Hey Junior Gunners - we've got a fantastic opportunity for you to become part of our ball squad for next season.

The ball squad have been an integral part of a home match day this season, helping to keep games flowing from their pitch-side seats. Members of our current squad have described their experiences to assist their team as 'the ultimate experience'.

But, with the season drawing to a close, we are recruiting another group of equally talented, motivated and committed Junior Gunners to continue their good work and be a part of the best squad in the Premier League!

If you think you have what it takes and are a Junior Gunner who will be aged between 12 and 16 next season, then we want to meet you at our trials, which will be taking place on Monday, May 6 at the Hale End youth academy in Walthamstow. These trials are not about playing football, however you’ll need to be able to throw and catch a ball and be able to read the game and react quickly.

If you wish to apply for the chance to be part of next season’s ball squad, please complete the form below together with 20 words telling us why you want to part of the team.

Please note you must be available to attend every fixture held at Emirates Stadium in the 2013/14 season. This includes all first-team fixtures as well as under-21 games, NextGen fixtures and Ladies matches held at stadium.

The deadline for receiving applications is 9am on Wednesday, April 24. Please note that all emails will be sent to the email address provided in the below form.

What are you waiting for?! The team needs you!
