Arsenal Women are one of the most successful football teams ever.
But who are the best women to have ever played for the club?
Kelly is one of the biggest names in women’s football in England, and she achieved that status with a massive amount of success playing for Arsenal over three separate spells.
The forward won the Women’s Premier League four times, the UEFA Women’s Cup once, the FA Cup three times, the Premier League Cup once and the Community Shield twice. She was never short on trophies during her first two spells with the club (1996-97 and 2005-09).
Her third spell was disrupted by injury problems, and she only managed 17 appearances over the final five years of her career, but her status as an Arsenal great was already
Hope Powell said of the England international, “Kelly is one of those players who come along only once or twice in a lifetime. In the men’s game you’d think of Diego Maradona or Messi, players with a unique talent, and that’s what Kelly has.”
