Football fan has 'brilliant' time as Arsenal mascot at Emirates Stadium
An eight-year-old Arsenal fan was chosen to run out onto the pitch with his heroes ahead of the Gunners' 2-0 win against Liverpool on Saturday.
Luca Jason, of Chessington Avenue, Finchley, was chosen at random from more than 30,000 members of Arsenal’s junior supporters' club, the Junior Gunners, to walk the team onto the pitch before kick-off at the Emirates Stadium.
Luca said: “It was brilliant to have been chosen to be the mascot and to walk the team out onto the pitch.
“I got to meet loads of players, and we won the game so the whole experience was great.”
He also got to meet two of the club’s German stars, Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker.
The club’s new signing, Ozil, said: “It was great to meet Luca ahead of our game with Liverpool. He was such a very passionate young supporter and it was very good to see.”
