AFC Bournemouth: Four-midable Kermorgant leads Cherries' rout

EDDIE Howe declared himself a contented manager after watching Cherries make hay in the Dorset sunshine yesterday.

Howe’s men turned on the style in the county town, leaving opposite number Phil Simkin to magnanimously concede Cherries had handed out a “footballing lesson”.

Yann Kermorgant’s four-timer led the rout of the Southern Premier League outfit as Cherries created a wave of goalscoring opportunities throughout this pre-season friendly.

And but for the woodwork and the heroics of Dorchester goalkeepers Alan Walker-Harris and Shane Murphy, it could have been embarrassing for the hosts.

“It was a good work-out for us, good from all perspectives,” said Howe. “Even though it was quite an easy afternoon in terms of the scoreline, I thought the attitude and application were excellent. The lads didn’t let up and wanted more goals. That was a very pleasing sign.”

Harry Arter opened the floodgates after two minutes when he drilled an unstoppable drive past Walker-Harris from just inside the 18-yard box.

Arter then rattled the crossbar after being teed up by Ryan Fraser’s clever pass before Walker-Harris saved from point-blank range after Shaun MacDonald had taken aim.

Kermorgant’s sublime 20-yarder doubled Cherries’ lead in the 13th minute and the lively Matt Ritchie added a third soon after when he guided an Ian Harte cross into the bottom corner.

Ritchie poked home the rebound after Dan Gosling’s shot had been cleared off the line by Nathan Walker, the big defender then presenting Kermorgant with the chance to score from the penalty spot after handling.

The pick of Kermorgant’s treble saw him rifle a delightful volley past Walker-Harris following a precision cross from Ritchie before Brett Pitman netted twice as Cherries reached the break eight goals to the good.

Howe said: “Yann is a class act and took his goals very well. He has come back looking fit and, with his technical qualities, hopefully it is going to be a big season for him. We need goals and goalscorers, attacking and creative players are very important to any team.

“We believe we have a good mix of strikers. They are all different and all offer the team something special. I thought all the wide players did very well.”

Kermorgant curled a 49th-minute free-kick into the top corner before Callum Wilson, one of seven changes, opened his Cherries goal account with a close-range finish on 64 minutes and Ben Whitfield completed the scoring two minutes from time.

Howe added: “It was good to see Callum get off the mark. He was in the right place and finished it well. Considering he has had a lot less training than the other guys, he looked really sharp.”

Cherries: Buchel (O’Flaherty, 70), Smith (McCarthy, h-t), Francis (Cargill, 66, Whitfield, 70), Cargill (Cook, 60), Harte (Daniels, 60), Fraser (Matthews, 27, McQuoid, 60), Gosling (O’Kane, 60), Arter (Pugh, 60), MacDonald (Pitman, 27), Ritchie (Stanislas, 60), Kermorgant (Wilson, 60).

Referee: Chris Powell (Poole).

Attendance: 913.

you can only beat what is is front of you, and it is nice to see a AFCB team being ruthless if we can take that attitude into out league matches we are always going to be in with a chance, it does look with some of the timing of substitutions that we may have picked up some injuries, this must be a worry for the management especially the two goalkeepers

Definitely agree with being ruthless! We will always create so many chances, but this season we need to be even more clinical on finishings games off! Game time is slowly increasing, so not sure if we need to worry about injuries! It will be good to see Camp back playing soon. In Eddie, we believe!

We will know more after Fridays game - but players gain confidence by scoring and the competition to keep your place doesn't allow any let ups! Was there the last time we scored 11, on a wet and muddy Dean Court pitch Big Mac scored 7, what would Ted and Phil cost now if they were in their prime - certainly the best strike pair to grace our pitch! If only they were young again!

Didn't Mac remove himself in apparent frustration at being unable to match Joe Payne's record mark of 10 for Luton? (Did he miss a penalty?) Quit while you're still ahead!
A remarkable day amongst many in those times; great to see things back on track with an equally devoted, skilled squad, and a strong and respected gaffer.
Maybe I should retire back 'home'?

Ted Macdougall scored 9 FACT. I have the Echo Sport front page from that game in this very room and the headline is "Record Mac: 9".

Just a plea for information, like the majority of Football Supporters I enjoy other sports and started watching Hampshire at that other great gift to the Town by the Cooper-Dean family , Dean Park ,at the time I started to watch the Cherries, as a boy, in the immediate Post War Period. Happily the future of Dean Court is looking good., not so sure about the Park though, it seems that quietly and in the shadows the ground is being closed and taken away from us. Three months ago , ambitious plans were put forward by several interested groups, since then silence. Now we have Park's comments that todays game may well be the penultimate game there for Dorset and learn that all the specatator seating has been removed, ominus signs. At the same time Web Sites of support groups are closed and the Echo is strangely silent !!

Lets hope both are ok, they're experienced enough for Eddie to take their word if they don't feel right, so don't blame him for not risking either in pre-season friendlies. On the plus side, Benji is getting a good bit of game time, which can only help him get better and give him more confidence if he is needed.
