Arsenal have agreed to loan young goalkeeper Matt Macey to Accrington Stanley for a month, as reported by the club’s official Twitter account.

The 20 year old plays regularly for the club’s Under 21 side, making seven appearances for the team, which is managed by Steve Gatting this season.
This follows on from a successful campaign last time out, which saw him make 19 appearances.
With the series of injuries suffered by Arsenal goalkeepers Wojciech Sczcesny and David Ospina recently, Macey was involved in the first team only recently.
He had a place on the bench, playing understudy to Emiliano Martinez as the Gunners won against both West Bromwich Albion and Southampton, away and at home respectively.
Arsenal’s hope is that Macey will play considerable first team football for Stanley during his one month loan spell at the Crown Ground, and will go on to pick up vital experience as a result of the loan deal.
