A lucky pair of teenager have been chosen by their boyhood club to be a ballboy for the season.

Christopher Christodoulou, of Henley Road, in Edmonton, and Alex Puliatti, 15, of Enfield, have joined Arsenal FC’s ballsquad for the 2014/15 season.

They enjoyed their first taste of the action at the Emirates Cup earlier this month and will now do the same job from now until May.

The pair form part of a 20 strong squad that were selected from trials back in April where they were put through their paces with a host of speed, throwing and catching drills.

A part of the club’s young support scheme, the Junior Gunners, the Arsenal fans will be sitting from the sidelines at every home match at the Emirates Stadium, collecting the ball when it goes out of play for their favourite stars.
