AFC Bournemouth: Hot prospect Baily Cargill tipped to flourish under Cherries old boy Jamie Day
Day played alongside Howe and Jason Tindall when he made 20 appearances for Cherries between 1999 and 2001 and is one of the hottest managerial properties in non-league.
He has continued to keep close ties with Howe, Tindall and development squad coach Stephen Purches, and recently completed a loan move for teenage defender Cargill.
A product of the Dean Court youth ranks, Cargill, who celebrated his 18th birthday on Sunday, has turned in three impressive displays for Welling against Barnet, Braintree and Tamworth.
Howe told the Daily Echo: “It is a big step for Baily. It is great from our perspective because it will be a good test for him at this stage of his career. I think it is just what he needs and, hopefully, he can be the first of many to get this type of exposure.
“We really feel it will bring on his game because it is a very competitive level and very physical. Baily has got the physical attributes to deal with it and has also got the technical attributes we look for. We are pleased with him and he has made a really good start.
“It is important we send players to clubs with managers and coaches that we trust and who will share our philosophy of how the game should be played. In saying that, you can’t always tick all the boxes and any experience for young players at this level will be really beneficial to their development. Hopefully, they will come back to us better players and closer to our first team.
“We have always got on well with Jamie and I regarded him highly as a team-mate and I know Jason felt the same. He has gone into management and done a terrific job at Welling over a long period of time. For someone so young, he has got good experience behind him and he likes his teams to play good football. It is a good link for us to have.”
Day, signed by former Cherries manager Mel Machin from Arsenal, guided Welling to the Conference South title last season.
