Leatherhead junior Gunner Oliver Gray got to mix it with his heroes after being selected as the Arsenal mascot ahead of the FA Cup clash against Everton.

The nine-year-old was chosen at random from 30,000 young Arsenal fans to walk out onto the Emirates stadium pitch with the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The youngster said: “It was brilliant to have been chosen to be the mascot and to walk the team out onto the pitch, especially for a FA Cup match against Everton.

"I got to meet loads of players, it was really exciting.”

Oxlade-Chamberlain enjoyed meeting Oliver too. He said: “It was great to meet Oliver ahead of our game with Everton. He was really excited and such a passionate young supporter, it was good to see.”
