Welcome to the first instalment of our new series where we catch up with players that we have helped earn a scholarship to study and play soccer at college in America.
Ellie was part of the Tottenham Hotspurs U23s squad and despite her strong footballing CV she attended a Soccer Assist trial in Summer 2021.
Having impressed with her attitude as well as skills, Ellie was offered a place on the Soccer Assist programme. We then began to build her highlights tape in order to send to coaches across America.
There was a lot of interest shown in the powerful centre-mid, but it was at a showcase match at St. Georges Park last December where Ellie caught the attention of the head coach of the Ragin Cajuns. She was quickly offered a full scholarship at the University where she would be able to study her chosen subject and play the game she loves.
