JASON Tindall was pleased to provide an opportunity to another Cherries academy graduate by handing Will Dennis his first-team debut on Saturday.

The 20-year-old took the gloves and helped the hosts to a 4-1 FA Cup victory over League Two Oldham Athletic at Vitality Stadium.

Dennis produced an important early stop to keep the Latics at bay, but was penalised for tripping Davis Keillor-Dunn in the penalty area just before half-time.

Dylan Bahamboula stepped up and made no mistake from the spot, but Dennis was not beaten again as Cherries eased to victory in the second half.

Asked for his assessment of the debut display of the goalkeeper, Tindall told the Daily Echo: "Really good. He’s another young player that’s come through the system that has made his debut for the football club.

"I think that’s really good for the club. I think it’s testament to Neil Moss and his goalkeeping team for all the great work that they’ve done with the goalkeepers that we’ve had here at the football club, for Will to come in and deliver, in my opinion, a real comfortable, solid performance.

"I felt he was a little bit unfortunate with the penalty. It happens, but I felt we should’ve done better in the build-up to the penalty.

"I was really pleased with his performance."
