The Gunners on the Road trailer is back - and this year our first stop was Highbury Fields, just a stone's throw away from Emirates Stadium.

To celebrate spending 100 years in Islington, we wanted to kick off this year’s summer tour right here in north London - with 400 young Arsenal fans visiting the trailer and experiencing a virtual tour of the Arsenal Training Centre as well as Emirates Stadium.

The youngsters got the chance to sample some of the players' training methods and tested their reaction speeds against one another on the two-player batak wall, a hi-tech gym machine used by the team to improve reflexes. They also took part in a penalty shootout and won some great prizes.

The Gunners on the Road trailer will be visiting several locations in the UK this summer. Check back here in a few days to find out all the details!
