Today sees the launch of the first of our two-part documentary Back Home: Jack Wilshere’s First Season, focusing on our under-18s boss’ transition from player to manager.
Our cameras followed the former Hale End product as he took his first steps into coaching our academy side, and tracked their FA Youth Cup campaign, as they embarked on a dramatic run right from their opening match through to the final in front of a large crowd at Emirates Stadium.
And our supporters can go right into the heart of the setup and hear Jack’s team talks before, during and after games, as well as hear from the man himself about how he fared and the highs and lows of the job, and some of the youngsters developing under the former England international.
Part one sees Jack and his team at the start of their Youth Cup adventure, as they navigate their way past Millwall and Newcastle United before heading into a crunch game against Watford in the fifth round which proved to be a rollercoaster of emotions for Jack.
Watch it all by pressing play on the video above.
