Three-year-old Luke Trawley of London Colney and Charlie Agalliu, two, from St Albans, were among 150 young footie fans at the event.

They had the chance to meet Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla, who attended the event with his young children, and to get stuck into activities based on the beautiful game.

Toddlers enjoyed mini games of footie and a bouncy castle – football themed of course.

Unfortunately club captain Thomas Vermaelen was unavailable but a cut-out cardboard figure of the star to pose alongside for photos was made available instead.
