Exclusive: Wilshere Given Youth Cup Start


Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has been given a starting berth in tomorrow’s FA Youth Cup fourth round tie against Wolves, Gooner Talk understands.

The 17-year-old flamboyant star recently signed a professional contract with the club, and despite being promoted to the first team squad in August, Jack will now get his chance to shine in the competition which has turbo-started many young Gunners’ careers.

Coach Steve Bould’s starting line-up is as follows:

Eastmond – Bartley – Ayling – Cruise
Coquelin – Frimpong
Lansbury – Wilshere – E-Thomas

Subs: Mann (GK), Evina, Blackwood, Watt, Sunu

As usual, you can catch all the pre-match and post-match action over at our good friends Young Guns.

With thanks to Thomas from Arsenal Academy.
