Arsenal U23s rounded off their pre-season preparations with an emphatic 6-1 victory against Watford U23s at London Colney yesterday, with Rob Holding making his return from injury.
The centre-back hadn’t featured since suffering a serious knee injury in December last year, but he came through 90 minutes unscathed.
Arsenal were hugely impressive, with Robbie Burton and Jordan McEneff amongst the scorers.
James Olayinka, Zech Medley and Tyreece John-Jules, who featured for the first-team in pre-season, were all involved.
Steve Bould’s side get their season underway on August 12th, when they face Blackburn Rovers away.
