PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, Aug. 17, (Reuter):

ARSENAL, the English First Division football club ended their Caribbean tour on Sunday with a 6-2 victory over Trinidad.

The team flew back to London yesterday in two batches.

Today the team was met by reporters when it arrived at London Airport.

Team-manager Billy Wright, commenting on the bottle-throwing scene when the team played at Kingston, Jamaica said, "There were only two incidents. I think the trouble began because they were upset that their team was being beaten. I would not like to make a comment beyond that. As far as I am concerned, it is a dead duck."

Arsenal played six games on the tour, winning five and drawing one.

Billy Wright said that the tour had been 'very satisfactory'.
