As if the thought of leading out The Bees in front of more than 40,000 fans wasn't enough, Owen, our mascot tomorrow night, was in for another shock this afternoon as Ollie Watkins turned up to deliver his match tickets and kit for the game.
After drawing The Gunners in the Carabao Cup Third Round, we launched a competition exclusively for Junior Season Ticket Holders and Club Members to find a young fan to lead the team out at The Emirates. From all those young Bees who were entered, Owen was our lucky winner.
The prize included four tickets to the game, a replica away kit, and, of course, the opportunity to meet the players and take to the pitch at The Emirates with the two teams on Wednesday night. Ollie Watkins, Owen's favourite player, was on hand this afternoon to make the experience even more memorable by visiting our young mascot's house to kit him out for the big night tomorrow.
In the crowd tomorrow will be more than 8,500 Brentford fans as Dean Smith's side look to make the Last 16 of the Carabao Cup for the first time in eight years.
The competition to find an Arsenal Mascot was open to all our Junior Season Ticket Holders and Club Members. If you want to be in the running for more money can't experiences over the course of the season then click to find out more about becoming a Season Ticket Holder or Member.
