Alfie Matthews leaves Arsenal

Alfie Matthews has left Arsenal.

The striker wasn’t offered a professional contract by Arsenal and was instead granted an excess period which allowed him to train with the Gunners while he was awaiting offers from other clubs. He was recently on trial with Crystal Palace.

The 18-year-old progressed through the ranks at Arsenal’s Hale End academy and was very highly regarded when he was a schoolboy.

Having progressed to scholarship terms in 2018, he went on to make 26 appearances for the U18s, scoring five goals. He was also named on the bench for the U23s away to Derby County last season.
