Kelly Smith was born in Watford on 29 October 1978 and started playing football at the age of six. Prevented from playing in mixed teams by jealous parents, she eventually found a girls side and was soon spotted by American scouts who offered her a university scholarship. By 17, she was already a striker for Arsenal Ladies and an England international. In 1999, Kelly became England's first ever women's professional footballer and played for Philadelphia Charge in the WUSA before returning home to win every honour in the domestic game with Arsenal, including their sensational quadruple in 2007 when they became champions of Europe. She was named Player of the Year for the second year in a row in 2007 and awarded an MBE in 2008. Kelly has scored a record 43 goals in more than 100 appearances for her country, helping England to the final of the European Championships in 2009 and the quarterfinals of the World Cup in 2007. She currently plays her club football for Boston Breakers in the USA.
