James and George Penn, eight and seven, joined a group of fellow supporters for a behind-the-scenes tour of London Colney where they met England defender Kieran Gibbs and Spanish international Nacho Monreal.

The Junior Gunners were given a tour of the facility, before enjoying a Premier League footballer’s lunch in the players’s restaurant.

They brought the day to a close with training drills under the watchful eye of Arsenal’s coaches.

Defender Gibbs said: “It was great to meet James, George and the other youngsters during their tour of the training ground.

“When you’re here every day, you sometimes forget what a special place it is and it was great to see the group so excited to be getting a behind the scenes look at the setup.”
