JGs take on first team at Members' Day

Jack Wilshere

Twenty Junior Gunners took on Arsenal stars in a game of football at Emirates Stadium on Thursday as part of Members’ Day 2014.

Decked out in the club's new third kit, the lucky JGs took on a team that included Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere, with Gunnersaurus in goal!

The game was part of an action packed Members’ Day at the Emirates and the youngsters did themselves proud, running out 3-2 winners.

First up was an open training session, with the thousands of supporters in attendance able to get a first-hand look at Arsene Wenger’s preparations for the season ahead.

After training, supporters put their questions to players in a Q&A session and a group of JGs got stuck into a drawing competition with Gunners stopper Wojciech Szczesny.

Fans were also able to enjoy a range of football challenges, testing out their shooting skills. 

Members’ Day is the first of many exclusive member events taking place during the 2014/15 season. Visit for further information.
