LEGENDS, the café housed at Cherries' Dean Court ground, will close for business on Friday, the club has announced.

An article posted on the official club website said the decision had been taken “reluctantly” following a review of the facilities at Goldsands Stadium.

Cherries chairman Jeff Mostyn said: “This was a decision we did not take lightly and it was made following a great deal of thought after a meeting with both Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall.

“We felt the space could be utilised to create a specifically designed facility to support the players and coaching staff. This will enhance first-team presentations and performance analysis.”
