Arsenal Football Club is delighted to announce that Lady Nina Bracewell-Smith has been confirmed as an Honorary Vice-President of the Club.

Lady Nina spent three years on the Arsenal board of directors from April 2005 to December 2008. Her family has been actively involved in the Club for more than 70 years.

Lady Nina’s father-in-law, Sir Guy Bracewell-Smith, was on the Board of Directors from May 1953 to September 1976. Sir Guy was the son of the former Arsenal Chairman Sir Bracewell-Smith, who was a board director from 1938 and Chairman from 1948 to 1962.

Arsenal Chairman Peter Hill-Wood said: “We are delighted that Lady Nina is becoming an Honorary Vice-President of the Club. This is in recognition of Lady Nina’s contribution during her time as a director and also the important role the Bracewell-Smith family played in the Club’s development.”

The appointment does not change the structure of the current Board of Directors.
