The ball squad is always an integral part of each home matchday, helping to keep games flowing from their pitch-side seats. We’re now recruiting another group of talented, motivated and committed Junior Gunners to be part of the best squad in the Premier League, starting in August 2016!

If you are a Junior Gunner who will be in the Young Guns group and aged between 12 and 16 in Season 2016/17, then we want to meet you at our trials! The trials take place on Thursday, March 31 at the Hub, right next to Emirates Stadium! Timings will be confirmed in your invitations, however it will take place during the day.

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. Make sure that you have parental permission to apply. 

Please note you must be available to attend every fixture held at Emirates Stadium in Season 2016/17. This includes all first-team fixtures as well as under-21 games, Youth Cup fixtures and Ladies matches held at the stadium. Please note that after all night games, a parent/guardian will be required to pick the JG up at Emirates Stadium.  

The deadline for receiving applications is 11:59pm Wednesday, March 13. Please note that all emails will be sent to the email address provided in the below form.
