Having started last season with a bang after firing in a stunning hat-trick in our first home game against Blackpool, Theo went on to prove himself as one the Premier League's most feared wingers. With his electric pace and keen eye for goal our number 14 proved to be a key member of the team yet again. And he's looking to build on that with even more goals this season with each dedicated to his young fans as our Team JGs ambassador.

Growing up Theo looked up to Arsenal legend Thierry Henry. Inspired by Theirry's passion, commitment and status as the Club's all-time top scorer, he dreamt of one day pulling on an Arsenal shirt and following in his hero's footsteps. Now, as one of Arsenal's most important players, not only has done that he even wears the same number as his idol! And if that wasn't enough he even got to play with Henry in his first season at the Club.

Now, as an idol to many young Arsenal fans himself, he can't wait to become the Junior Gunners ambassador for Team JGs. So much so that as a Team JG you will even find a copy of one of his books, 'TJ and the Winning Goal', in your exclusive membership pack.

"When I was your age everything was about football so I know just how you all feel as Junior Gunners. I'm really looking forward to the season and can't wait to pull on the shirt again, especially as it's our 125th anniversary season. To be part of that is going to be something really special, but to be the Team JGs ambassador puts the icing on the cake."
