»An Upminster teenager was given the VIP treatment by Arsenal last month after winning a competition.
Holly Minton, 16, watched the Gunners’ 6-1 victory over Coventry City in the league cup from an exclusive box, and was paid a surprise visit by the club mascot Gunnersaurus and Poland and Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny.
The prize was part of the club’s young membership scheme Junior Gunners.
Holly, who has been a Junior Gunner since she was two days old, said: “There’s always lots of amazing opportunities and competitions I can enter.
“I was lucky enough to win a competition in September. I was to go to the Emirates Stadium to watch the match in an exclusive box with my mum.
“The score at the end was 6-1 Arsenal, which made my night even better!”
