Ladies footballing legend Ellen White visited youngsters at Forest Town’s Garibaldi College this week.

The Notts County and England International forward visited the school to inspire and motivate Key Stage 3 students to participate in sport, and to work with sixth form sports students.

Ellen told Chad: “It was a real pleasure to be invited into Garibaldi College to talk to the students about my experiences and motivations within my sport. I hope the students were able to take something home with them and develop further as both students at school and young adults outside of school.”

Headteacher Ryan Hawley added: “‘Ellen’s visit provided real inspiration for our students. They were in awe of the fact that they had seen her on FIFA 16.

“ Ellen talked to the students about her journey through life and how football has supported her to develop the life skills needed to be  a strong person.”
