Anthony Jeffrey

Young forward Anthony Jeffrey has joined Skrill Conference South side Boreham Wood FC on loan until January 2, 2014.

The 19-year-old spent the final two months of last season on loan in League One with Stevenage FC, and now heads to Meadow Park to gain further first-team experience.

Jeffrey, who joined the Arsenal academy aged eight, is a member of the Club’s Under-21s set-up, and has featured for Steve Gatting’s side three times so far this term.

He will join up with Gunners team-mate Austin Lipman, also on loan at Meadow Park, under the management of former Arsenal player Ian Allinson.

Everyone at Arsenal wishes Anthony well for his time with the Wood.
