The team at Laundry & Cleaning Today came across a story featured on the MailOnline of Arsenal ladies icon, Alex Scott, in an Instagram picture with Ian Wright when she was working at Arsenal’s laundry. 

She now sits alongside him as pundit. As the MailOnline reports, two Arsenal legends in very different stages of their career: one already a fully-fledged Gunners icon and England international, the other working in the laundry room at Highbury. 

Scott wrote on Instagram: “Yes I did work in the Arsenal laundry age 16/17 to earn some extra cash, and I got to have a photo with my fav@wrightyofficial. “But I still pinch myself as I fast forward to the now. 

I managed to go on to captain@arsenalwfc and make a career for myself along the way #dreambig. This #throwback couldn’t wait.” Scott’s hung up her boots at the end of last season after a career which yielded 148 appearances for the club and 140 caps for England. 

She is now working as a pundit and Scott has since sat alongside Wright on shows such as Sky Sports’ The Debate – over a decade and a half after that photo was taken.
