Seven-year-old Ben Teviotdale from Arbroath won the chance to play on Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium pitch on May 4.

Just moments after the Gunners’ final home match of the season, a 1-0 victory over West Brom, had ended the young fan hopped on to the pitch.

Ben was one of 30 members of the club’s young supporter scheme, the Junior Gunners, to win tickets to the match and the chance to play on the hallowed turf.

With Arsenal’s star names still on the pitch, completing a lap of honour for the supporters, the 30 Junior Gunners enjoyed a half hour football session.
