quickfire Q&A
Earliest Football Memories?
I started playing in Australia when I was six years old because one of my mates was playing. And I remember scoring my first goal which was a sliding reach to the ball and it dribbled in. I celebrated with my dad who was coach at the time. I have never looked back since.
I have to say Heybridge Swifts for that one
Best player you have played with… and best player you have played against?
Growing up through academies and A-league sides, I played with a lot a players who are now pro and have been pro but the best player I have played with would be an Australian international player, Tommy Oar. The best player I have played against would be Matt McKay. Another Australian international who plays in the A-League.
Always chase your dream and know that anything is possible if you put 100% work into it. So I moved to England!
I love a good Chinese. Can’t beat the classic Mongolian beef!
If you could change one rule in football, what would it be?
I can’t think of anything I would change. In my opinion, you don’t need to fix something that isn’t broken.
Michael Owen has always been my favourite. My uncle sent me a VCR of a training video he made when I was young.
Best thing about Non-League?
I love the passion and desire of all the players. Also the dedicated fans who come to the games every week.
Personally, I am aiming to get 15 goals and 20 assists as a midfielder, and I am not far off! But as a team I believe we should finish way higher on the table than we currently are!
