Manager Paul Groves has confirmed that the club have withdrawn from the Football Combination league but added that he will look to arrange regular reserve team friendlies throughout next season.
The Cherries were forced into fielding a number of youthful second string line-ups at the beginning of the season, while the erratic nature of the fixtures didn't work to the advantage of players recovering from injury later on in the campaign.
After taking temporary charge Groves and assistant Shaun Brooks organised a string of reserve team friendlies which provided the likes of Joe Partington and Stephane Zubar with valuable playing time before their returns to first team action.
"There's going to be a need for the players who aren't involved in the first team to be playing football and we need to make sure they're being kept in good condition," Groves said.
"In the first month of the season there will be a lot of games and we may look to rotate the squad or give opportunities to individuals, but after that there will be players who don't play and that's the nature of football."
Groves has introduced a development squad to work alongside the first team, and the 46-year-old believes it will provide a smoother transition from youth team football to the men's game.
He explained, "The development squad bridges the gap between the youth team and the first team. We recognise that the gap between the two has been extended this year in terms of the ability and ambition in the first team, and sometimes the players need a little bit of time to allow their bodies to adapt to the physical demands and the pace the first team play at.
"They will look to be playing non-league opposition at times, development groups at other professional clubs and it gives them the opportunity to develop a bit more understanding and experience."
Groves, who started last season as youth team manager, plans to keep tabs on the club's youngsters, including the four players offered professional contracts last month, over the course of the campaign.
"I think they have done very well, considering where they were at the start of the season to where they are now," he said. "They've done extremely well but there's still a long way to go, they need to keep fighting, stay hungry and looking to improve."
