PHOTO: Arsenal star shares youthful pic of himself in first FA Cup final

Wilshere Ramsey

Aaron Ramsey has previous with the FA Cup Final after playing in it for Cardiff City.


On Saturday Arsenal can bring to an end what has been a barren spell without a trophy, stretching back to the FA Cup Final success against Manchester United in 2005.

The Gunners have to take on Hull City in the FA Cup final at Wembley in a game they are the obvious favourites for - although complacency is unlikely to be prevalent for one Gunner.

Aaron Ramsey has tasted Wembley disappointment from an early age. In fact the 23-year-old has demonstrated how early with a post on his social media channels today.

Ramsey has posted a picture of a teenage self facing off against Portsmouth in the FA Cup. Ramsey, who was 17 at the time and being lined up by Everton, Manchester United and a plethora of big teams, came on in the 61st minute for Peter Whittingham.

Unfortunately he could not inspire an upset on the day. A goal from Kanu former Arsenal hero Kanu in the 37th minute was enough to see Pompey trough.

Ramsey will hope to go one step better this weekend.
