AFC Bournemouth’s Community Sports Trust works with Bournemouth University’s men’s and women’s football teams.
The Trust celebrated a successful end to the first season coaching the university’s sides, with two of its teams winning promotion in the 2013/14 season.
The men’s first team secured top spot in their division with a 5-0 away victory against University of Winchester to claim the BUCS Western 2A League title.
Meanwhile, the men’s third team finished the season with a top of the table clash against University of Bath and claimed a 2-1 away victory – with the winning goal scored in the last few moments of the game.
They too, claimed their division title with the win and are promoted as a result.
“We have enjoyed working with the players on a weekly basis,” head of the Community Sports Trust Steve Cuss said.
“The effort and commitment shown by all has very evident and the two winning teams are reward for the hard work of the players throughout the season.”
The Trust’s contribution to the football teams’ success was also highlighted, as the continuing link between Bournemouth University and AFC Bournemouth provides an opportunity for students to receive a professional level of coaching during their time at university.
