New signing - ex-Arsenal & England forward

Postby MCB » 29 Jun 2018, 11:23

Yeh - I know most of you don't give a fig about the London Bees or Women's Football, and there is even a separate forum

She's the most capped England player in history - bypassing Peter Shilton.

BUT

This is a hell of a marquee signing for the club. With clubs like Sheffield FC running out of money I love seeing this aspect of the club growing.

She is a huge name in Women's Football and has been a frequent guest whenever the BBC shows an England Women's football match, so this is indeed a coup for the club.

I notice she was filming her Cbeebies TV series at The Hive. I assume TK did his 'Edgar Davids' act, and signed her up whilst she was at The Hive?

Rachel Yankey has been awarded both the MBE and the OBE for services to football.
Has anyone else with connections to the Bees received any honours from the Queen?

I looked on Wikipedia to see whether Jimmy Greaves had received an honour. No mention of one.
Surely he has?????

I think he’s the only member of the 1966 World Cup squad who didn’t!

I had to go to The Hague last week for a workshop. Out of 12 attendees we had an Aby, a Bibi and a Vibey. All pronounced <capital letter>-bee.
