Let's get behind the Cherries, says mayor of Bournemouth
2:00pm Tuesday 1st January 2013 in News
THE mayor of Bournemouth has urged the town to get behind its football team after the Cherries’ incredible unbeaten run.
Cllr Phil Stanley-Watts said he would like to organise an open-top bus tour for the team at the end of the season. AFC Bournemouth are in the playoff zone after notching up their 15th successive win on Saturday.
Cllr Stanley-Watts, a keen sports fan, said: “I’d like to get the whole of Dorset behind the team because they’re doing so well.”
He said an open top bus tour could be a good way for the town to congratulate the team, however their promotion efforts turn out.
“It would also welcome the manager, Eddie Howe, back to the club. He’s doing a brilliant job. I did tell them that when they had a reception on December 14,” Cllr Stanley-Watts said.
