On Tuesday, April 16 the annual ball squad trials took place at the Islington Arts and Media School, and yet again eager Junior Gunners competed for a place in next season’s squad.

The JGs competed in drills that showed their concentration, throwing, catching and team work skills – and next week the 20 chosen JGs will be notified. Arsenal’s ball squad always consists of Junior Gunners – and the 20 young fans attend every match at Emirates Stadium, showing their support for their favourite team.

Check out the picture gallery below to see highlights from the trials.
