Pensioners attend FA Cup Final screening at Emirates Stadium

Posted on

A few IPF members attended the screening of Arsenal’s FA Cup final victory over Hull City last Saturday thanks to Alex Smith of┬áNorth London Cares. Most of the group met at the Drovers Centre in North Road where they watched Fever Pitch, a film about an Arsenal supporter and his devotion to the Gunners; before getting cabs to the Emirates Stadium for the screening.

After a disastrous start, with Arsenal going 2-0 down after eight minutes, the fightback started with a stunning free kick less than ten minutes later. Midway through the second half, an equalizer was bundled in for 2-2 which is the way it stayed until the end of the 90 minutes. In the second half of the 30 minute extra time, Arsenal went 3-2 up surviving a late scare to win their first trophy in nine years.

As you can see, the pensioners greatly enjoyed their day and the thrilling roller-coaster ride the match provided for them, and were one of the last ones to leave the stadium.
