PICTURE: From Mascot to Arsenal Player

Nico Yennaris joined Arsenal when he was just 7-years-old, having been born just five miles from Highbury. He was a mascot for the club in their Premier League fixture against Coventry that year. Sylvain Wiltord and Paolo Vernazza scored their first goals for the club in a 2-1 win.

Twelve years later, now aged 19, Yennaris made his sixth appearance for the first team in Arsenal’s 6-1 thrashing over Coventry yesterday in the League Cup.
