RISING star Jaidon Anthony declared he was happy with his season’s work at Cherries but was looking to “push on” with the club next campaign.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed a memorable few days in Cherries colours.

Having scored for the under-21s in the 2-0 Central League Cup final win over Carlisle at St George’s Park last week, Anthony played 23 minutes for the club’s first team at Wycombe on Saturday.

The former Arsenal youngster could also feature for the Dorset club when they take on Eastleigh in the Hampshire Senior Cup final at Snows Stadium, Totton, tomorrow.

Anthony made his first-team debut at Cherries this season and penned a fresh contract in December.

Assessing his campaign as a whole, the London-born forward told the Daily Echo: “It’s definitely been a good year – one I have learned a lot in.

“Looking back, if I would have been told this is how the season would have went at the start of the season – I would have been happy with that.

“It’s definitely been a good year and hopefully I can continue it to the end of the season and push on next year.”

Anthony came off the bench to replace Junior Stanislas against the Chairboys at the weekend but could not prevent a 1-0 defeat for Jonathan Woodgate’s side.

“It’s always nice to get on the pitch, definitely. It’s what you dream of, playing for the first team, so it was nice to get on,” he said.

“To be honest, you are always hoping and you are ready to come on.

“Saturday was no different, he made a lot of changes and I was just waiting for my opportunity and luckily it came.

“I thought I did okay. It’s disappointing we didn’t get the win.”
