(PRWEB UK) 23 November 2012
Digital Sports Group today announced that The PFA Facebook fan page of Theo Walcott has broken the 15% daily growth barrier making it the fastest growing Theo Walcott page on Facebook. The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Arsenal winger since it's launch and now boasts a vibrant and rapidly growing community of fans. The Facebook page along with Theo Walcott player profile on football.co.uk provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
Lightning-fast forward Theo Walcott enjoyed perhaps his best Arsenal season to date in 2011/12.
Making 46 appearances, scoring 11 goals and providing 12 assists, the England international was a consistent threat and reaped the benefits of a campaign in which he was untroubled by significant injury.
His brace in the 5-2 win over Tottenham Hotspur - two fine finishes that came after he was criticised for a below-par first-half display - will live long in the memory, but Theo was never far from the action.
Vital winners in each leg of the Champions League qualifying tie against Udinese, a stunning solo goal at Stamford Bridge and a hat-trick of assists in the 7-1 win over Blackburn Rovers all impressed - while Robin van Persie admitted that his relationship with Theo played a big role in his own scoring tally
Theo’s campaign finished on international duty with England, for whom he made four substitute appearances in Euro 2012. His goal and assist in the 3-2 win over Sweden were perhaps England’s finest moments of the tournament, and Theo’s best for the national team since a hat-trick against Croatia in September 2008.
Having signed for Arsenal from Southampton in 2006, Theo won a call-up to England’s World Cup squad later that year - and became the country’s youngest-ever full international at 17 years and 75 days when he faced Hungary
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Theo Walcott really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Arsenal and England this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”
“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Theo Walcott .”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player Profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
