sbo ninja Arsenal may have been accused of showing opposition forwards a bit too much hospitality on the pitch - but no-one can accuse the club of being anything other than welcoming off-the-pitch.

The North London giants hosted 150 lucky young supporters from the club's long-running Junior Gunners membership scheme on Saturday.

The excited youngsters were picked at random to enjoy a Christmas party that they won’t ever forget - as they were given the rare chance to train with the Arsenal first team.

The thrilled kids made a beeline for Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil while in-form Jack Wilshere who has served the club since he was nine played goalkeeper for the day as the youngsters fired shots at him.

Record signing Alexandre Lacazette and Laurent Koscileny also entertained the wide-eyed junior visitors.sbo ninja
