Crowley pens first pro contract at Arsenal

Crowley pens first pro contract at Arsenal

Promising Arsenal youngster Daniel Crowley has put pen-to-paper on his first professional deal with the club after turning 17.

Recruited in July 2013 from Aston Villa having impressing against Arsenal at under-18 level, the midfielder endured an injury hit first campaign with the Gunners but showed flashes of why he’s so highly rated by assisting four goals and netting twice against Peterborough in the FA Youth Cup.

An England youth international, Crowley says he bases his game on players like Eden Hazard, Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi, likes watching TV and drinking tea and gets pumped for games by listening to ‘Show Me Love’ by Robin S – a tune that was written the year Arsenal became Cup Kings in 1993, four years before he was born!

Let’s hope we’ve reason to show him some love in the years to come.

Sorry about the quality of the picture, that’s the view most opponents get after he’s nipped past them. No apologies for the bad gag.

  2. While not directly relevant. But still about young promise. Anybody know what the deal is with Gnabry? He looked really really promising during his brief run outs last season. Particularly against Swansea.
    I’m really hoping to see more of him this season. But the tone of the pre-season would suggest otherwise :/

    Only one thing matters in this life: get them to sign on the line which is dotted.

  9. Wow, we have a lot of midfield options in the youth ranks. Zelalem, Olsson, Toral, Crowley, Jebb (and now Willock). Hope the lot of them can make the first team, hopefully here…..

  10. I remember how excited I got when I was told about a youthful Irish lad at the Arsenal. I was lied to.
    Our last player two players to turn out for the Arsenal are Anto Stokes & Eddie McGoldrick.
    You can understand my excitement

  14. Best of luck to him. He’s been talked about a lot so fingers crossed we get to see him in the first team in the next few years.
