Two teenage football fans have been chosen to help their favourite team.

Oliver McGahon, 13, from Evelyn Road, Barnet, and Kayla Williams, 14, from Stamford Close, Potters Bar, will be part of the Arsenal Ballsquad for the 2014/15 season.

Oliver, a pupil at East Barnet School, and Kayla, who attends Kingsmead School in Enfield, are both members of the club's young supporter scheme the Junior Gunners. They attended trials back in April, when they were picked out of 150 12 to 16 year olds for the final squad.

The young fans will play a key role at every matchday at Emirates Stadium, fetching the ball from the sidelines, and throwing it back to the players in order to get games back underway.

They enjoyed their first taste of the role at Emirates Cup 2014 on the weekend of August 2 and 3.
