Arsenal transfer news
Chelsea legend Frank Lampard and Arsenal Ladies star Casey Stoney have both been recognised by the Queen in her traditional birthday honours list.
Former England midfielder Lampard received an OBE for his services to sport, while Stoney, who is at the Women’s World Cup with England this summer, was given an MBE for an outstanding career in the women’s game.
Lampard is undoubtedly one of the finest players of his generation and his OBE is a fitting reward after he finally leaves his long career in the Premier League to join MLS giants New York City FC.
Speaking about the OBE, the former Manchester City loan star said it was “an extremely proud moment for myself and my family”.
Stoney, meanwhile, has also enjoyed a long career in the game, playing for Arsenal in two spells, as well as featuring for the likes of Chelsea, Charlton Athletic and Lincoln. The 33-year-old also has 118 caps for England and received the FA International Player of the Year Award in 2007/08.
