Young French Winger, gatecrashes Colney hoping for a trial.

A 24 year old Winger, Achille Degan, who plays for Saint-Lô in the fifth tier of the French league is so desperate to play for Arsenal, he turned up and camped outside London Colney yesterday in the hopes of securing a trial.

He made his own way from Normandy to Hertfordshire with only one thing on his mind, to convince Arsène Wenger of handing him a trial.

Degan turned up at Colney yesterday with full kit bag ready at the pindrop in hopes of a trial but as of this moment, Wenger has yet to grant it. However the trial and subsequent signing of young, former Hednesford Town Left-Back Cohen Bramhall, has seemingly given the Frenchman hope and he says he will keep coming back until Arsenal say yes.

Degan said yesterday “I am courageous and I am determined. I want to show by my courage that I can succeed and to show  [the world] that only willpower, perseverance, fight, vision and hard work, can take us wherever we want to go.”

He added of Arsène Wenger “The coach does not know me yet but I know him and I admire him. I respect the work he has been doing for all these years and I don’t think it is over, he still has much to give to Arsenal. Much more.”
