ELLEN SCORES AN ENGLAND SUCCESS

(THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10) NOT content with plying her trade for the world's richest football club, Aylesbury teenager Ellen White took her scoring feats onto the international stage when she grabbed a match-winning brace for England women U17s against Switzerland last month.

The Waddesdon sixth former, aged 16, gave England the lead on six minutes only for the Swiss to equalise with 21 minutes remaining of their friendly at Woking FC on October 27.

However, with just under 15 minutes left, White struck again to give her side a hard-fought victory. Ellen's success has been the talk of her school and head of physical education at Waddesdon, Ben Wilson, paid tribute to the former Grange School student.

"Ellen has made a fantastic start to sixth-form life at Waddesdon. She is an extremely modest and talented all-round sportswoman whose commitment to school sport has been outstanding," he said.

Former Aylesbury Town player Ellen, who has been playing football since she was eight years old, first made the England squad a year ago whilst playing for Arsenal. She has since moved to fellow London club Chelsea and hopes to go all the way in the increasingly popular women's game.

"I want to go through to the seniors for Chelsea and England and hopefully I'll stay in the England squad now and keep playing well. I want to say thank you to my mum and dad and all my family for their help and, of course, Mr Wilson," she said.
