GARY CAMPBELL (midfield)

Gary was born in Belfast, but he‘s spent most of his life in Grimsby. He came for trials at Highbury when 14, and made speedy progress last season, when he broke into the reserve team. Regular youth team watchers reckon Gary models his style on Graham Rix. Gary is a member of the Northern Ireland youth squad.

LEE CHAPMAN (forward)

from Lincoln, and joined the Gunners from Stoke just before the start of last season. A tribunal fixed Lee's value after the clubs couldn't agree a fee. Lee scored 17 goals two seasons running for Stoke -— including many spectacular headers. It took him a while to settle down at Highbury —- and just when he seemed to be settling in he had to go into hospital for a cartilage operation after a training injury. Scored five goals last season. Arsenal record: 14 appearances, 10 substitutes. 5 goals. Lee comes

PAUL DAVIS (midfield)

Paul decided to sign a new contract at Highbury in the close season, after establishing himself in the team for two seasons. Paul made his debut at Tottenham at Easter, 1980. He joined Arsenal from

school, after impressing for the South London schoolboy team, and he's already won England U-21 honours. Paul comes

from Stockwell. Arsenal record: 106 appearances, 8 substitutes, 13 goals.

PAUL GORMAN (midfield) Paul has been a reserve stalwart for the past three seasons. He comes from Dublin, and he's won Ireland youth honours. Paul broke into the first team briefly in the 1981/2 season, when he made his debut at Manchester City, and hit the post in a 0-0 draw. He made three further first team appearances that season. He couldn't regain a first team place last season, and had to be content with 37 Football Combination appearances. Arsenal record: 4 appearances.

MARTIN HAYES (forward)

Martin was spotted when he was 14, playing for Waltham Forest boys. He's equally at home in the centre, or on the wing. Londoner Martin made great strides last season in his first year as an apprentice. He made several reserve appearances, and was substitute for the first team in the last game of the season at Aston Villa. Martin has been invited to join the England U-17 squad for the coming season.


Season 83/84 COLIN HILL (centre back) Colin is 19, and another Arsenal youth product. He comes from Hillingdon in west London. He joined Arsenal as a forward, and banged in the goals as a junior. But a chance conversion to centre back in a youth game against Tottenham proved the turning point in Colin's career. He formed a formidable centre back partnership with Danny O'Shea in the reserves, and made his first team debut at Norwich in April, 1983, when Arsenal experimented with three central defenders. Arsenal record: 7 appearances.

TONY ISAACS (midfield)

-

Tony is in his second year with the Gunners, but this will be his first year in full time football. He's joining us on a government youth opportunities scheme which will give him the chance to prove himself. Tony spent a spell at Chelsea before he came to Highbury. He comes from Brixton, and made his name with the Wandsworth and London schoolboy sides.


ARSENAL PAT JENNINGS (goalkeeper)

Just about everything that can be said about the remarkable Pat Jennings already has been. Pat has played in the Football League for over 20 seasons, and he's still going strong at 38! It took Tottenham fans years to get over the shock when Terry Neill bought him from Spurs for £45,000 just before the start of the 1977/78 season. Probably the most experienced international ‘keeper in the world now Dino Zoff has retired — and he's edging up towards 100 Northern Ireland caps. Born Newry, County Down. Arsenal record: 266 appearances. Northern Ireland caps: 99.

JOHN KAY (right backlmidfield)

John comes from the north east and signed for Arsenal straight from school. He burst into the reserve side as a skilful midfield player, whose runs earned him the nickname ‘Dribble’. Reserve boss Terry Burton converted John to right back at the start of last season — and he was soon challenging for a first team spot. John made his debut, at West Bromwich in February 1983. Arsenal record: 7 appearances.

MARTIN KEOWN (defender)

Martin was born in Oxford, and made his name with Oxford boys. He was invited for trials at Highbury when he was 14. ln those days, Martin was a centre forward, but he's made an effective conversion to centre half. Broke into the reserves last season, and he's also a member of the England U-17 squad.

TERRY LEE (forward)

Terry is a youngster who broke into the reserve side at the start of last season and stayed throughout the year. Terry made his name with South London boys, and joined the Gunners from school. He scored nine reserve goals last season, and travelled with the first team on the close season tour of Indonesia. Terry is the younger brother of the former Millwall forward Trevor Lee.

Charlie's impact on Scottish football in two full seasons was little short of incredible. He hammered 52 goals for Celtic last

season, before Arsenal pipped Liverpool and Manchester United, and signed him in June. Charlie cut short training to be a motor mechanic, to sign for Celtic in 1979. He scored on his Scotland debut against Switzerland in April. Charlie also played against Northern Ireland and England and went on Scotland's end-of-season tour to Canada. Charlie is 21, and comes from Glasgow. Scotland caps: 3.

PETER NICHOLAS (midfield)

Last season ended on a high note for Peter after a terrible start. He had to fight his way back after a cartilage operation. He got back in the side against Tottenham at Christmas, and missed only one more game all season. And to cap his recovery, he was made captain of the Welsh international team too. Peter, who comes from Newport, began his career at Crystal Palace. He joined Arsenal in March 1981. Arsenal record: 77 appearances, 3 substitutes, 3 goals.

He joined the Gunners as an apprentice in 1973 — and made his debut at Burnley as a 17 year-old in August 1975. He's widely regarded as one of Europe's top centre halves.

Graham comes from Doncaster and he's yet another player who came up through the Arsenal youth ranks. Graham scored on his debut against Leicester in April 1977 (Arsenal won 3-0) and soon struck up a brilliant understanding with Liam Brady. In the past two seasons, Graham has added goal power to his creative skills, and he's hit double figures each year. Graham has yet to make himself a fixture in the England team, but he's already won 16 caps. Arsenal record: 317 appearances, 6 substitutes, 36 goals.

STEWART ROBSON (midfield/centre back/right back) Versatile Stewart made a meteoric rise into the first te'am at just 17, when he played right back in the 2-1 win at West Ham in December 1981. The former England youth captain has filled in for so many positions, no-one's quite sure which is his best. Stewart joined Arsenal after he left Brentwood Public School (The public school background led to John Hollins christening him ‘Old Chap’). Stewart, otherwise known as ’Robbo' comes from Essex.

Season 83/84 CHRIS WHYTE (centre back)

Chris is one of Arsenal's most local products. He grew up in Highbury, and joined the Gunners from Highbury Grove school. Chris — nicknamed Huggy Bear after the Starsky and Hutch character — made his first team debut as a UEFA Cup sub against Panathinaikos in September 1981.

He made his league debut in the 1-0 win over Manchester City the following month. Chris made the spot his own after Willie Young left for Nottingham Forest. He's also played for the England U-21 team. Arsenal record: 85 appearances, 1 substitute, 5 goals.

RHYS WILMOT (goalkeeper)

Rhys has been one of the unluckiest players at Highbury, because his path has been blocked by George Wood and the great Pat Jennings. Because Rhys is too old to play in the South East Counties League, he's often gone without a game while one of the experienced ‘keepers has played in the reserves. Rhys's biggest moment for the Gunners was when he starred in the Arsenal team that lifted the Daily Express five-a-side

trophy last November. He spent a month on loan to Hereford the end of last season. Rhys comes from Chepstow, and he's a Wales U-21 international.

Arsenal record: 52 appearances, 21 goals. England caps: 28

JONATHAN WOODS (forward)

Jonathan has joined the Gunners on a government youth opportunities scheme. He comes from Ebbw Vale in Gwent, and showed his potential with regular goalscoring appearances for the Welsh schoolboys team. He's been coming to Arsenal since he was 14, and signed schoolboy forms for us last season.

ARSENAL TERRY NEILL REVIEW OF THE SEASON By our own high standards, last season was disappointing. For some clubs tenth in the First Division and a place in two cup semi-finals would have been a good season. But we're not any club, we're Arsenal. Two semi-finals may be good enough for a lot of clubs, but we are expected to win trophies. We all know how disappointing last season was for our supporters. believe we've shown how determined we are to put things right by winning the race to sign Charlie Nicholas. We trust he will have a long and successful career at Highbury. Our problem throughout last season was inconsistency. There were times when we played football to match the best. Anyone who saw us beat West Bromwich,Tottenham and Luton or win at Coventry will know what we could do. The trouble was we didn't produce that form often enough. The gap between our best and our worst is far too great. We have to be more consistent. That's something we're determined to put right this year. Our pre-season work has been carefully planned to iron out the problem. We're working very hard — andvve hope we've learned our lessons. It was pleasing to see Tony Woodcock finish top scorer in his first season back in England. But we bought him because he's a proven goalscorer . . and we'll be expecting more from him I

this season. We want him to form a productive partnership with Charlie Nicholas. Our injury crisis at the end of last season gave us the chance to look at some of our younger players, and that proved a big bonus. Young players like Colin Hill, John Kay and Brian McDermott all had a run — and Danny O'Shea had received his chance earlier in the season. lt's a source of strength in the club, that the reserves keep on turning out youngsters like them. Last season is over and done with. We aim to make certain we do a lot better this time.

i Some so-called lightweight videos are

not so lightweight. About as lightweight as a bag otcement in tact. But not]\/Cs portable video recorder. lt’s very, very light just over 5 pounds. it's very, very small about 7x3 x8 inches. All in all it's made for a normal human being to carry round. ]\/C can do this because the HR-C3

uses VHS (C) cassettes. They’re a third of the size of normal cassettes. But can be

played back on a standard VHS video recorder using an adaptor. This little beauty also comes with highspeed shuttle search, automatic backspace editing and an audio dubbing capacity. lt's even got remote control. The camera that comes with this video

is equally remarkable.The GZ S3 is

amazingly light and compact, a mere Z% pounds in fact. lt also has a low-light recording capacity, which means you can shoot in lighting as low as 3O lux. This camera can clip neatly into the SF-PZU Shoulder-frame next to the video uni[_ A Slick design like this provides 3 one-piece recording assembly for on the

shoulder operation. The whole thing can then be carried anywhere because the HRC3 has its own lightweight rechargeable Ni-Cad battery pack.Or you can use the optional mains or car battery adaptors. Like every video product in]\/C's wide range, it‘s all so simple that even a child can use it. And a child can carry it too.

Season 83/84 Young forward Terry Lee started with flurry of goals. His scoring run dropped off towards the end of the season, in the welter of matches. We finished sixth in the Football Combination after a disappointing start. Obviously we'd like to have finished higher, and won the title — but the important thing is that the reserve team continues to produce young players who can step into the first team. The lack of experience was apparent early in the season when a dreadful injury run forced us to fill the team with apprentices. Results improved rapidly when players like Raphael Meade and Peter Nicholas started comebacks in the reserves, and added the experience we needed. We put together a great run either side of Christmas, till we hit a run of postponed matches, and hardly played for a month. At the end of the season, we were faced with two and three matches a week. Because of the first team's injury problems, we again had to call on apprentice players. Probably the most successful was Martin Hayes, who earned himself a substitute's place for the final league game at Aston Villa, though he didn't come on. Our best result — a 2-1 win over Tottenham at Highbury. And Spurs included 11 players with first team experience! a

Terry Burton

I S

I

Last season was a topsy-turvy one for the reserves, but it was pleasing because of the number of players who came through the reserve ranks to earn a taste of first team football. John Kay, Colin Hill, Danny O’Shea all broke into the first team for the first time. Raphael Meade fought his way briefly into the first team, and Brian McDermott came back from a loan spell at Fulham to hold a spot at the end of the season. John Kay made an impressive switch from midfield to right back, where he played seven first team games. If he maintains his form, he should challenge hard for a place this season. Danny O’Shea made his first team debut at full back, though he played centre back in the reserves. He held his place for nine games, but a succession of niggling injuries temporarily slowed his progress. Colin Hill came in at Norwich in April and stayed till the end of the season. He should challenge again for a first team place too. Last season's regular midfielders David Cork and Paul Gorman were also knocking on the door at the end of the season. 51

many apprentices were pressed into the reserves, and often the youth team was packed with schoolboys. That was reflected in the results. But once the boys had gained experience â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and we were able to field a settled team â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we started winning. We gave winners Norwich a hard time in the F.A. Youth Cup, and were unlucky not to beat Q.P.R. in the Southern Junior Floodlit Cup quarter-final. We saved one of our best South East Counties displays for the last game of the season, when we comfortably beat Millwall 3-0. One of the strong points of the team was the central defence, where Martin Keown, and schoolboy Tony Adams formed an impressive barrier. Both have already played in the reserve team. So has Gus Caesar, who performed capably at centre back or at full back. ln midfield, Gary Campbell played some promising matches, and had a taste of reserve action. Towards the end of the season, Tony lsaacs won a regular spot, and

struggled.

After

Christmas, we put together some impressive results, and lost just four games out of the last 16. Our policy has always been to give our youngsters an early chance to see what they can do. Our aim is to develop players who can go all the way to the first team. Winning trophies at youth level is meaningless, unless you produce players who are going to be first team regulars. The lads found it hard going at first. They regularly met teams on average a year or two older. Often our opponents could call on reasonably experienced reserve team players, as so many clubs had switched their reserve games to midweek. Injuries higher up the club meant

to

complement

Campbell's skills. Up front, Tony Rees gradually came good on the right, while Martin Hayes,

in

his first season as an

apprentice, made the biggest strides. He operated in the centre or on the wing, and finished our top scorer. He grabbed his chance in the reserves with both hands, and even made the first team squad as their injury crisis deepened at the end of the season.

ARSENAL

COACHIN

TERRY NEILL MANAGER Terry has spent most of his working life at Arsenal, since he joined the Gunners from Bangor in Northern Ireland, 24 years ago. He was one of Arsenal's youngestever captains, and went on to captain the Northern Ireland side too. Terry came on as substitute in the 1968 League Cup final against Leeds, but he was just too early for the Gunners glories in the early 70s. He left Highbury in 1970, and became player/manager of second division Hull. While he was with Hull, Terry scored the winning goal in Northern Ireland's 1-0 win over England at Wembley in 1972 — Northern Ireland's only win over England since 1957. Terry had also been chairman of the Professional Footballers Association. Tottenham picked Terry to succeed their veteran boss Bill Nicholson in 1974, and he spent two years at White Hart Lane. He became Arsenal manager in time for the start of the 1976/7 season — and one of his first moves was to sign Malcolm Macdonald from Newcastle for a British record fee. Since the 1977/78 season, Terry has formed a partnership with Don Howe that has taken Arsenal to four cup finals, and never seen the Gunners. slip below tenth in the First Division.

STAFF

DON HOWE CHIEF COACH Don is one of the most respected coaches in Europe, and works with the full England team, as well as with Arsenal.

Don, who comes from Wolverhampton, had a distinguished playing career with West Bromwich, as a right back. He won 23 England caps, and played in the 1958 World Cup in Sweden. He earned a reputation as a skilful, thoughtful defender, and Arsenal's then manager Billy Wright paid a then record of ÂŁ42,000 to bring him to Highbury in 1964. Don suffered a broken leg against Blackpool in 1966. He played his last game for Arsenal at Manchester City in 1967. Don became reserve coach and moved up to first team coach when Dave Sexton left to become Chelsea's manager in 1967. Don and manager Bertie Mee formed a partnership that brought the Fairs Cup to Highbury in 1970, and the league and cup double a year later. He left to become

manager of West Bromwich after the double triumph, and after further spells with Turkish club Galatasaray and Leeds, he returned to Highbury at the start of the 1977/78 season. He coached Arsenal to the 1979 F.A. Cup final triumph over Manchester United, and to cup finals against Ipswich (1978) and West Ham (1980), plus the European Cup-Winnersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cup final against Valencia in 1980.

Don was coach to the England 1982 World Cup team under Ron Greenwood in

Spain.

Too rare a sight last season, alas... an Arsenal Trophy. This is the Daily Express fiveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a-side cup, that the Gunners won at Wembley Arena. The winning squad... back, left to right: Terry Burton, David Cork, Rhys Wilmot. Kenny Sansom, John Devine, Roy Johnson (trainer). Front: Brian Talbot Brian McDermot-t.


Nice to meet you... Tony Woodcock and Lee Chapman narrowly avoid a mid-air collision — and a brush with Notts County ‘keeper Raddy Avramovic.
