Arsenal's pre-season Members' Day concluded with a series of Q&A sessions with the first-team squad in Emirates Stadium's Club Level.

Wojciech Szczesny, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Tomas Rosicky, Lukasz Fabianski and Damian Martinez were in Dial Square to face the fans and take part in two challenges - the buzzwire and batak.

Szczesny set a high standard with the buzzwire and also stormed to victory in the batak - a machine that tests reflexes and is used in goalkeeper training.

Martinez entertained supporters with an Argentinian song while Oxlade-Chamberlain revealed his superstitions. "I put my left shinpad on first," explained the Ox. "I don't know why, I don't use my left foot!"

Meanwhile Mikel Arteta, Lukas Podolski, Aaron Ramsey, Per Mertesacker and Gedion Zelalem joined forces at Woolwich.

The highlight was a table tennis tournament which pitted the likes of Arteta and Ramsey against supporters.

In the press conference room, Theo Walcott was treated to a magic trick by Arsenal fan Jay, while Kieran Gibbs, Serge Gnabry and Ryo Miyaichi were also there to answer questions from fans.

Gibbs was asked to name the three toughest players in the squad and he nominated Laurent Koscielny, Abou Diaby and Bacary Sagna. Having omitted Olivier Giroud "because he's a bit fancy!", Giroud entered the room and suggested a boxing match!

A fourth Q&A took place in Royal Oak with Sagna, Carl Jenkinson, Jack Wilshere, Thomas Vermaelen and Chuba Akpom in attendance.
