Date side Varde
Elliott Leslie Ward (born 19 January 1985, Harrow, Middlesex) is an English footballer who plays as a defender for Blackburn Rovers.
He has played in the Premier League for West Ham United and Norwich City.
Ward made an impact on the West Ham first team during the second half of the 2004–05 season, while the club were in the Football League Championship.
Primarily due to injuries to more established defenders such as Christian Dailly and Malky Mackay, he found himself with the opportunity of partnering Anton Ferdinand in the centre of defence.
Ward came through the youth system of West Ham United, making his debut for the Under-17 side before joining the first team in August 2003.
