For the League Cup match against Doncaster, a group of JGs were invited to be part of the Club’s matchday team and got unique access behind-the-scenes at the Emirates.
The Junior Gunners entered a competition telling us all about what they want to be when they grow up and how they managed under pressure.
Whilst Aidan (9) the Kit Manager and David (10) the Groundskeeper ensured that the dressing room and pitch were ready for the team’s arrival, Directors Host Ellie (13) greeted guests like Pat Rice and David O’Leary.
Our Matchday Experience Manager Danny (9) and Matchday Experience Director Lana (9) ensured that all was on schedule and in order, whilst Thomas (13) in Stadium Control helped to guide fans to their seats.
During the match, our Camera Person Abi (16), Matchday Reporter Dylan (11), Photographer Joe (16) and Social Media Manager Samiyah (13) ensured that all the action was covered for all the Arsenal channels.
Theo (11) was our Matchday Show Director for the day, helping the team producing content for the jumbotron.
JG Boris (13) however was discovered on You Tube and was matched up with Nigel Mitchell to take on the matchday host role. Together they presented the team, entertained the crowd and of course interviewed both the mascots and Arsenal Legend and 100 Club member Tony Woodcock.
