Non-league footballer moves from Hednesford Town to Arsenal

Colchester United have signed former Arsenal left-back Cohen Bramall on a two-year deal.

The 23-year-old left the Gunners last season after two-and-a-half years at the Premier League club having joined after being spotted playing for non-league Hednesford Town.

He did not make a first-team appearance for Arsenal but did play for the club's under-21s in the Checkatrade Trophy.

He also played eight times while on loan at Birmingham City in 2017-18.

Bramall had been working at a car plant while playing part-time in the Northern Premier League before he was signed by Arsenal.
