Arsenal have announced on their official website that the full back has finalized his move and will initially represent the club’s Under-23 side.
Cohen Bramall’s journey from a non-League footballer to joining a Premier League superpower has been completed as the 20-year-old has signed for Arsenal.
Bramall, who will earn in the region of £3,000 per week, learned of his move just days after being made redundant from his £400-a-week job as a factory worker at Bentley Motors in Crewe.
He initially thought the call from Arsenal was a prank but the move is now a reality with Bramall posing for pictures with the traditional red home kit.
The former Hednesford Town full back, speaking to Arsenal Player, said of his move: ‘It feels incredible. I can’t believe I’m here already. It’s been mental.
‘It’s been crazy. I played for Hednesford Town. I had been there for about five months and the manager was Lee McDonald who really took me on.
‘I wanted to be a left winger and he said in front of my mum and dad “no I want you to be a left back”.
‘I was new to it but I played left back for him and he gave me a lot of confidence to be a proper left back.’
Indeed life is a mystery and there should be hope.
