Welcome to our new ball squad

Like every season, we have a new ball squad which is formed of 20 Junior Gunners who will support the team at every matchday at Emirates Stadium. They tested out their new roles during Emirates Cup earlier this summer.

The 20 JGs went through a series of tests during the ball squad trials in March this year, and were selected to represent Arsenal throughout the 2015/16 season. They will be responsible for keeping the matches flowing by being on their toes ready to get the ball back onto the field of play.

From their pitch-side seats they play a key part at every home match to make sure that not a minute is wasted to keep the game flowing and help the team keep the pressure on the opposition.

We change the squad before each season to give as many Young Guns as possible the chance to play their part. So if you want the chance to be involved next season keep your eyes peeled here for when we give you the chance to register for next year’s trials.

Early in 2016, we’ll let all you Young Guns know how to become a member of the Ball Squad so stay tuned to your newsletters.
