Mark Ellis began his career at Bolton Wanderers in the 2007/08 season but gained his first taste of senior football further down south at Torquay United, where he ended up penning a full time contract. 

Following the Gulls promotion to the Football League, Ellis began the 2009/10 season on loan at Conference Premier club Forest Green Rovers.

Ellis stayed at Torquay until the 2012/13 campaign and his next move saw a switch to League One to join Crewe Alexandra as he helped the Gresty Road side win the Football League Trophy, (now the Checkatrade Trophy). 

Ellis was released from Crewe after his second season and joined Shrewsbury Town where he made 41 appearances. Ellis, in October of the 2015/16 season, joined Carlisle on loan and later, signed a permanent deal with them following a string of strong performances for the League Two side.

In January 2017, Ellis joined Forest Green Rovers until the end of the season and made 17 appearances. At the beginning of the next 2017/18 season, he would be loaned to Leyton Orient for two months.

At the end of the 2017/2018 season, Ellis was made a Rover and he has already become a popular figure at Prenton Park.
