Jamie Vardy went from Non-League to the Premier League in less than a year when he moved from Halifax to Leicester City, via Fleetwood. Cohen Bramall is the latest player to make such a leap, having joined the Gunners from lowly Hednesford recently.
Last week Cohen Bramall fulfilled the dreams of young people all over the country when he was signed by Arsenal direct from non league football.
The 20 year old had been playing at Hednesford Town before being snapped up by the Gunners last week. He made his debut last night for the U23s against Southampton in the Premier League 2.
The Arsenal side ran out 3-1 winners after going behind, but how did Cohen do himself?
The Mirror have a full breakdown of his game by 15 minute blocks. According to them, Bramall played at left back and used his impressive pace to threaten the Southampton back line.
According to the piece, Bramall made repeated dangerous excursions down the left and linked up nicely with his teammates, showing that he has the physical and technical ability for this level at least.
However a few stray passes seemed to shake his confidence, meaning that perhaps the youngster needs a little more time working on his composure and the mental side of his game.
Overall a 7.5 out of 10 sounds fair for Cohen.
