Cohen Bramall is on trial with AFC Wimbledon after being released by Arsenal at the end of last season.
Technically, Bramall is still under contract with Arsenal until June 30th, but he’s wasting no time looking for a new club to pick him up. The 23-year-old left-back has joined AFC Wimbledon on trial, and he started their friendly against Wexford FC on Saturday.

Bramall had a solid half, creating a chance or two down the left-hand side, before he and the rest of the team were replaced by 11 subs for the second half at 0-0. It remains to be seen if he’s done enough to impress the coaches at his potential new club.
It would be good to see the defender starting again in the lower leagues. He was never going to get a proper run in the team with Arsenal, so it’s hard to say exactly how high he can go if he does play more regularly.
Bramall previously spent time on loan in the Championship with Birmingham in 2017/18, but a couple of injuries and a change in manager leaving him out of favour meant he only managed eight matches all season. League One should offer him more opportunities.
