Archant

Arsenal and England players Jordan Nobbs and Leah Williamson shocked two young Gunners fans with a special home visit recently.

The duo dropped in on the unsuspecting pair as part of the SSE Women’s FA Cup campaign – Make Dreams Goals – which encourages children aged seven to 15 to share their dreams.

Fans Hollie, whose bedroom is a shrine to Arsenal, and brother James submitted a dream of one day playing with their favourite Arsenal stars and received a knock at the door after school one day.

Nobbs and Williamson were standing there on the front step to make their dream come true and the Lionesses took part in a very special back garden kickabout with the young footballers, including a very competitive penalty shoot-out and some practice goal celebrations.

Youngsters can still enter by tweeting their dream with hashtag #MakeDreamsGoals to @SSEWomensFACup, by writing it on a postcard and dropping it at Wembley Stadium in postboxes in the Learning Zone or via Wembley Tours, or by posting it to SSE Women’s FA Cup Dream Team, Wembley Stadium, London, SW1P 9EQ.

The deadline to enter is April 20 and winners will be invited to the SSE Women’s FA Cup final at Wembley on May 5.

Kids go free to this year’s final, with adult tickets costing £15.

Arsenal Women are set to play Everton in one of the semi-finals on April 15.
