ARSENAL AND SPURS TEAM UP FOR WHEELCHAIR FOOTBALL
Arsenal midfield star Denilson recently attended an event to celebrate wheelchair (powerchair) football. In attendance at the Sobell Leisure Centre, just down the road from Emirates Stadium, were teams from both north London clubs who have been sponsored by Middlesex University. In February 2007 the Community Departments of Arsenal and Spurs also won an award for joint football sessions with visually impaired children.
