We enjoyed an exciting Members’ Day 2015 this past Tuesday, with a huge number of fans turning out to see the team train. One of the highlights of the afternoon was the crossbar challenge, and there was a somewhat surprising winner.
There wasn’t a huge amount of structure to the competition, with a number of players taking multiple attempts. Jack Wilshere and Chuba Akpom both smashed the crossbar with their efforts, but it was Arsene Wenger who caught the eye.
The manager dropped a ball and hit it first time, his volley flying goalwards and crashing into the crossbar. Despite the impressive feat, the Frenchman remained coolness personified.

Wenger has in the past seen pulling off the occasional trick and flick, and still looks incredibly fit despite his advancing years. Maybe the Arsenal boss could sub himself on this season if we get too many injuries?

It was another fantastic Members’ Day, and is another step in our superb pre-season. The squad looks in confident mood ahead of the new season, with Chelsea and the Community Shield our last stop before the Premier League opener.
The 2015/16 season is already shaping up to be a good one, so hopefully it doesn’t disappoint.
