Arsenal have axed their mascot Gunnersaurus – ending Jerry Quy’s 27-year stint in the role.

The long-term club servant has been let go as part of Arsenal’s streamlining process.

Arsenal announced 55 staff members were made redundant earlier in the summer due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Quy’s role was only part-term so was not included among those departures.

But he is another casualty in the cost-cutting process in north London.

With no supporters at the ground due to games continuing to take place behind closed doors, Gunnersauras has little use at present.

Arsenal have let their beloved mascot go.

The mascot has been deemed no longer necessary, according to The Athletic .

Arsenal do claim they intend to bring him back, however, which would likely be once fans are properly back in stadiums.

Nevertheless, the move to let Quy go after years of loyalty has not gone down well with supporters, especially the idea that it’s cost-effective to do so when their age budget is so high.

On Twitter, one Arsenal fan put: “One of the richest clubs in the world axes their part time mascot of 27 years as part of a ‘costs cutting’ initiative. Pretty shameful #Gunnersaurus”.

Gunnersauras is a real favourite of fans at games.
