Barnet’s now former ground Underhill was the setting for an Arsenal legends XI v World Refugee XI match in aid of World Refugee Day on Sunday.
The game ended 1-1 and featured a host of former Arsenal greats, including Ian Wright, Ray Parlour, Tony Adams, Nigel Winturburn and Michael Thomas with the Gunners managed by Olympics hero Mo Farah.
Attendance money at the charity match went to The Refugee Council and former Premier League referee Mark Halsey refereed.
The scorers on the day were Ian Wright for Arsenal and Omar Riza for the World Refugee XI.
Mo Farah also turned out on the left wing for Arsenal, showing off his pace…
Whilst Tony Adams is not necessarily flavour of the month at the Emirates with his outspoken comments about the club dominating Arsenal news on Sunday, the former captain is a bona fide legend having lifted the league title in the 80s, 90 and 00s.
One of the highlights of the charity match saw Tony Adams lift his arm up for offside, bringing a cheer from supporters in attendance and harking back to the good old days of George Graham.
Further videos from the match show Mo Farah playing on the left wing and Ian Wright signing autographs post match.
