Nine-year-old Emily Jamieson was a hit for Arsenal's under-10 Centre of Excellence side.

She scored five goals during the Festival of Football tournament in Gloucester including a hat-trick against Gloucester City in a 3-0 win.

The team conceded only one goal all day and this was unfortunately in the semi-finals where they lost 1-0 to Swansea.

She goes to Ashtree Junior School in Stevenage and lives in the town.

Emily has played for local boys' side Stevenage Town Youth (now under-10s) for the last three years and scored 59 goals in that time.

She has also played for Stevenage Boro girls under-11s this season and finished as top scorer.

Emily was spotted at a soccer school in February and asked to trial for next season's Arsenal under-12 side.

She attended a trial last month and was assessed by the current Arsenal and England captain Faye White. Emily has now been invited to a further under-12 trial later this month.

Her impressive performances earned her place in the under-10 Arsenal side at the Festival of Football tournament in Gloucester.
