[Photos] Wilshere grabs assist during run-out for Arsenal U21’s

By on April 14, 2016

Jack Wilshere stepped-up his recovery from a fractured fibula after playing 90 minutes for the Arsenal under-21’s side this afternoon.

Wilshere has been in light training this month after finally overcoming a fractured fibula that he sustained in pre-season and he took his first steps on to the pitch with a 60 minute run out for the under-21’s last Friday.

The 24-year-old continued his comeback after coming through the full 90 minutes during the youth sides disappointing 3-1 defeat at Swansea this afternoon – although Jack did play a key role in our goal after playing in Serge Gnabry with a fine through-ball to allow the German youngster to pull one back.

Wilshere is now expected to play in the under-21’s final game of the season at home to West Brom on Monday night where we need a win to secure promotion back to the top flight.

As long as he doesn’t suffer any setbacks, the midfielder could then be in contention for a place in the first team squad when we welcome West Brom to the Emirates for our re-arranged Premier League game next Thursday night.

Here are some photos of Wilshere in action this afternoon.
