Marcus Husted Winther from Epsom was Arsenal's mascot for the Premiership match against Birmingham City at Highbury on 2 October, 2005.

The seven-year-old met the Arsenal squad before the match and led the team out at Highbury before having his picture taken with Sol Campbell.

Arsenal won 1-0 thanks to a long-range goal by Robin Van Persie

In his spare time Marcus enjoys cricket and of course - football. His favourite players are Thierry Henry and Robert Pires.

"I think Arsenal is a fantastic team and I hope to play for them one day," said  Marcus
