Boreham Wood v Arsenal pre-season game today – latest info

Not really sure that we can call this a pre-season game in the strictest sense of the word but it is an Arsenal XI and will consist mainly of U-23 and U-18 players.

Kick off is at 15.00 UK time and according to the Arsenal official website, the current squad is as follows.

Arthur Okonkwo
Karl Hein
Dominic Thompson
Zech Medley
Mark McGuiness
Zak Swanson
Harrison Clarke
Joseph Olowu
Mazeed Ogungbo
Matthew Smith
Sam Greenwood
Ben Cottrell
Nathan Tormey
Xavier Amaechi
Flo Balogun
Tyreece John-Jules
James Olayinka
Trae Coyle
Robbie Burton
Matthew Dennis

This is subject to change.

The match, from what I can gather, can only be viewed on Premier Sports TV and not via the official website.

That is a shame because it means taking out a subscription and is a bit of a pain, you can always cancel straight after I suppose but truth be told, I am not really sure at all.

To be honest, info is really scarce on this game even on the official website and that is why I am not really classing this as a pre-season game but even so, would have been nice to have been able to watch the game live and see the youngsters in action.

The one advantage with it being on a satellite channel is that there will be an opportunity to get a live stream online somewhere but that is illegal and I would never recommend anyone do such a thing.

For the record, here is a list of the “real” pre-season games, again, according to the official website

Thursday, July 18: Bayern Munich v Arsenal

Saturday, July 20: Fiorentina v Arsenal

Wednesday, July 24: Real Madrid v Arsenal

Sunday, July 28: Arsenal v Lyon

Wednesday, July 31: Angers v Arsenal

Sunday, August 4: Barcelona v Arsenal

    I agree about arsenal player not being available but there are promotional deals that can minimise outlay and you can cancel monthly subscriptions. You do have the opportunity to watch all the pre season on the channel
