Arsenal Honours: Since Gunner has been at the Club, we have won the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1994, the Premiership in 1998, 2002 and 2004, the FA Cup in 1998, 2002, 2003 and 2005 and the Charity/Community Shield in 1998, 1999, 2002 and 2004.

Individual Honours: Getting to celebrate winning the Premiership title with the team on the pitch at the end of the 2003/04 season.

International Appearances: Gunner has made many Champions League appearances at Highbury and also away at RC Lens in France.  He also travelled with the players to Arsenal's match against Dynamo Kyiv and made a special visit to the Children's Centre in Chernigov in Ukraine.

Gunner has seen and done many things in his career at Highbury, including making several televison appearances and many visits to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.  On several of these events he has met other Club mascots and has remained friends with lots of them.

One of his favourite trips away was when he went along to the Natural History Museum with 50 Junior Gunners, where they researched Gunner's ancestors.  Whilst they were there two very special visitors came to meet them - former Arsenal players David Seaman and Glenn Helder!

Another highlight was the filming of adverts for the FA Cup. Gunner attended these with all the other Club Macsots and he relished the opportunity to score a penalty past Chirpy (Spurs) and Fred the Red (Man United). He still talks about that today!

Gunner is one of the most respected mascots in football, his friendly nature has not only been welcomed from Arsenal supporters but from supporters all over Europe.
