AFC Bournemouth


1.2m fans
Ranked: 17th in Premier League

Boscombe St. John's Institute F.C. was founded in 1890 (probably) and became AFC Bournemouth in 1972. Having spent many years battling in the lower tiers of the game they rose to the Premiership in 2015. Nicknamed The Cherries, their home colours are red and black striped shirts, with black shorts and socks.

Highlights in their long history include a famous victory over Manchester United back in 1984 under the direction of a young Harry Redknapp and an 11-0 victory over Margate in 1971. More recently they turned around a difficult start to the 15-16 season with back-to-back wins against Chelsea and Manchester United and finished 16th

Be good in the close season come back fitter than ever


glad that season is over. it started with so much promise but one bad bit of fortune after another turned it into a scrap. have to give praise to those who stepped up, but hopefully next season our fortunes will be much improved and we can look forward to a season challenging for 7th, up the cherries!!!

Onwards & Upwards 🍒🍒🍒👍

What a long season! It is nice to see photos of those whom we haven't seen in a while due to injuries. Please come back healthy and strong!
