Rachel Yankey OBE leaves Arsenal Ladies after a glittering career. One of the most decorated players in the history of the women’s game, Rachel has helped us to eight league titles, nine FA Cups and a UEFA Women’s Cup in a Gunners career that spans 20 years. Amongst many highlights, she won the quadruple with us in 2007. Rachel is also one of the most capped England players of all time, with 129 caps for her country. Away from her playing career, Rachel has worked tirelessly at the grassroots level of the game, running her own football programme and mentoring young players. Her efforts were recognised with an OBE in 2014. We would like to thank Rachel for her outstanding contribution to the club, and to wish her the very best for the future.
