The Junior Gunners Christmas party is being arranged with the help of sponsors EA Sports and BT Yahoo Broadband, and anyone who joins the membership club before Friday 21st November 2003 will be in with the chance of attending the bash at Highbury, along with the whole first team.

Junior Gunners is a membership club for Arsenal fans under 16 years of age, and offers members loads of exciting events like the fabulous Christmas party. JGs also get the chance to take part in the official team photo at the start of the season, are the only supporters who can be a mascot at a home or away match1 and they can also purchase reduced price tickets for first team matches at Highbury.

Sue Campbell, Junior Gunners manager said: "The Christmas party is just one of the fantastic events organised for our Junior Gunners, and gives the kids a great chance to meet the players. The fun goes on throughout the season, so joining up now could not only give some lucky young Arsenal fans an early Christmas present but also guaranteed fun for the rest of the season!"

Patrick Vieira says: "The young supporters that come along to the Christmas party have a great time, with all of the games and competitions arranged. All of us players are there as well so join up now and you could be there too!"

Members receive a fantastic souvenir pack and a great colour photograph of our FA Cup winners, membership costs just £14 or £18 for supporters living overseas3. For an application form call the Junior Gunners office on 020 7704 4160 or you can download one from the official Club website.
