Ellie Mason: 'We're going to keep shocking people'

Nov 10, 2019, 08:00 AM
There's been no shortage of shocks in Dartford, home of the London City Lionesses.
 
The brand-new FA Women’s Championship side are currently second in the league – with five wins in seven games.

According to their team captain Ellie Mason, things are looking very positive.
 
The club was created after the decision, at the end of last season, by Millwall Lionesses to break away from Millwall and go it alone. 
 
That saw the birth of London City, an independent side without any ties to a men’s team at all.

In this episode Ellie tells us about the unique mission this club have set themselves, to prove that you can make it as an independent women's club.

She tells us how they've shocked everyone so far and why, despite only being a few months old, people can keep expecting to be shocked.

The 23-year-old defender also tells us about her career so far and just why football is so important to society, women and young girls who want to get involved.
