HARRY Arter believes fans have yet to see the best of him and he is vowing to remain grounded in a bid to ensure his promising Cherries career takes off.

The emerging talent was one of the stars of pre-season and defied the big leap from non-league to earn a place in Eddie Howe’s team at Charlton Athletic.

But the talented playmaker was substituted at the interval on his league debut at The Valley when Cherries changed formation, and he was on the bench at Southampton on Tuesday.

Arter could feature against Peterborough United today (3pm) but is fully prepared to bide his time as he looks to challenge for one of the hotly-contested places in Cherries’ midfield.

He told the Echo: “The difference in the level is massive. I’m a League One player now and if I have to be a bit more patient to get in the team, then I will be.

“I’m not going to start moaning. I’m really happy to be here and whatever Eddie thinks I need to work on, I’m going to try to work as hard as I can on it. Hopefully, I will get my rewards.

“Eddie has told me certain areas I need to improve and every single player has got aspects of their game they need to improve, even the top players.

“At the moment, if I have to come off the bench, I’m more than happy to do that.”

Arter’s early Cherries performances generated plenty of discussion among fans, but despite impressing during the early stages of his Cherries career and earning plaudits from supporters, the 20-year-old intends to continue his hard work in an attempt to build on what has been a positive start.

“It’s nice for people to give you compliments,” added Arter. “But things like that can’t go to your head.

“I know there’s more to come from me so I’m just going to get my head down.

“Hopefully, they will see even more of a better side of me.”
