    AFC Bournemouth v Swansea City AFC
    Friday August 1st 2014 -7.30pm

    Venue: Dean Court aka The Goldsands Stadium
    Bournemouth Manager: Eddie Howe

    FINAL SCORE: CHERRIES 3-1 SWANS



    Starting X1 v Bournemouth: Tremmel, Rangel (c), Tancock, Richards, Kingsley, King, Lucas, Sheehan, Montero, Dyer, Samuel.

    After wins in Devon over Plymouth and Exeter, the Swans travel to Dorset in search of a South Coast hat-trick on Friday night. Bournemouth will mark a step up in competition having finished 10th in last seasons Championship and will provide the Swans with a tough work out on their new state of the art £750,000 fibre-sand pitch.

    Last season the Cherries beat QPR and Wigan at home as well as stuffing both Nottingham Forest and Leeds United 4-1 and completed an impressive double over Reading. This ain't going to be a picnic!

    After the win in Exeter Monk stated "There are improvements to be made, fitness and sharpness to come, while we are tweaking things in terms of positions and personnel which will be the case until the start of the season."

    It will be an interesting fixture as it could be said that Bournemouth are "Doing a Swans". After narrowly avoiding relegation from the Football League in 2008/09, Bournemouth were promoted to League One at the end of 2009/10. They then won promotion to the Championship at the end of the 2012/13, putting them in the second tier of the league for only the second time in their history. Can they make the big step up to the Premiership? They have a talented young manager in Eddie Howe who will ensure the Cherries are challenging for a play off spot this season.

    Swans Squad for Bournemouth and Reading friendlies: Gerhard Tremmel, Lukasz Fabianski; Angel Rangel, Dwight Tiendalli, Jazz Richards, Liam Shephard; Ashley Williams, Kyle Bartley, Scott Tancock; Neil Taylor, Stephen Kingsley, Raheem Hanley; Ki Sung-Yueng, Jonjo Shelvey, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Lee Lucas, Josh Sheehan, Henry Jones, Adam King; Nathan Dyer, Wayne Routledge, Jefferson Montero, Alex Bray; Wilfried Bony, Bafetimbi Gomis, Alex Samuel.


    The Cherries are no strangers to opposition who play in white shirts - this time last year they played Real Madrid in front of a sell out crowd at Dean Court:


    The Cherries will also be playing on Saturday, at Oxford United, and have had a mixed pre-season so far narrowly losing to premiership Southampton 1-0 on the weekend and beating local rivals Portsmouth 3-2 on Tuesday night - Bournemth v Southampton - 25th Jul 2014 | Report | Friendly Match | Sky Sports Football

    While Garry Monk appears to have signed the majority of his targets this summer, there are stilll likely to be more departures and arrivals at both Clubs. Monk has confirmed the Swans will be looking to add to the squad before the league campaign gets underway “I hope to bring in a few more players. I’ll be working closely with the chairman and the board to see what we can do.”

    Injuries have already started to mount in the squad. Rory Donnelly has picked up a nasty injury likely to keep him out for three months. Leon Britton and Marvin Emnes will both miss the rest of pre-season with knee problems and there appear to be a few niggles. Rangel missed Exeter with a dead-leg as did Chico Flores who is nursing a back injury. Siggy was the only Swans sub not to be used at Exeter as he has a slight injury problem and was not risked.

    Notable Cherries include Lee Camp, ex-Swan Shaun MacDonald and Ian Harte. Full Squad - AFC Bournemouth team page

    The history of AFC Bournemouth is heavily linked to good Old 'Arry Rednapp who still resides in the area at Sandbanks. An ex-Cherry manager himself, he once had his now famous son on the bench against the Swans. This is what Saint & Greavsie had to say about it:


    Travel News - The official buses leave the stadium at 1pm. Cost - 18 smackers
    Match Tickets - Adult – 15 smackers, Under 16 – 7s, Student – 10s, OAP – 10s. Online and telephone tickets for the match are now off sale. You can still purchase tickets in-person at the Ticket Office until midday on Thursday or on the day at Bournemouth.

    Swans Pre-Season Scorers

    1 - Donnelly, Amat, Gomis, Sheehan, Dyer.

    Staying in Bournemouth for the weekend?

    Despite it’s reputation as being a place for old fogeys, Bournemouth is a vibrant city with plenty of places for food and ale. Probably the South coasts premier holiday destinantion it boasts one of the richest areas in the UK, Sandbanks at Poole and provides a great location for a weekend away. The stadium is 1 mile from Bournemouth Beach - so take your strides.

    Special places of interest nearby include Corfe Castle built by William the Conqueror and the majestic Durdle Door as well as Neveroffside's house - he has invited all Jacks around his house on Friday evening for a post match barbie. Where have I put his address.....:112:

    I've been to Bournemouth, it was a mare. It was during our promotion season from League 1.

    The game was moved to a Sunday 3pm kick off due to it being an international weekend and a Wales were playing on the Saturday.

    We left in good time and arrived in Bournemouth about 2pm on Thursday. Now that day was ok because we went out for a quiet drink and a curry and got back to our b&b at approx 4am. We even had a go at a bucking bronco and tried climbing the lap dancing poles in a nightclub.

    Friday was the problem because lunchtime a group of Turks there for the game had a run in with some locals and smashed up the Weatherspoons there. The OB then instructed all the local pubs and clubs not to serve any Welsh people. We found this out because we were turned away from pubs on Friday afternoon and the landlords and bouncers all told us what they had been told to do. We got around this by pretending to be wurzels and using the worst attempt at a Bristol accent ever. Luckily one of the lads was English and he was bar monkey for the weekend .

    At least we won the game 4-1 and the weather was glorious, couldn't wait to go home, the locals were stuck up little Tory boys and girls. No sense of humour and pig ignorant. I wouldn't stay there again, would only go for a day to watch the Swans and they don't have rissoles either

    Time for the tinkering to stop, whilst its good to see the youngsters getting some experience we only have 3 games till season starts, I expect a thin turnout of experienced pros Friday then nearer to our match day lineup for reading and Villarreal.
    Those that will play against manure need game time on the pitch together sooner rather than later.
