AFC Bournemouth defeated Southern League Division One Central side Fleet Town in the Hampshire Senior Cup on Tuesday night last week.

After coming from two goals down, the Cherries went on to score six goals for the second consecutive game in this competition.

After defeating Winchester City 6-0 at Dean Court in the previous round, the Cherries progressed past Fleet with a 6-2 victory at New Milton’s Fawcett`s Field ground.

AFC Bournemouth youngster Brandon Goodship stole the headlines with a hat-trick and AFC Bournemouth youth team manager Ross Embleton praised the young striker following the victory.

Embleton told afcb.co.uk

“I was really pleased for him because he`s been patient waiting for his opportunity, He has had a lot of people ahead of him, plus he has had a couple of weeks where it`s not happened for him in the youth team and it could have got on top of him.

“I am delighted that not only he scored but also that he then did so well on Tuesday night.”


AFC Bournemouth have used the Hampshire Senior Cup fixtures to mainly give experience to the development squad and youth team players and the next fixture will be against Eastleigh in the Quarter-Finals.

Embleton added…

‘…It is a great opportunity for Chris (Hargreaves, development coach) to see the boys and Eddie (Howe) and Jason (Tindall) were also at the game. It also gives them a good chance to show what they are all about and that they are capable of making the step up…’
