A 95 mile mix up, all for nothing

Arsenal Under-18s had to cancel their game after they drove to the wrong game.

Jack Wilshere’s young Gunners were due to play against Brighton and Hove Albion but rather than arrive in West Sussex, their team bus instead went to Bournemouth.

The North London club were due to kick off at 12pm before pushing the game back to 12:30pm in the hope of arriving in Bournemouth on time.

However, despite their best efforts, Wilshere and co will instead travel back with egg on their face after it was decided that the 95 mile trip from Brighton to Bournemouth wouldn’t be completed in time.

No details on when the game will be replayed have been reported so far.

As for the first team, the Gunners travel to the north east to play Newcastle United as they look to go top of the Premier League.

Mikel Arteta’s side will be aiming to return to winning ways after a 3-1 defeat against West Ham United in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.
