Arsenal coach Banfield delighted with Frimpong emergence

Arsenal reserves coach Neil Banfield is delighted with the number of youngsters coming through at 2012.

Plenty of Arsenal youngsters have made the journey down that corridor including three who established themselves in 2011: Wojciech Szczesny, Francis Coquelin and Emmanuel Frimpong.

"Emmanuel has done exceptionally well, along with Jack [Wilshere], Kieran [Gibbs], Wojciech [Szczesny] and Johan [Djourou] - they've come through the Club's youth development structure and done brilliantly," Banfield told

"When you get there you've done well, they know it and hopefully there will be some more following in their footsteps in the near future."
