England forward Ellen White will join her teammates as the Lionesses go head-to-head against Cameroon in the Women’s World Cup last-16 on Sunday. England’s place in the knockout stages was already confirmed ahead of Wednesday night’s 2-0 victory over Japan – where White scored both goals. England will face Cameroon in Valenciennes today as they attempt to reach the quarterfinals.
And White, who is a forward at Manchester City, will likely be supported by her husband Callum Convery, who also works in the world of football.
Convery works as a sports development officer for the Nottinghamshire Football Association.
In a newsletter for the team at Nottinghamshire FA, Convery revealed some strange hobbies he enjoys in his sparetime.

The newsletter, issued in November 2018, quoted Convery as saying: “Outside of football I enjoy watching women’s football, going on stag-dos and making home made pasta.”
The newsletter also read that “Callum enjoys going to watch FC Cologne in the Bundesliga” when he can.
And it seems as going to pre-wedding knees ups isn’t just a favourite with Convery.

Last season, White was the top goal scorer in the Women’s Super League and received the award for the England team’s player of the year.
But the England forwarded was not present at the ceremony, because much like her husband, White also appears to enjoy attending hen-dos.
She the The Sunday Times: “I was at (fellow England player) Steph Houghton’s hen party.
“It was a complete shock. Callum had to go up and receive the trophy for me.”
White and Convery currently live together in Nottingham.
The 30-year-old has previously revealed that although they both work in the world of football, her husband is no competition on the pitch.
She told the publication: “He used to like playing football.
“Now, if we have a knock around together, he usually ends up in goal.”
