I love this picture so much. I am so grateful I got the opportunity to learn from these world-class players. I can’t express how much it means to have been a part of such a special club. Sadly, I am saying goodbye as I will be continuing my journey elsewhere. I will always have a place in my heart for Arsenal, and I am thankful for all the opportunities it has brought me. I wish the best to all Gunners, it was a pleasure to play with you, I learned so much each and every day.❤️
Flores featured in match day squads for the first team without ever appearing in a professional game, she did get 8 minutes against Bayern Munich in last July’s Emirates Cup game against Bayern Munich Frauen. She was born in Canada, but has a Mexican father and moved to England when she was 14.
Flores is a very highly rated young midfielder and she looks set to join WSL London rivals Chelsea. Fellow youngster Ruby Grant will also leave this summer for a scholarship at the University of North Carolina.
