Kelly Smith, 35, has signed a new contract with Arsenal to continue in her role as player coach.
The Arsenal captain was appointed as Shelley Kerr's assistant in August 2013, and has excelled in her new coaching role. England's all-time leading goalscorer will continue on the pitch in 2014 too.
She follows Rachel Yankey, Alex Scott, Emma Byrne, Jordan Nobbs and Danielle Carter in committing her future to the Club this pre-season.
Kelly said: "I'm delighted to have agreed a new contract with Arsenal. Coaching has provided a fresh and exciting challenge for me, and I'm really enjoying combining my new role with my responsibilities on the pitch."
General manager Vic Akers added: "Kelly has been an exceptional player for us over the years and has now become an exceptional coach too.
"Her experience, her passion and her knowledge of the game are all having a really positive impact on the rest of the squad, and helping with the development of the younger girls in particular."
