Influential Ellie Tanser inspiring next generation of girls in football

The Tigers Trust announced recently they are set to deliver a Girls Only Football Centre this August.
The Trust’s Social Inclusion Team Leader Ellie Tanser was involved in the discussions around this, and she hopes that young females can follow her pathway into sport.
She said: “It’s brilliant that we are going to be holding something like this.
“When I was growing up there wasn’t really anything like this, so hopefully it will be really successful, and we can keep them running.”
Ellie, 27, first engaged with sport at the age of seven and admitted that opportunities for females were often hard to come by.
This didn’t deter Ellie from playing though and now nearly twenty years later, she captains Hull City Ladies/her current football team.
Whilst at school, Ellie undertook work experience with the Tigers Trust, and it was from here that she knew that a job in sport was destined to be.
She would go on to graduate in 2016 from the University of Hull with a First-Class Honours degree in Sport, Health and Exercise Science.
From here, Ellie started her professional journey with the Trust and in her own words, “hasn’t looked back since”.
Her role now on the Social Inclusion team sees her work across the region to increase participation and engagement in sport.
This work has not gone unnoticed, and Ellie recently received an award from the High Sheriff of the East Riding of Yorkshire for her efforts in the community.
The Tigers Trust would like to thank Ellie for all the tireless work she does and for consistently going above and beyond to inspire hundreds of females across the Hull and East Yorkshire area.
