Arsenal stars donned their tuxedos for a charity ball that raised more than £300,000 for good causes.
Kieran Gibbs, Carl Jenkinson, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain got their glad rags on for the The Arsenal Foundation Ball on May 8.
The gala event at the Emirates stadium saw the Gunner’s manager Arsene Wenger address the guests before Jahmene Douglas from the X-Factor and The Voice’s Tyler James performed.
Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere bid £5,000 for a shirt signed by members of the famous ‘Invincibles’ squad and also picked up a replica 1971 goalkeeping jersey, signed by Bob Wilson.
Mr Wilson, a new ambassador for the Arsenal Foundation, said: “Having been involved with Arsenal for more than fifty years – first as a player, then coach and subsequently with my charity – it’s a huge honour to be chosen as an Ambassador for The Arsenal Foundation.“
