AFC Bournemouth: Cherries boss Eddie Howe has no plans to send Cargill on loan

BOSS Eddie Howe insists he has no immediate plans to loan out Baily Cargill and says the teenager could start the season as Cherries’ third-choice central defender.

Cargill, a product of the club’s youth set up, has been elevated permanently to the first-team ranks after impressing Howe during his time in the development squad.

The 19-year-old last season enjoyed fruitful loan spells in the Conference with Welling and at Torquay, winning his Football League debut for the Gulls in April.

Cargill, released by Southampton as a 12-year-old, has been sharing the defensive duties with Tommy Elphick and Steve Cook in pre-season and will again feature when Cherries visit Dorchester tomorrow (3pm).

And with Elliott Ward on the road to recovery having had knee surgery at the end of last season, Cargill could be in the frame for a place in the Cherries squad for their Championship opener at Huddersfield.

Howe, who rewarded Cargill with a two-and-a-half year contract in November, told the Daily Echo: “I said to Baily at the end of last season to come back as if he wanted to get into my first team. I don’t want people to aim to be in the development squad, I want all the young pros to try to be with us.

“There are limited spaces because of the number of bodies we have but, if someone proves they are good enough to be with us they will and Baily has proved that this pre-season. He has been excellent.

“The biggest compliment I can pay him so far is that he looks like he should be part of our squad. He hasn’t looked out of place in one training session.

“He is very composed on the ball, he is technically very good and he reads the game well for such a young player. I think he has a bright future ahead of him, providing he continues to keep the attitude he has shown.”

Asked whether another loan spell could be on the horizon for Cargill, Howe replied: “He is not going anywhere at the moment because our fit centre-halves are Steve Cook and Tommy Elphick and, as we speak, Baily is next in line.

“Hopefully, Elliott Ward will regain his fitness soon and we will have four very good centre-halves. In terms of loan periods for Baily, it is not high on my agenda to see him go out at this moment in time.”

Goalkeeper Lee Camp could be handed his first taste of match action against Dorchester after being given the all-clear to resume training earlier this week having missed the first two friendlies due to a minor thigh injury.

New signings Junior Stanislas and Callum Wilson could also feature after sitting out Monday’s victory at Eastleigh as a precaution.

Meanwhile, Cherries are unlikely to pursue their interest in striker Rakish Bingham who joined the club during the training camp in Austria and lined up in the friendly against FC Copenhagen.

Sounds like Baily is coming on well, I just hope the Saints don't have a 25% sell on clause on him!?

Other news seen around, seems like we have an interest in Baudry again and Jack Collinson is training with QPR, though he has injury 'problems'.

Took a trip to Brighton yesterday, well the Brighton Argus to be exact and (apart from one t0ss£er who got told by all) a very welcoming bunch they were too. Seems like they're looking at Stephen Henderson at the moment, also they have a very topical name for the SCGs.....
.......Scousehampton

Almost forgot Eastleigh beat Swindle 2-0 last night, hee-hee-hee, good on the Spitfires!!! I have feeling it's going to be a VERY good weekend!

I drove past the Amex Stadium a couple of days ago for the first time, looks very impressive and much more convenient to get to than the Withdean or Goldstone Ground was. Lets have a good work out at Dorchester tomorrow and good on Baily for showing a great attitude, always good to see a player come through the ranks.

It's good to see another of Joe's lads coming through and wish him well, nothing like having local ladssgood enough to compete for a place in the team. People forgot I think what a "shoe string" operation Joe ran so successfully and his "eye" for latent talent missed by others. Running a Youth Development programme for a small Club is so difficult, the scales are weighted in favour of the Premiership Clubs who under the new rules can plunder at will, no more 25% sell on fees!! just cost repayed. Our neighbours , who do have a great Academy and do everthing well are in Premiership terms a "small" club, they are targetted too, for players and staff and could easily lose another 3 players before the Season starts. We have a great Management team, fortunately with strong links to the area and a love of the Club - long may that last.

Hi SOC I agree with what you say about Joe Roach however it pains me to say Baily came from the Scummers having been released and brooks was in charge then.

I don't think it matters who was in charge when any boys come to the club if they come through the youth system they should all be classed as bmth boys I remember this being said when Carmichael came through then Mathews all the coaches in the system play a part in their development as well as whoever is in charge of the youth and they should all be thanked for the work they do and use these boys as an example for the future stars we can produce.

Sadly there is always one dirty a***d seagull trying to $hit on you from a great height before flying away.... on the whole a decent bunch,( Brighton.)
Prefer to have Campie between the sticks over Henderson any day.
Wishing Cargill all the very best for the coming season, hopfully just the first of many to come off the Roach/Fletch conveyor belt.
The Robins shot down by Spitfires... That's cruel, do you think the RSPB will get involved.!!!!
Aye oop, only 3 weeks t'ut Yorkshire excursion.

Great news about another young lad coming through the ranks.
This is what we want to see year on year and if anyone knows how to spot a youngster who will make it, Eddy does.

One apprentice a year would and should be our objective, at least.

Whilst I do believe that it matters a great deal just who runs the Youth Sysytem and we have in Joe a coach rated in the top three in the UK, Southampton's Management were "poached" and their new Employer is producing good results and players now. It has to be a team effort - supported by the Management of the Club - Arsene Wenger for an example takes a great interest in the Club's Youth Development and players like Wiltshire, Walcott and Ramsey ( the latter two by the courtesay of the Saints) are amongst the best there are, Ramsey when fit is World Class. Eddie expects and needs the kids to come through and both Marsh and Carmicheal are close to just doing that. As others have said the man just to see that happens.
