People’s stories about Arsenal FC are wanted for an exhibition to celebrate 100 years since the club moved north of the river.

The Gunners, who used to be based in Woolwich, came to Highbury in 1913 and Islington Museum, in St John Street, Finsbury, want to collect tales about the club for an anniversary showcase.

Alex Smith, heritage manager at the museum, said: “We want people’s memories of Arsenal and living near the ground and so on. But please no stories about the games themselves.”
