Nketiah hits four as Arsenal U18s reach double figures in Holland

Arsenal U18s stepped up their preparations for the new campaign by thrashing local Dutch side RKDEO 10-1 this morning.

The young Gunners are currently involved in a pre-season training camp in the Netherlands as they prepare to start their new league season next month.

Kaylen Hinds, who missed part of last season through injury, hit an impressive hat-trick, whilst first-year Eddie Nketiah scored four goals.

New signing Yassin Fortune was also on the scoresheet along with Kristopher Da Graca and schoolboy Reiss Nelson.

Recent recruits Jordi Osei-Tutu and Kostas Pileas both started, whilst Vlad Dragomir was on the bench.

Chris Willock, Ben Sheaf, Aaron Eyoma and Marc Bola have remained in England to train with Arsenal’s U21 team.

  1. How about Johnson, Robinson and Joe Willock, are they involved in a training camp in the Netherlands or left home for some reason, maybe injury or so? Thanks for shearing information!

      1. Joe Willock travelled to the Netherlands but he missed the game, possibly through injury. Johnson, Robinson + Mavididi are training with the U21s and I presume Adelaide is as well.
