There’s being an Arsenal legend, and then there’s being on the Piebury Corner menu.
On Monday, Bob Wilson became the first Gunners goalkeeper to make it onto the Holloway Road pie shop’s “legends” menu.
His name has been tagged onto the deli’s Scotch pie, and a percentage of each sale will be donated to the Willow Foundation.
The charity was founded by Bob in 1999, after his daughter, Anna, died of cancer aged 31.
Paul Campbell, co-owner of the shop, said: “We don’t sell a lot of Scotch pies but I think we will from now on. There’s been a massive response to it, both from the pie side and charity side. It feels good, raising awareness of the Willow Foundation.

“Bob had only been inducted into the National Football Museum’s hall of fame in Manchester the day before. My mate Nick asked him what was the greatest honour: the hall of fame or being on the Piebury legends menu? He said it’s debatable!”
