Arsenal Matchday Experience

Arsenal Soccer Schools were welcomed at the Emirates Stadium home of Arsenal FC for the Premier League fixture Arsenal v Newcastle.

The Soccer Schools children who took part in the Matchday Experience became Junior Gunner members, and also got a behind the scenes look at the Arsenal 1st team arriving to the game.

The children were greeted by Gunnersaurus at the players entrance at the heart of the stadium where they waited for the teams. Newcastle arrived first including stars Cheick Tiote, Papiss Cisse, & Debmba Ba. There was also an extra surprise as Gunner Legend Thierry Henry arrived to watch the game before the Arsenal coach pulled up.

The full line up of Arsenal's stars made their way through the entrance, down the tunnel, and into the changing room. After the special chance to see the players arrive the children got to watch the game.

Arsenal ran out 7-3 winners in a classic fast paced match with forward Theo Walcott stealing the man of the match award and keeping the match ball too.

Director of Arsenal Soccer Schools in Buckinghamshire, Ben Roberts said;
'It was a great experience for not only the children but us coaches as well. The children enjoyed the chance to see their hero's up close and the day was topped by a magical match with Arsenal winning 7-3.'
