Nicholas Samuel Arnold (born 3 July 1993) is an English footballer who plays as a right-back for Wealdstone . He made his debut in the Football League in 2013.

Club career[edit]

Reading[edit]

Arnold joined the Academy at Reading in 2007 and signed a scholarship agreement two years later before turning professional in 2011,[2][3] he signed a new deal in summer 2012 before extending his contract for a further year on 14 June 2013.[4][5]

After signing a new contract he immediately joined Wycombe Wanderers on a season-long loan and made his debut as a late substitute against Morecambe on 3 August,[6][7][8] he made his full debut two weeks later, starting in the 1–0 home defeat to Mansfield Town.[9] After 33 appearances in all competitions,[10] he returned to Reading at the end of the season and was released by the club in May.[11]

Woking[edit]

He trialled at Bradford City in the summer but did not join the club on a permanent basis and eventually signed for Conference Premier side Woking in August 2014.[12][13][14] On 6 September 2014, Arnold made his Woking debut in a 3–1 home victory over Lincoln City, in which he replaced Chris Arthur with eight minutes remaining.[15]

Whitehawk[edit]

After struggling to make an impression at Woking, Arnold joined Conference South side Whitehawk in October 2014.[16] On 1 November 2014, Arnold made his Whitehawk debut in a 0–0 draw with Havant & Waterlooville, in which he played the full 90 minutes.[17] On 20 December 2014, Arnold scored his first Whitehawk goal in a 2–0 away victory against Sutton United.[18] Arnold played a key part in Whitehawk's playoff campaign, in which they were defeated 2-1 by Boreham Wood in the final through a goal from Junior Morias.[19]

On 3 October 2015, Arnold scored his first goal of the 2015/16 campaign in a 6–0 home victory over St Albans City.[20] On 8 May 2016, Arnold scored the opener in a play-off semi-final tie against Ebbsfleet United; the tie resulted in a 2–1 victory for Whitehawk therefore bringing it to a 3–3 result on aggregate. However, Whitehawk were unsuccessful once again in their promotion aim, with a 3–2 defeat on penalties.[21] Arnold was named as right back in the Conference South league team of the season in both years he was at Whitehawk.[22][23]

Aldershot Town[edit]

On 28 June 2016, Arnold joined National League side Aldershot Town on a one-year deal, after his contract at Whitehawk was set to expire.[24] On 13 August 2016, Arnold made his Aldershot Town debut in a 2–0 victory against Wrexham, playing the full 90 minutes.[25]

Wealdstone FC[edit]

In June 2019, Arnold joined Wealdstone [26]
