Jordan Nobbs, Danielle Carter and Dominique Janssen from Arsenal Women have been busy celebrating their Continental Cup final trophy victory alongside fans with learning disabilities.

The talented trio - hailed for their displays in the 1-0 win against Manchester City – have shown their community-minded side by raising awareness of the excellent work the club does.

In the aftermath of victory the three took time to meet participants from an adult learning disabilities group, who supported the Gunners during the triumph which ended hopes of a City quadruple, at Wycombe’s Adams Park.

The Arsenal in the Community Instagram account posted a picture of the successful footballers with members of the delighted group.

An Arsenal spokesman said: “It was a day to remember for the club as a community, with another trophy for the Arsenal Women, as well as a day to remember for the adult learning disabilities group.”

Jordan Nobbs posting on her personal Instagram added: “#WeAreTheArsenal”.
