Academy duo cheer on schools tournament

Academy players Alex Crean and Charlie Gilmour were on hand to cheer on youngsters taking part in the Premier League Schools Tournament at Market Road on Tuesday.

A total of 32 local schools took part in the competition, with Ashmont Primary School the winners.
 
Ashmont will now represent Arsenal in the national finals of the competition at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge home in May. 

Arsenal in the Community coach James Warnock said: "It's been brilliant to get some 250 youngsters from the local area together for a day of fun and football. The chance to win a place in the finals at May was obviously a big draw for all of our kids. The chance to meet Alex and Charlie from our Academy made for an even better day."
 
Arsenal in the Community works with 75 primary schools in north London, delivering a range of education and sports activities.
