Although she’s still only in her early twenties, Manchester City’s Ellie Roebuck has long been on the scene having made her senior debut back in 2018. Roebuck was a regular feature for England throughout the youth age groups and has a growing amount of international experience to her name. Roebuck and Sandy MacIver were both selected to play in the 2021 Olympic Games, in which Roebuck donned the gloves as Team GB’s number one.
Roebuck is now firmly back between the sticks for her club after spending some time out with injury last year and is once again showcasing her perceptive and quick movement. Roebuck is perhaps the most agile of Wiegman’s keepers, using her quick footwork and sudden shifts of weight to execute effective body position. Roebuck is also known for her ‘sweeper’ abilities and is aware enough to come some way off her line to tidy up without compromising readiness to protect the goal.
