Arsenal confirm deal for Cohen Bramall


Arsenal have confirmed that Cohen Bramall has signed from non-league side Hednesford Town.

The 20-year-old left-back was spotted by Gunners scouts while plying his trade in the seventh tier of English football and moves to the Emirates after impressing during a recent trial.

Bramall, who was recently made redundant from a job working at a Bentley factory, will gain experience with the Gunners under-23s with a view to providing long-term back up to Nacho Monreal and Kieran Gibbs.

Good luck to the kid. It’s a huge step up.


  1. Seems so strange this Winter not to have any expectation of transfer activity by Wenger, can’t remember the last Winter that there was not an expectation of Wenger trying to bring someone in (whether he did or not is a different story of course).

  2. Good luck to the lad! A real life ‘Journey mode’ on FIFA. Hopefully see him in action when here in Australia for the July tour!

    • Everybody is making a big deal of it. SkySports, BBC. It’s a great story.

      And you haven’t even seen him play, so you have NO idea how good he is or what his potential is.

    • I’m not sure why your upset with bringing in a young talent in the hopes he can so something in the future. I am also pretty sure that there is no real fan fare about this, just mentioning it.

  5. It’s a different thing to see your dreams come true. It’s quite something else to see a dream you didn’t even dare to dream come true like this. Good luck to Bramall

  6. This is the best car related Arsenal story since Dennis Bergkamp stopped for petrol on the way home.

    Oh and when Bendtner did that… other thing.
