Walcott gets hitched to sweetheart Slade

WALCOTT-SLADELONDON, England, June 25- Theo Walcott got married to his childhood sweetheart Melanie Slade at an Italian castle last week.

The Arsenal star married Melanie at the fairytale ceremony at Castello Di Vincigliata in Florence, 10 years after the couple met while Walcott was at Southampton.

Guests were asked not to bring gifts but instead to donate to the Willow Foundation, set up by Arsenal legend Bob Wilson and Macmillan Cancer Support after Melanie’s sister Sarah was diagnosed with kidney cancer at 16.

Walcott invited several of his team-mates including Kieran Gibbs, Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey and Thomas Vermaelen.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain reportedly flew in on easyJet.

Speaking to Hello! magazine, the proud groom, 24, said: ‘It’s fantastic to be able to finally call Melanie my wife.

‘Now we’re excited to see what the future holds for us.

The full interview is in the new edition of Hello!

‘I don’t think marriage will change our relationship – I hope not anyway, as it was already everything I could have wanted.’

Walcott will soon return to pre-season training with the Gunners, and may see some new faces on his arrival.

Manager Arsene Wenger finally seems ready to spend large fees on players, with £22million Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain on the brink of being confirmed.
