Gavin is a fine example of the strength of Arsenal’s Academy. Having been at the Club since the age of nine, the younger brother of Justin now finds himself on the cusp of the first-team.
Gavin was named in the bench in four of the Gunners’ five Carling Cup fixtures and also played in the 2-1 win over Barnet in pre-season. His steady performance at Underhill earned him a spot at the first-team’s training camp in Austria, where he featured in two friendlies.
The youngster is fast and athletic, like his sibling, and is comfortable across the back four, although he excels at centre-half. From there Gavin led the Under-18s in 2006/07, and retained the armband at times during the most recent Reserve campaign.
He made 11 appearances for Neil Banfield but missed the start of the campaign because of international commitments with England Under-19s.
A talented sprinter, Gavin regularly topped the charts in the squad’s speed tests last year.
