Kelly Smith MBE, visits Myatt Garden
As part of our ongoing Aspirations Assembly, the children at Myatt Garden were delighted and honoured to have a visit from Kelly Smith MBE.
Kelly was the first British woman to play football professionally in the USA and she holds the record for the highest number of goals scored for England. Kelly played for Arsenal and was also England Captain. She has won the FA , UEFA and Continental Cup and has 117 caps for England.
The children learned about her experience and her travels around the world playing football. Kelly retired from football in 2017 and is now a full time Coach on the women’s reserve team at Arsenal.
