Skipper departs

21 May 2019

Blades skipper Ellie Gilliatt has announced the 18/19 season will be her first and last season at Sheffield United. Commenting on not taking the decision lightly, Gilliatt says she has been proud to have captained the side through a great first season in the FA Women’s Championship. 
 
Blades boss Carla Ward talks about the step up required next season in order to push for a place at the top of the table. “Ellie has done so well this season managing her career, family and playing for United.” Ellie finished off her time at the Blades scoring the opening goal at Bramall Lane on 11th May against Millwall to which the side went on to win 6-0 securing their seventh consecutive win this season. 
 
Sheffield United wish Ellie all the best for the future and thank her for her commitment and contribution to the team this season.
