CHARLIE Hembrey! Eddie Richardson! Charlie Stevenson! Jack Spicer! Jumbo Hookey! Mr C Nutt – can you hear me, Mr C Nutt! Your boys did you proud! Your boys did you proud!

When a dozen enthusiasts got together to form Boscombe FC in 1899, little did they know that, 116 years later, their club would be the subject of one of the most remarkable stories in English football history.

Following that first informal gathering in Gladstone Road, Mr Nutt was voted in as president when officers were elected at a public meeting, held in the Colonnade restaurant.

Messrs Hembrey, Richardson, Stevenson, Spicer and Hookey were all members of the first Boscombe team to compete in the Bournemouth and District Junior League.

The trophy cabinet bulged in the formative years, starting with the Hampshire Junior Cup and the Pokesdown Tournament Cup before the decision was made to take the plunge and seek election to the Football League.

At a subsequent shareholders’ meeting, a choice of new names was among the topics for discussion.

Bournemouth United and Bournemouth County were both discarded in favour of Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic, while directors later approved a new nickname – the Cherries.

The club’s baptism came in Division Three (South) in 1923. And, after 3,827 games and 92 years, a seventh promotion should finally be confirmed at Charlton on Saturday, ending Cherries’ long stay in the Football League.

But for a dramatic goal swing, Eddie Howe’s class of 2015 will next season take their place alongside the Premier League big boys.

Jubilant and emotional scenes greeted the final whistle following victory over Bolton as league win number 1,443 in the biggest game in the club’s history capped a truly memorable night.

With two administrations in the past 18 years and four relegations since joining the Football League, there have been many a dark day for Cherries followers down the years.

In recent times, however, the trend has been bucked. The appointment of Howe and the arrival of wealthy Russian businessman Maxim Demin has been an alliance made in heaven.

Demin’s investment and Howe’s managerial acumen have resulted in Cherries hitting the jackpot, with the impending elevation to the top flight worth an estimated £120 million in their debut season.

Despite the immense pressure on Howe’s charges, they made light work of seeing off Bolton with their clinical finishing again coming to the fore.

Two goals in the space of five first-half minutes settled any nerves in the home camp before Callum Wilson’s finely-taken third put the game to bed, while Cherries could also afford to miss a penalty.

Cherries went close to making a dream start when Wilson seized on a slip by Tim Ream, only to see his close-range effort saved by goalkeeper Adam Bogdan after just 120 seconds.

The Hungarian stopper again came to Bolton’s rescue when he smothered a shot from Matt Ritchie after the Cherries winger had been teed up by Wilson, while Artur Boruc was also pressed into an early save, the Pole blocking from Adam Le Fondre.

Yann Kermorgant outjumped the Bolton defence to meet Harry Arter’s looping cross, only to see his header narrowly clear the crossbar after 22 minutes.

Wanderers were thankful to Bogdan for two stunning stops in quick succession, the goalkeeper saving one-handed low down after Ritchie had let fly with a rasping effort following a Wilson cut-back.

And just seconds later, Bogdan pulled off another top-drawer save to thwart Cherries when he pushed a thunderous 20-yarder from Kermorgant over the crossbar.

Skipper Tommy Elphick headed a Daniels corner over the top before Bogdan made a routine save from Arter after the midfielder had tried his luck from distance.

Bogdan was finally beaten six minutes before the break and it took a finely-executed 10th goal of the season from Pugh to give Cherries the lead.

The winger, picked out by Ritchie’s delicate cross, found some space at the far post but still had plenty to do from a tight angle. However, after working an opening by outwitting Liam Feeney with some nifty footwork, the Lancastrian finished into the top corner with his left foot.

Ritchie again raised the roof at Dean Court when he doubled Cherries’ lead just five minutes later, the 25-year-old Scottish international adding the gloss to a fine team goal.

Pugh and Wilson were both involved in the build up before Kermorgant laid the ball invitingly into Ritchie’s path before the winger buried a low, left-foot shot into the bottom corner.

Barry Bannan and Feeney both went close to halving the deficit before Wilson fired across the face of the goalmouth and a backtracking Bodgan was forced to tip Kermorgant’s sublime 45-yard lob over the crossbar.

Kermorgant wasted a glorious opportunity to put the game to bed when he skied a 70th-minute penalty after Wilson had been sent sprawling by Dervite, who received his marching orders for his indiscretion.

Ritchie’s venomous drive following a free-kick fizzed over the crossbar before Wilson had the final say when he put the finishing touches to victory with another majestic goal.

The striker, who was tightly marked, gave his man the slip with a superb turn and rifled his shot inside the post.

Matt Ritchie The architect of Cherries’ opening goal, as has so often been the case this season, the winger supplied the second as the hosts reached the break in the ascendancy.

Ritchie’s delicate cross paved the way for Marc Pugh to make it 1-0 before the Scottish international finished with unerring accuracy to double Cherries’ lead on the stroke of half-time.

The 25-year-old was a constant threat and was at the heart of numerous Cherries attacks, his assists giving Bolton plenty to ponder.

Andrew Surman and Harry Arter ensured Cherries would win hands-down the battle for central midfield, while Callum Wilson was almost unplayable at times up front.
