Midfield dynamo Ellie is a wonderfully astute and rangy passer and had a string of spectacular long range strikes in 2016-17. She started playing football at 5 for her local boys’ team, Rogerstone Rangers and at 12 joined Cardiff City where she stayed until 20, progressing from U-16s captain to the first team and playing in the Women’s Champions League in Copenhagen. She also represented Wales u-19s in competitions in Portugal and the Netherlands. She then played for Cardiff University for three years and after rehabbing from a serious injury, she joined in 2015-16.
