A young football fan had the honour of leading out his favourite team as mascot for a Premier League match.

Frank Pugh, from Hornsey, led out his heroes from the Arsenal football team at their match against Aston Villa on Saturday.

The eight-year-old young gunner was picked out of more than 20,000 other fans to be the mascot for the game which saw him lining up with Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta for the match.

The 30-year-old midfielder said: “It was great to meet Frank before our game on Saturday. I know how much I’d have loved to do something like that when I was a kid and I just hope he had a memorable day.”
