Junior Gunners - Camping on the pitch 2014

The Junior Gunners’ 30th anniversary season came to a close in style on Friday night, with 400 young members sleeping out at Emirates Stadium.

Camping on the Pitch 2014 began with a football session on the pitch, run by the Club’s Arsenal Soccer School coaches.

The lucky youngsters then had the chance to get pictures taken with the FA Cup, which was on standby for the occasion, before having dinner in the exclusive Club Level area at the Emirates.

A host of fun activities followed, with the boys and girls able to try their hand at urban football challenges, table tennis, badminton, arcade games and arts and crafts.

The JGs then bedded down for the night in tents on the Emirates turf, bringing the action packed day to a close.

The participants, all aged 7-12, won the chance to attend from entering a members-only competition on the Junior Gunner site.
