Photographer's Note

Yesterday I had the privilege of attending the Testimonial of an Arsenal legend, Dennis Bergkamp held at the Emirates Stadium, the Gunners new home.

These final scenes are when the "Legends" of Arsenal and Ajax paid tribute to Dennis at the end of the match (which the Gunners won 2-1). It was fitting that the first goal for Arsenal in the new stadium was scored by Thierry Henry!

The game was a sell-out with 54,000 fans attending.

If there are any Arsenal fans looking, I don't have to tell you who these players are. There were a lot of very familiar faces around playing in the second half. Even Patrick Vieira put on Arsenal Colours again to pay tribute to Dennis.

Taken from my seat, my camera was on full zoom...I'm amazed it picked out so much detail. The line in the corner was a little distracting and I thought long and hard about cloning it out. The fact is, that was where they were standing and it was part of the pitch, so I decided to leave it in.

Thank you Dennis, for eleven wonderful years of your magic. We will miss you.

Thanks for looking.
