James McDonald from Armagh in Northerm Ireland was Arsenal's mascot for the Premiership match against Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok Stadium on 3 December, 2005.

The 13-year-old met the Arsenal squad before the match and led the team out at Highbury before having his picture taken with Cesc Fabregas.

Unfortunately, Arsenal lost 2-0 in Lancashire but can count themselves a little unlucky with Thierry Henry twice hitting the frame of the Bolton goal.

In his spare time James enjoys football and snooker. His favourite players are Thierry Henry, Kolo Toure and Lauren.

"I have supported Arsenal since I was six years old," said James.
