Everyone at the Club is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our former Chief Scout Steve Rowley after a short illness.

Steve, 63, had been associated with the Club since January 1980, when he began a part-time role in our youth scouting operations in Essex. Notable early successes in the identification of talent - including Tony Adams and Ray Parlour - led to a full-time position during George Graham's time as manager.

Upon his arrival in 1996, Arsène Wenger appointed Steve as our Chief Scout, a position he held until 2017.

During four decades with the Club, Steve and his network of scouts were responsible for identifying and securing many players instrumental in on-pitch success for the Club. 

Our thoughts are with Steve’s family and friends at this time.

Rest in peace, Steve.
