ENGLAND and Arsenal ladies soccer star Kelly Smith has been made an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for her services to women's football.

Kelly, aged 29, who lives in London Colney, said: "It is an honour and very exciting. I am flabbergasted, to be honest. I think I will be more nervous going to Buckingham Palace than I would be before any football game."

The talented forward returned to Arsenal three years ago after spending eight successful years in the United States. She is an established international and featured at last year's women's World Cup Finals in China.
