Oxford City Ladies FC’s 2018 season was plagued with injuries. This didn’t stop Ellie White grabbing her first team opportunities with both hands. Ellie made 8 First Team appearances last season , impressing enough to be offered a place in Ramzan's squad for the upcoming season.
Ellie told us “I’d played with the U18s for most of the season. Through injury, I got my first team opportunity a bit earlier than I expected. I had been training with the first team a bit so I knew most of the players and they were really nice to me . It was a bit nerve-racking making my first appearance but I just tried to do my best. I’m really pleased to be offered a contract and be part of it again.”
Waheed told us: “Ellie’s opportunity came a bit earlier then we were planning but she grabbed it. She’s shown maturity beyond her years with the performances she’s put in. I think the most memorable time was watching her start against Marianne Spacey’s Southampton. She just played like she plays them every week. She’s a really exciting prospect for us and I’m pleased to be working with her again.”
