Walthamstow youngster Anas Karoo fulfilled his dream of playing at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium after the club’s final home game of the season.

Through the club’s young supporters scheme, the Junior Gunners, Anas and 30 other young fans were given the opportunity to play on the pitch after watching Arsenal cruise to a 1-0 victory over West Brom on May 4.

While Arsenal’s current crop of stars completed their lap of honour after the game, Anas and the rest of the Junior Gunners celebrated the 30th anniversary of the scheme with a 30-minute football session on the hallowed turf.
