Former England international right-back Don Howe gave Arsenal marvellous service in various capacities. He turned professional with West Brom in November 1952 and was capped 23 times before moving to Highbury for £42,000 in April 1964. Scoring once in 70 First Division games for Arsenal, he became first-team coach in October 1967 and helped to plot the 1970/71 'double' triumph. He rejoined West Brom as manager in July 1971 but returned to Arsenal as chief coach and managed the Gunners between December 1983 and March 1986. After various coaching and management posts, he was Arsenal's Head Youth Coach. (With thanks to Leigh Edwards)
