Dear Junior Gunners,
First and foremost, everyone at Arsenal Football Club hopes that you and your families are keeping safe and well. This is a worrying time, and while we all miss the excitement of the game we love, our priority at the moment has to be health and wellbeing as we face one of the most significant global public health emergencies in recent times.
Do stay safe and follow official advice to protect yourself and those around you.
You will have seen Thursday's announcement that the 2019/20 season will be extended indefinitely, and that the professional game is further postponed in England until at least April 30, 2020. We are fully supportive of this decision which was endorsed at Thursday morning’s Premier League shareholder meeting.
Of course, we all want to be back playing football as soon as we possibly can, but only when it is safe to be doing so.
We have also taken the decision to cancel our Easter party due to take place at Emirates Stadium on Tuesday 7th April . We will also be postponing our Ball Squad Trials to a later date. We understand this will be disappointing to many of you, but the health and safety of our Junior Gunners is our priority.
Our Team JGs and Young Guns e-newsletters will now be sent on a monthly basis, starting from Thursday 2nd April. As a member, you’ll still get access to the latest news and competitions, and all paid members will be receiving something fun in the post from us soon.

Thank you for your understanding at this time.
