ON-LOAN full-back Ethan Laird revealed how he “didn’t stop screaming for days” after Cherries sealed promotion to the Premier League.

The Manchester United youngster was brought in at the start of January to help Scott Parker’s side return to England’s elite level, following an injury to Adam Smith.

Laird played six times in total for the Dorset club, totalling 374 minutes.

He was an unused substitute when Cherries’ recorded a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest to ensure second place in the division.

But that did not stop the 20-year-old fully enjoying the elation of achieving his goal of promotion with Parker’s troops.

He told the club website: “I didn’t stop screaming for days after the Forest game, I was keeping the vibes going in camp.

“I realise that there are repercussions to that – losing my voice!”

He added: “I think it’s been very easy to see our feelings about promotion, we’re all buzzing.

“We stuck to our task the whole season.

“Obviously, I came in January and I feel for the lads because they’ve been working their butts off since the start of the season and now we're at the promised land.”

Cherries finished the campaign on 88 points from 46 games, two behind champions Fulham.

Speaking about the pressure on the side to deliver promotion, Basingstoke-born Laird added: “Being here and experiencing a promotion, being in a Championship side, working for promotion, there’s a lot of pressure, a lot of things that come with it.

“But it’s all happy, happy feelings and we’re just going to keep doing what we do.

“Everyone’s happy, everyone’s buzzing, the fans are buzzing, the gaffer’s happy – I’m speechless.”
