A seven-year-old had a day to remember when he played a football match against top players.

Joshua Newman, who lives in West Finchley, was one of 20 children who won the chance to play against the Arsenal FC team on the Emirates Stadium pitch. Arsenal mascot Gunnersaurus was in goal for the Gunners’ stars, with England and Arsenal ace Theo Walcott refereeing the game.

Joshua also had the chance to watch the Arsenal team train and to attend a Gunners’ Q&A session.
