Ellie Badger from Hampshire was Arsenal's mascot for the Premiership match against Blackburn Rovers at Highbury on 26 November, 2005.

The 12-year-old met the Arsenal squad before the match and led the team out at Highbury before having his picture taken with Dennis Bergkamp.

Arsenal won 3-0 thanks to goals by Cesc Fabregas, Thierry Henry and Robin Van Persie.

In her spare time Ellie enjoys drama, running, swimming and of course football. Her favourite player is Thierry Henry.

Ellie is currently learning to play the violin and has ballet lessons and her long-term ambition is to run at the 2012 Olympic games.
