The new season is underway and so far four Arsenal players have joined various clubs on a temporary basis. Carl Jenkinson will spend the season with West Ham United in the Premier League, whilst Benik Afobe has linked up with League One side MK Dons. Austin Lipman has returned to Boreham Wood of the Conference South and Wellington is back in Spain once more, this time with La Liga outfit Almeria. You can follow their progress here throughout the season.

Benik Afobe made his competitive debut for MK Dons yesterday, with the striker playing the last 13 minutes as a substitute as his temporary side beat Gillingham 4-2. MK Dons were 2-0 down after 29 minutes, but recovered to win the game, although all of the goals had been scored by the time Afobe entered the field as a replacement for Will Grigg.

Austin Lipman made the first appearance of his second stint at Boreham Wood. The Hale End product started and played 70 minutes at Meadow Park as his side dispatched of Farnborough with a 2-0 victory. Lipman was impressive throughout his time on the field, with the youngster playing some intelligent passes.

Carl Jenkinson could miss the start of the new Premier League season after sustaining a hamstring injury during his West Ham debut last weekend. The right-back endured a nightmare start to his Hammers’ career as he gave away an early penalty in their friendly defeat Malaga before sustaining the aforementioned injury.

Wellington‘s Almeria don’t start their league campaign until August 23rd, when they host Espanyol.

  1. I see from the Newsnow site that chelsea have a report on their site of an U18 tournament that them & AFC took part in, shame that Arsenal.com can’t keep us as informed.

    1. Arsenal probably didn’t want to mention it because spurs won the tournament beating us, chelsea and united along the way. We did beat chelsea though with goals from crowley (again) and zelalem.
