Frimpong eyeing FA Youth Cup as Arsenal springboard

Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong sees their FA Youth Cup campaign as a springboard into the first team.

The Gunners kickoff their defence against Crewe Alexandra tonight.

"I do feel the extra responsibility this season and I have been thinking about that," Frimpong told Arsenal TV Online.

"Last year players like Sanchez Watt, Henri Lansbury, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, they were the older players and they dealt with it really well. They spurred the team on and helped the younger players come through.

"Hopefully this year players like me and Cedric Evina, we are the older players so hopefully we can show the younger players how it is done, take them on to the field and win games."
