AFC Bournemouth


1.1m fans
Ranked: 15th 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

King Arthur is back!!!!!

Boruc talisman πŸ’ͺ

That face when you watch back Wilson’s goal !! πŸ’ UTCIAD

Boruc should be starting all matches, clean sheet unlike Begovic. UTCIAD!!

Amazing result, well done boys, also well done to Artur Boruc Callum and Josh, xxπŸ’πŸ’

Great result Cherries from a baggie.. wonder if the β€œanti Eddie” fans will pop up??

Josh King is on fire πŸ”₯

What a great game, must admit I thought the other team would draw or even get a quick 2 but I should have had more faith. Was good to see Callum score the first and King seal it. A good result.

Encouraging performances at the back today - Cook and Ake solid. Clyne is reliable and quick.

About time....

Well Done Cherries!

Thats better well done you guys, now you need to build on it.. πŸ‘ From a disgruntled Pompey fan.

Breakfast breakfast breakfast

Great match, edge of your seat football! So good to see such support for Jamie Bird and his family who are trying to raise enough money for his funeral

Brilliant victory - so richly deserved! Celebrate hard tonight Cherries and be back and get many more wins till the end of the season! Well done guys! UTCIAD πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’

Chelsea is waiting for you Callum Wilson.


Pure class πŸ’β™₯️


Well done guys, a well deserved win xxx πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’

Well done Bournemouth.
