Notts County Ladies FC are delighted to announce the signing of England international striker Ellen White, who joins on a three year contract having left Arsenal.
Ellen first joined Arsenal aged just eight, staying at the Gunners for eight years before joining Chelsea. After three successful seasons at Chelsea, in which Ellen finished top scorer every season, the striker moved to Leeds Carnegie where she came under the management of Notts County Ladies manager Rick Passmoor.
Whilst at Leeds with Rick, the team lifted the FA Women's Premier League Cup with a 3-1 victory over Everton, in which Ellen White netted a brace.
After Leeds Carnegie's unsuccessful bid to join the maiden FA Women's Super League, Ellen rejoined Arsenal, spending three years at the London club. Whilst at Arsenal, Ellen twice won the FA WSL, all three FA WSL Continental Cups she competed in and twice winning the FA Women's Cup, scoring in both the FA Cup and Continental Cup Finals last season.
Having previously represented England at a number of youth levels, Ellen made her senior debut in 2010, scoring in a 3-0 victory over Austria. After a successful debut Ellen has gone on to make 42 appearances for the national side, scoring 17 times. Adding to these impressive accolades Ellen was also selected to represent Great Britain in the London 2012 Olympics, appearing in all but one of the games.
Manager Rick Passmoor is delighted to have signed the striker: "Ellen represents what this football club is about, playing football and training full time. She's an extremely talented player, we are delighted to have her here and we're very excited for the future.
"Signing an international player of Ellen's standard shows our ambition, and intent, beliefs that Ellen shares and we can't wait to start working with her."
Notts County Ladies' Chief Executive Luke Negus-Hill said of White's arrival: "This is a fantastic signing for us and a real signal of our intent to be challenging in our first year as Notts County Ladies in the FA WSL.
"What is most important for me, and for this club, is that we sign players who come to Meadow Lane for the right reasons, because they believe in what we are doing here and want to be a part of that and to represent Notts County.
"I cannot stress how important that is. We are looking to build a team here at Notts, a group of players that play for each other and for the club, because that is how we see the pathway to success, through hard work and togetherness."
