White: Let's kick on from here

Ellen White says City are looking to end the season firing on all cylinders after last weekend’s Continental Cup success against Chelsea.

Gareth Taylor’s side will now push hard for a Champions League spot in the eight FA WSL matches that remain as well as attempting to complete a domestic cup double by winning the Women’s FA Cup where have already progressed to the quarter-final stage.


Reflecting on the Conti Cup win, White said: “We really did want to win it, but we don’t want to stop there.

“It’s amazing for the whole Club and for us, it gives us a lot of momentum to take into the remaining games coming up.”

The 3-1 win over Chelsea last weekend was the perfect fillip for City who have been building momentum in the second half of the campaign as a number of injured stars return from long-term lay-offs.

White was on target against Chelsea, with her goal sandwiched between two Caroline Weir strikes.

She admits the goal was yet another special moment for her is sky blue.

“To help the team win a trophy was a really special moment,” said White.

“Lauren (Hemp) did really well in the build-up so I appreciate that and Caroline Weir contributed with a very good performance.

“The whole team were amazing – it was a phenomenal second-half performance.

“Obviously, we want to get to the FA Cup final as well, keep pushing in the league and winning as many games as we can to ensure we get a Champions League spot.

“Collectively, as a whole squad, we thank everyone for their support but we’re not stopping here – we want to improve and win more games, climb that league and, as I say, get to the FA Cup final as well.”
