Following the success and high demand for the behind-the-scenes visit in February, 50 lucky Junior Gunners were chosen to participate in the JG Academy at London Colney.

The Junior Gunners were given a tour around the training ground, which included a look at the pitches, changing rooms, gym and the famous boots room!

The lucky JGS were treated to a coaching session from Arsenal Soccer School Coaches before learning about life as footballer.

During lunch the Junior Gunners learnt about life at Colney, including how Arsenal planted 28,500 trees due to the strong winds. As a surprise, Arsenal and England captain Faye White, stopped by to answer questions from eager JGs.

"I think that balance of touring the site to football was perfect and the quality of the activities was really good," said Junior Gunner Malik Norgan. "I now have a much greater understanding of Arsenal FC and how it works. I had a really great day."

Make sure you can also attend these amazing events by joining Junior Gunners today and be a part of something special!
