Goulden Moments For Arsenal On This Day, 26th November 1958

Juventus arrived at Highbury for the first time on this day in 1958. Having joined Arsenal at 15, his Arsenal career was interrupted by National Service (no chance of employing an army of lawyers to trawl through laws to avoid it) and he made one Arsenal appearance against Leeds United in a competitive match. Despite several matches in friendlies, he was unable to force his way into the first team on a regular basis.

This night, he emerged from the substitutes bench to score his only goal in first team colours.
