Elvis Hammond is a forward who was loaned to Rovers by Fulham in 2001. During his spell with the Pirates at the beginning of the 2001-02 season he made seven league appearances, four of which were from the bench, and one substitute appearance in the League Cup. He didn't score any goals in his time with the club.
Elvis, who is originally from Accra in Ghana, came through the Fulham academy, and broke through into their professional squad in 2000. He remained with the Cottagers for five years, but only made eleven league and two cup appearances in that time. While at Fulham he had loan spells at Bristol Rovers, Norwich City, Dutch side RBC Roosendaal and Leicester City.
Following his loan at Leicester, where he had made six loan appearances without scoring, he was signed by the Foxes for £225,000. His time at the Walkers Stadium was not a huge success however, and he scored only eight goals in 58 league games. He was released in the summer of 2008, and joined Cheltenham Town where he spent two years and played 46 League games, scoring nine goals, before moving on to Conference South side Woking in 2010. After two years which saw him playing regular first team football, making 73 league appearances and scoring 22 goals, he was released by Woking in 2012.
The summer of 2012 saw Elvis with bigger problems than finding a new team for himself. He was tried and convicted of money laundering in July and sentenced to one year in prison, but he was back playing football by the end of October, this time for Farnborough in the Conference South. In February he joined Hastings United on a month's loan, and although they had the opportunity to keep him until the end of the season, partly because of the travel arrangements they were having to make for him due to his inability to drive.
