Ella Ann Toone (born 2 September 1999) is an English footballer who plays as a forward for FA WSL club Manchester United and England.

She has previously played for Manchester City and Blackburn Rovers, and has represented England at under-17, under-19 and under-21 level.

Club career[edit]

Manchester City[edit]

Toone joined Manchester City in the summer of 2016 from Blackburn Rovers having previously been a youth at Manchester United for six years but moved on due to a lack of senior women's team.[2][3] She continued to play with Blackburn in the National League on dual registration terms.[4] In July 2016, she made her senior Manchester City debut as a substitute in an 8–0 win over Aston Villa in the Continental Cup.[5]

She was nominated alongside four others for the FA Women's Young Player of the Year award in May 2018, an award eventually won by Beth Mead.[6][7]

Manchester United[edit]

In July 2018, Toone joined Manchester United for their inaugural season in the FA Women's Championship for the 2018–19 season, one of seven players to return to the senior side having played for the club at youth level.[8] She made her competitive debut for Manchester United, as a half-time substitute for Mollie Green, in a 1–0 League Cup victory against Liverpool on 19 August.[9] On 9 September, she scored her first senior goal, on her league debut, in United's opening game of the 2018–19 season, a 12–0 win away to Aston Villa.[10] She was voted FA Women's Championship player of the month for February 2019, having scored five goals in United's two league games, with four of them scored against Leicester City on 13 February.[11][12]

In the 2019–20 season, Toone scored five goals in a League Cup group stage game as United beat Leicester City 11–1 on 21 November 2019, equaling the club record set by Jessica Sigsworth the previous season.[13]

Ahead of the 2020–21 season, Toone signed a new two-year contract with an option for a third.[14]

International career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Toone represented England at the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup in Jordan.[15]

On 17 October 2017, Toone made her under-19 debut in an UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship qualification match against Kazakhstan, scoring twice in a 9–0 win.[16] She scored 5 across the qualifying campaign as England finished second to Germany in the elite round.[17][18]

In June 2018, Toone was part of the 35-player shortlist to make the England under-20 squad for the FIFA Women's U20 World Cup, but was ruled out through injury.[19][20]

Senior[edit]

In September 2020, Toone received her first senior national team call-up as part of a 30-player training camp at St George's Park.[21][22] She made her senior international debut on 23 February 2021 as a half-time substitute and scored a penalty in a 6–0 friendly win over Northern Ireland.[23][24]

Great Britain Olympic[edit]

In May 2021, Toone was named to the Team GB squad as one of four reserve players for the delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympics.[25] She was forced to withdraw from the pre-Olympic training camp held for the English players in June 2021 after testing positive for COVID-19.[26] On 1 July 2021, the IOC and FIFA confirmed rosters would be expanded from 18 to 22 meaning the four reserve players would be available for selection to the matchday squad.[27] Toone was named to the bench for the opening group game against Chile and appeared as a stoppage time substitute in the 2–0 win.

Personal life[edit]

Born in Tyldesley,[2] Toone attended Fred Longworth High School. After leaving secondary school, whilst playing for Manchester United, Toone enrolled onto a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma Sport Science course at Wigan and Leigh College.[28]
