Wilshere in dugout as Arsenal dumped out of FA Youth Cup by Colchester

Jack Wilshere was in the dugout as Arsenal were knocked out of the FA Youth Cup by Colchester last night.

It was a stunning 3-0 victory for Colchester, as a highly-rated side Arsenal were dumped out in the third round.

The last time the two sides met in the Youth Cup, Arsenal won 5-1, with Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka playing starring roles.

But there was no repeat at Colchester's JobServe Community Stadium as Ryan Lowe, Samson Tovide and Kaan Bennett netted in a rout for the hosts.

Wilshire is still hoping to continue his playing career but is gaining experience coaching the U18s.

And the former Gunners and England midfielder would not have been impressed as his side succumbed to a giant-killing.
