Mark Randall has signed professional terms with the Club.
The highly-rated central midfielder made seven appearances for the Reserves last season while still a schoolboy and has continued to make excellent progress this term.
Randall came on during the first-ever game at Emirates Stadium last July - Dennis Bergkamp's Testimonial. He also travelled with the first-team squad to Austria for Arsenal's pre-season training camp and featured in the 3-0 friendly win over AZ Alkmaar.
The 17-year-old has made two substitute appearances in the Carling Cup this season. He came on for the final 17 minutes of the Third-Round victory at West Brom and emerged from the bench 20 minutes from time in the Fourth-Round win at Everton.
