JASON Tindall heaped praise on “clinical” Cherries’ five-goal display at West Ham and added: “The attitude and togetherness of the group was excellent.”

The Dorset club ended their short pre-season schedule in style with a 5-3 victory over the Irons at London Stadium.

Goals from Arnaut Danjuma, Dominic Solanke, Dan Gosling, Adam Smith and youngster Jaidon Anthony ensured Cherries dished out some punishment to David Moyes’s men in the capital.

Jarrod Bowen netted twice for West Ham in the first half.

Cherries also landed a pre-season trophy for their exploits, lifting the Betway Cup after the success.

Tindall told the Daily Echo: “I thought it was a very good performance. The most pleasing thing for me was, first and foremost, the attitude and togetherness of the group was excellent.

“And to see the hard work that has been going on, on the training ground come out, and deliver the kind of performance that we did today.

“This was a place we came last season and lost 4-0.

“They are a very strong side, a Premier League side, so to come here and score five goals in a friendly, or any kind of game, is a great achievement.

“I’m delighted with how clinical we were in front of goal but, overall, just really pleased with the team performance.”

Asked whether it was nice to see some smiling faces with a trophy after full-time, the boss replied: “Yeah of course. It’s always nice to win a trophy.

“You want to win football matches, whether it be pre-season or not.

“With a trophy at stake, it was always nice to make sure we were the ones that were lifting it at the end of the game.

“But that wasn’t the most important thing. The most important thing was coming through the game physically with no injuries, delivering the performance we had asked and to see the work that has been done on the training ground.”

Cherries will host Blackburn Rovers in their Championship opener a week today.
