Ellen White and the England Women’s team will warm up for the 2013 European Championships in Sweden with a friendly against the host nation tonight (6pm, BBC3).

But the former Grange School pupil, who lives in Fairford Leys, doesn’t seemed fazed and is enjoying the pre-tournament build-up.

She said: “Arrived safely in Sweden yesterday, exciting times ahead!

“We had a rest, played some crazy golf and had a training session, all in a hard days work in Sweden. Going to miss my family but looking forward to the games starting.”

England kick off the tournament proper against Spain on Friday July 12. All the Lionesses matches will be screened live on BBC.
