Welcome home, heroes

Continental champions Leah Williamson, Rafaelle Souza, Beth Mead, and Lotte Wubben-Moy received a heartfelt heroes' welcome upon their return to London Colney this morning, winner's medals in tow.

The welcome party included our men's and women's first teams, managers Jonas Eidevall and Mikel Arteta, the training staff, childhood coaches, and a host of advocates from the women's football community.

Williamson captained England's Lionesses to a historic win at the UEFA Euro 2022, in front of a record-breaking 87,000 strong at Wembley, while Souza led Brazil to a fantastic Copa América Femenina victory. Williamson and Souza will meet as international captains when their respective sides face each other in the inaugural Women's Finalissima in February of next year.

Meanwhile, Mead set the Euros on fire as the Player of the Tournament and Golden Boot winner, netting a staggering total of six goals and five assists. Wubben-Moy, as another member of the 23-woman squad that finally brought football home, was also the driving force behind the Lionesses' public letter advocating for an ongoing Euros legacy that allows all schoolgirls the opportunity to play football. 

Our champions will be back in Arsenal colours when our WSL season kicks off on September 11 with an away fixture against Manchester City. A couple of weeks later, We will take over the Emirates Stadium for the North London Derby. 30,000 tickets have already been sold so don't miss your chance to join us.

Ellen White announces her retirement

Ellen White playing for Arsenal

Former Arsenal striker Ellen White has announced her retirement from competitive football.

White began her record-breaking career at Arsenal after being scouted at as an eight-year-old. She spent eight years in our youth teams before moving to Chelsea in 2005.

She returned to Arsenal and Meadow Park five years later, in time for the inaugural WSL season in 2011. During her three years here, White made 38 WSL appearances and scored 11 goals, helping us towards three consecutive league titles and two FA cups. 

White is the Lionesses' greatest ever goalscorer with 52 goals – only one off Wayne Rooney's record total for the men's side. She has attended three World Cups for England and earlier this summer, she was a key member of the squad that won the 2022 UEFA Women's Euros.

We wish Ellen all the best in her retirement.
