FOOTBALL: Seconds for young Guns; Blackburn 3 Arsenal 1 (Agg: 3-6).
ARSENAL left out top starlet Jermaine Pennant - and then stumbled to their second FA Youth Cup success in a row.
The boy Gunners went to Blackburn with a five-goal lead without Pennant, who played in David Seaman's testimonial.
Top scorer Jonathan Walters put Rovers ahead early on and then Alan Morgan's shot was deflected home off unlucky Arsenal skipper Ben Chorley.
But Chorley struck back almost immediately in first half stoppage time, before Neil Danns curled in Rovers' third on the hour.
