Bramall 'delighted' to have made Arsenal debut: From non-league to Arsenal

Cohen Bramall has commented on making his Arsenal debut in yesterday’s friendly against Sydney FC.

  • Bramall made his senior debut for Arsenal against Sydney FC
  • He joined from non-league Hendesford Town last January

The left back made his first senior appearance for Arsenal in Thursday’s friendly against Sydney FC and made a good account of himself.

Understandably, Bramall is pretty pleased to have made his debut.

It’s been some rise for Bramall. He joined Arsenal from non-league Hednesford Town last January after impressing on a trial he initially thought was a prank.

Within weeks of being laid off his day job at Bentley Motors, he was an Arsenal player.

Bramall featured for Arsenal’s U23 side for the remainder of that season, before getting his first team opportunity on tour with Arsenal.

He played left wing-back against Sydney FC and was a threat with his pace and running in behind.

Bramall could yet feature against the likes of Bayern Munich and Chelsea as well this pre-season.
