Match Report: Arsenal Gaygooners vs. London Everton Supporters Club @ESCLA1976 @GayGooners @ArsenalForEveryone @speedmick @overyourhead

Last Sunday, in the latest great example of Arsenal for Everyone in action, saw a seven-a-side team of the Arsenal Gaygooners take on a team from London Everton Supporters Club at the Arsenal Hub. There was a fierce battle in what turned out to be a 13 goal thriller seeing the LESC win 11 - 2. Keen for revenge, a rematch was hastily agreed for next season. It was fun afternoon demonstrating clearly, if it needs to be said; how football brings people together.

Jonathan Green of Gaygooners says, "Great to meet the boys in blue today. A thrilling match, they played high pressing game and they stayed the distance. We woz robbed though! We made some friends today - Arsenal for Everyone in action."

Speedo Mick of LESC who was playing in his blue speedos to raise awareness of cancer said, "A pleasure to meet you all, a cracking bunch of lads."

"Same time next year lads!"

The club launched the Arsenal for Everyone initiative back in 2008 as a celebration of the diversity of the Arsenal family. Through a number of initiatives undertaken in the community, inside Emirates Stadium and throughout the club, Arsenal endeavours to ensure that everyone associated with the club feels an equal sense of belonging.
