Max with Arsenal players

A young football fan from Barnt Green had the trip of a lifetime when he was chosen as Arsenal’s mascot for their match against West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates Stadium.

Eleven-year-old Max King, who attends Alvechurch Middle School and plays for Alvechurch-based football team Fairfield Villa, has been a member of the “Young Gunners” Arsenal fan club since the age of five.

Max was introduced to all the players (including his favourite, Theo Walcott) and had a full tour of the stadium before taking his front-row seat and cheering his team to a 1-0 win.
