Academy players and the First Team

I was wondering - does anyone know how / when Arsenal decide to promote players from the Academy to the First Team ? For example, Smith-Rowe now seems to be a regular selection in first team match squads but remains technically an Academy player.

When do they get promoted ?

Usually its announced before the new season starts and they have to be registered in time.
Some are registered for Euro cup but not Premiership. You can check which players are registered for Euro Cup on the Euro website

- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.
