One hundred and fifty 'Welcome to our World' Junior Gunners were selected to attend Gunner's Play Day on Friday, October 4, after applying through the JG website.

The Junior Gunners team opened up the Highbury Suite and divided it into different-themed areas.

The youngsters experienced three hours of fun with loads of different soft-play activities as well as a chance to sing and dance.

To celebrate the Junior Gunners scheme turning 30 years old this season, there was also a birthday-themed area where the young 'Welcome to our World' members decorated cupcakes, ate treats and got to fill out a birthday banner with their creations.

The kids were also given the opportunity to play in the football zone, where they were looked after by coaches from Arsenal in the Community.

And the lucky JGs were even treated to a surprise visit from Spanish star, Santi Cazorla.

All pictures from the event will be available soon on Arsenal Pictures.

We'll inform all event attendees when the pictures are ready to be downloaded.
