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.
