ARSENAL Ladies striker Kelly Smith is leaving the Gunners to go and play in the United States for the second time.

The 30-year-old, who lives in WGC, will be joining Boston Breakers for the start of the 2009 season in the Women's Professional Soccer League, in April.

Kelly, who last month was the only English woman to be voted in the top 10 female footballers in the world, made her debut for Arsenal in 1996.

She rejoined the North London outfit in 2005 after eight years in America, playing for Philadelphia Charge and New Jersey Wildcats.
