Everyone at Arsenal Football is devastated to hear of the death of our much-loved former player Kevin Campbell, at the age of 54.

A boyhood Arsenal supporter, Kevin joined our youth setup in 1985 aged 15 and soon set about demonstrating his incredible eye for goal, becoming the most prolific young striker in the country.

He won the FA Youth Cup in 1988, scoring 61 goals that season from 53 appearances at youth and reserve level. His first-team debut followed soon afterwards, at the age of 18 – ironically against Everton, who he would also represent with great distinction later in his career.
