Harris and Jackson can make step up
But after giving a number of players, such as Brad Abbott, the chance to prove themselves at a higher level last season, Elliott believes he has unearthed two more gems.
“He’s a young, fit lad who’s good at getting around the park,” he said of Harris.
“He’s good in both boxes and brave, the type of player I like to get in.
“I hope he can improve himself because he did very well for me in two years at Shaw Lane.
“It’s a step up for him and he’s got to work hard and be consistent, and show that. But I think the fans will like him.”
Jackson can play anywhere down the left, but Elliott has brought him in to challenge Jordan Gough for the left-back role.
He added: “His best position is left back. I brought him in for that.
“I think’s it’s time he made the move up to this level to show what he can do.”
