Anthony Elding signed towards the end of July in 2008 for a reported fee of around 200,000. The powerful striker was a long term target for Steve Holland, having previously approached Elding twice about signing for Crewe.

Elding has made a slow rise through the leagues. Starting off at his local club Boston in 1999, he later joined Stevenage in 2003. After over 100 appearances and 54 goals Elding made the 40,000 move to Kettering in 2006. However, things didn't work out and a few months later he returned to his original club Boston.

After another six months at League Two Boston he made the move to Stockport County, where he was to make a name for himself. In just 12 months at the Hatters he scored 26 goals in 45 starts, alerting interest from Leeds, Hartlepool and Crewe.

A the end of January 2008 he rejected Crewe and Hartlepool in favour of Leeds United, the club his family supports through thick and thin. However, it was another disappointing move. After four starts and five sub appearances Elding was told by new Leeds manager Gary McAllistair he was free to find a new club. In the summer of 2008 he made the move to Crewe after over a month of rumours and talks.

Elding was released by Crewe at the end of 2009.
