Hailing from Cilfynydd, Jonathan Elley was drafted into the Blues age grade system as a hooker - the position that his father Paul occupied with distinction for Pontypridd in the eighties.

Capped by Wales at youth level, Jon gained experience playing for Beddau, Cardiff and Merthyr, before returning to his local club Cilfynydd following his release from the regional academy.

Converted into a strong scrummaging tight head prop, Jon trialled with Pontypridd in the summer of 2017 and was drafted into the club's senior squad for the ensuing season.

Jon is employed as an Aeronautical Engineer.
