Arsenal Ladies were given a special reception at Islington Town Hall on Monday afternoon to celebrate their FA Women's Cup success last month.

The Gunners secured the trophy for the 13th time with a 2-0 victory over Everton on June 1, to complete the club's first FA Cup/FA Women's Cup double since 1998.

John Bayer's side were met at the Town Hall by the Mayor of Islington, local MP Jeremy Corbyn, Islington Council representatives and a group of girls from Highbury Fields School.

A drinks reception was followed by speeches from the Mayor, the Leader of the Council and Arsenal captain Kelly Smith.
