AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe was pleased with trialist Harry Cornick’s performance against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday afternoon.
Cornick has joined the AFC Bournemouth squad for training this week after the youngster had previously been linked with Premier League sides Stoke, Southampton, Reading and Fulham.
The 17 year old Christchurch right winger was introduced to the game by development squad manager Chris Hargreaves in the 70th minute with the Cherries 1-0 up following a first half goal from Frank Demouge.
Within a couple of minutes and with one of his first touches in the game, Cornick doubled the Cherries lead, using pace to come inside from the right flank before beating the ‘keeper.
The Cherries went on to win the game 4-1 with further goals from Jordan Chiedozie and Lorenzo Davids.
Howe told the Daily Echo…
“We haven`t seen too much of Harry yet. He played right midfield and came on and scored almost with his first touch. It has been interesting to see him over the past couple of days.
“You could see he was really nervous in his first day in training but that was only to be expected. I thought he acquitted himself well in the game.”
