Ellie Roebuck[1] (born 23 September 1999) is an English professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Women's Super League club Manchester City and the England national team. She has also represented England at youth level.

Club career[edit]

Roebuck started her career at Sheffield United's centre of excellence, before leaving to join Manchester City, aged 15.[2][3]

In January 2018, Roebuck signed her first professional contract with Manchester City.[4] A month later, she made her senior breakthrough from the development squad, due to an early injury to Karen Bardsley, keeping a clean sheet in a 0–0 league draw against Chelsea.[5] On 23 May 2019, Roebuck, having been part of the side that won both the FA Cup and League Cup, extended her contract with Manchester City for another two years.[6] At the end of the 2019–20 season, Roebuck was awarded the inaugural Barclays FA WSL Golden Glove having kept ten clean sheets in 16 league appearances.[7]

Roebuck missed much of the 2021–22 season with a calf injury, limiting her to 10 league appearances out of 22, her lowest since 2017. In addition she missed several international fixtures.[8]

International career[edit]

Roebuck was part of the England squad that won bronze medal in the 2018 U20 World Cup in France, however, she was an unused substitute in all the fixtures.[9][10]

In October 2018, England manager Phil Neville named Roebuck and Manchester City team-mate Georgia Stanway in his squad for the first time.[11] Roebuck made her senior team debut as a 79th minute substitute for Mary Earps on 8 November 2018 against Austria.[12] She made her first start, before being replaced by Earps at half time, in a 2–1 win against Spain on 9 April 2019.[13]

On 27 May 2021 it was announced that Roebuck had been selected as one of the two goalkeepers in the Great Britain women's Olympic football team for the 2020 Olympics.[14] She made her debut on 21 July 2021 in a 2–0 win against Chile.[15] In June 2022, Roebuck was included in the England squad which won UEFA Women's Euro 2022.[16][17]

Personal life[edit]

Roebuck was born in Sheffield and grew up as a Sheffield United supporter.[18] Whilst at City, she attended Connell Sixth Form College to complete a sports qualification.[19]
