A YOUNG Arsenal fan from St Albans enjoyed a dream day out when he went to see his favourite club play for the first time.

Seven-year-old Daniel Wright, of Chalkdell Fields, won two tickets to see Arsenal play at the Emirates Stadium when he entered a competition in the Herts Advertiser. His father Graham, who went with his son, is also a football fanatic and said they both had a wonderful time.

Father and son came back from holiday in Cornwall a day early for the Emirates Cup matches in which Real Madrid played Hamburg, and Arsenal played Juventus. Arsenal lost 1-0, but Graham said it did not spoil the fun for Daniel.

Daniel, who goes to Wheatfields JMI School and plays football for Harvesters FC in Smallford, has always wanted to watch his heroes play at the Emirates Stadium.

Graham said it was a memorable trip for his son. He added: "Daniel has been bitten by the bug, and with the football season just starting, he is now asking to go again.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
