Ellen Toni White (born 9 May 1989) is an English international football forward who plays her club football for Notts County Ladies of the FA WSL. White has made over 40 appearances for the England national team since her debut in March 2010, playing at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup. She was also part of the Great Britain team for the 2012 Summer Olympics.
White's father, Jon White, ran a soccer academy called 'Mini Dux' in Aylesbury, which White played her early football at. She then played football for Aylesbury Town before being spotted by Arsenal Ladies scouts at the age of eight.
Leaving Arsenal aged 16, White was top scorer for Chelsea Ladies for three seasons before leaving to join Leeds Carnegie in June 2008. Within months of signing for Leeds, White suffered a cruciate ligament injury that kept her out of the game for a lengthy spell. In February 2010, White scored twice as Leeds beat Everton Ladies in the final of the FA Women's Premier League Cup.
In July 2010 White was delighted to return to Arsenal after five years away. The Leeds squad had broken up following a funding crisis. White left Arsenal at the end of the 2013 season joining Notts County in time for the 2014 season.
After being selected in England's 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup squad, White scored a "wonder goal" in a 2–0 group stage win over Japan, who ultimately won the trophy. White was personally recognised for her scintillating form over 2011, being voted the England Women's Player of the Year.
White was selected for England's UEFA Women's Euro 2013 Squad. However, after scoring England's only goal in the friendly defeat to Sweden leading into the tournament, White was left frustrated by lack of service throughout the tournament as England crashed out at the group stage.
