Commentary By



We're into the fourth round and in the end, it was quite comfortable against the National League side.

Emi Marcondes has stolen the show with a superb hat-trick, our first hat-trick scored of the season!

He becomes the first Danish player to score a hat-trick in the competition since Niklas Bentdner for Arsenal in 2011.

We can be pleased with our night's work here at Huish Park and thank you for following us!


What a block by Camp!

And he celebrates it like it's a goal!

A long ball gets punted into the box and Nyland gets bundles over - it did look like a foul - but then the ball bounced to Reid in the box but somehow, Camp on all fours, got a touch away and it went to safety.

He celebrated like a champion after that!


Another great moment...

Brennan Camp has just come on for Ben Pearson here and it's his second appearance of the season, his first coming against Norwich City in the Carabao Cup.

Camp has been with the club since 2007 and is the grandson of the late Gerry Gow, who made more than 500 appearances for Bristol City, Manchester City, Rotherham United and Burnley. 

A nice moment!


Good defending by Yeovil

A good cross finds Lowe at the back post, he brings it down and looks set to apply the finish but for a good tackle.

7,818 (2030) is announced as the attendance - the highest crowd at Huish Park since 2018.


Our second change

Christian Saydee comes on as our second substitution, replacing Leif Davis.

Robbie Brady, who was playing right-wing, has moved to left-back and Jamal Lowe will play out wide.

Yeovil's final change comes as Dale Gorman is replaced by Rueben Reid. 


Changes for Yeovil

Matt Worthington and Joe Quigley are replaced by Sonny Blu Lo-Everton and Adi Yussuf.


Danish Delight!

Marcondes is the first Danish player to score a hat-trick in the FA Cup since Nicklas Bendtner in 2011!




Ibsen Rossi has to defend

It's an immediate attack from Yeovil as they try to get back into the game and a dangerous cross has to be turned behind by Ibsen Rossi at the near post.

The centre-back was on the stretch and did really well to avoid his own goal there!



A great moment for Emiliano Marcondes as he nets his hat-trick!

Good build-up play as Moriah-Welsh picks out Lowe in the box, he cuts inside and curls an effort at goal with his left foot.

Barnes makes a decent save but it lands at Marcondes' feet and he can't miss.

Love that!


A change for Yeovil Town

Charlie Wakefield comes on for Morgan Williams for the hosts. 



I can't talk about how good that is by Mepham!

Dazzling feet in the middle of the park as he drives forward, beating a couple of Yeovil players in the process, before finding Lowe in the box.

The forward takes a touch and fires at goal but Barnes has narrowed the angle and deflects it behind. Good save.


First change for Bournemouth

Robbie Brady comes in for Jaidon Anthony, who assisted the second goal today.

Meanwhile, Ben Pearson receives a yellow card for an off-the-ball incident. 


Another stoppage

This time as Marcondes comes off worse in a 50-50 in midfield. He's good to continue again. 


Battling away!


The game is a bit stop-start

The game following that goal by Yeovil has become a bit stop-start.

A couple of Yeovil players have required treatment which has brought the tempo of the action right down.

The atmosphere is still excellent, both in the away end and the home sections. 


A break in play

Marcondes takes a whack off the ball and needs treatment, allowing the Cherries the chance to take the sting out of the game after that goal.

It was an unfortunate way to concede but they've got to ensure they clear their heads as soon as possible and keep doing what they did so well in the first half.

Emi is good to continue thankfully too.


GOAL - Yeovil

The home side have one back.

Nyland is closed down on the ball and the tackle falls at the feet of Joe Quigley, who applies the finish. 


We're back underway

The home side kick us off in the second half.

Same again, Cherries!


A brace so far!

What a performance it has been by Emiliano Marcondes so far.

His movement has been excellent and both his goals have come from runs off the defenders.

He's also found the bottom corner on both times he's had a chance to shoot. Excellent.


That first half

FA Cup games against non-league teams can prove very tricky encounters, and this one is definitely not over, but Parker will be pleased so far.

We've controlled the ball well and while we haven't created lots of chances, Marcondes has finished off his two opportunities well.

Yeovil look solid, they've got a dangerous long throw from Tom Knowles who has looked to get it in at various opportunities, but Nyland hasn't really been threatened yet.

Still a long way to go and things could change very quickly but a good job so far.



That's the break and the Cherries are in control at Huish Park.

The home side have given it a go but Scott Parker's team have managed the first half well and Emiliano Marcondes has netted two good goals.

So far, so good.


Two minutes added on



That's the second for the Cherries and the second for Emiliano Marcondes!

The Cherries were really patient on the ball, moving it quickly and waiting for their moment to pick a pass.

Anthony picks it perfectly, drifting inside and finding Marcondes making another excellent run in the box.

He then picks out the bottom corner with a superb low finish. 


A shot of Marcondes' opener


Another yellow for Yeovil

A third card of the match for the home team as Josh Staunton picks up a booking for a foul on Davis. 


Yeovil fire over

The Cherries have looked largely very settled on the ball but Ibsen Rossi and Davis are expecting a ball to roll off the left side of the pitch, and it doesn't.

That gives Yeovil the spark to press high and they win the ball at the edge of the box, Knowles immediately taking aim at goal.

His effort is high and wide and doesn't worry Nyland, but sparks up the home support. 


Marcondes movement excellent

The Danish midfielder is impressing today, partly because of the work he is doing off-the-ball.

He's constantly making runs from midfield, trying to get beyond the defence - where the opener came from.

This time he's pulled back by Gorman, winning a free-kick. The Yeovil man is already on a yellow so will need to be careful.

The free-kick doesn't come to anything of note.


On his debut



Jamal Lowe almost doubles the lead!

Rogers puts a defender under pressure and his pass is intercepted by Lowe, who drives at the defence and tries to pick out the far corner with a curling effort. It's deflected inches wide.

From the resulting corner, Anthony's deep cross evades Barnes in goal and crashes off the inside of the post. 



There's the breakthrough!

Mepham clips a really nice ball over the top to Marcondes, who has made a good run between the defenders.

He brings the ball down nicely, shifts the ball onto his right foot and passes the ball into the right corner.

A really well taken goal. 


Good goalkeeping by Nyland

The Cherries are dominating the ball but the early threats to goal have come from the home team.

They win a corner as Ibsen Rossi deflects a pass out of play and a left-footed cross is whipped into the middle.

Yeovil have put a crowd of men around Nyland, but the Norway number one gathers well and even starts a counter attack with a good throw.

Moriah-Welsh rides a challenge on the right as he looks to break away but a back-up defender does well and brings the move to a halt. 


Gorman drives over

Yeovil win a free-kick at the edge of the box following a foul from Lowe.

Gorman lines up the effort, smashing the ball with his laces and aiming it towards the far top corner.

He hits it well and it's moving in the air, but it never threatens Nyland and flies over the bar. 


Wet, wet, wet


Cherries starting to exert control

The game started in a bit of a frantic manner, the weather conditions exasperating it as neither side could get settled.

However, the Cherries have started get on the ball and dominate possession.

Yeovil are given a second yellow card as Matt Worthington brings down Lowe, who was driving forward. 


Gorman booked

That's a very heavy challenge by Yeovil's Dale Gorman.

The Northern Irish midfielder crashes into Morgan Rogers, late and in a dangerous fashion and is fortunate to only see a yellow card.

After a period of treatment, Rogers is okay to continue. 



Jamal Lowe kicks us off here at Huish Park and Moriah-Welsh gets an early touch of the ball.

He's starting at right back as we line-up in our usual 4-3-3 shape.



Chris Mepham leads out the Cherries at Huish Park, greeted by a chorus of boos from the home support but a great ovation from the travelling fans.

We're in our home kit as Yeovil wear their famous green and white hoops. 


A new outfit for the Gaffer


The teams head in

We're not far away from kick-off in this FA Cup clash and both teams return to the tunnel.

Scott Parker will give a final team talk before the action gets underway.

The PA announcer is going around the ground getting each stand to make some noise, it's an impressive atmosphere here at Huish Park.


Fun fact

A fun fact courtesy of Mark Mitchener - Nathan Moriah-Welsh becomes the first player to start an AFC Bournemouth game wearing the number 39 shirt.

History maker!


Warm-ups underway!


Gidaree makes bench debut

We caught up with Tarik Gidaree recently and he talked about his desire to make his mark in the first team, having been injured as a number of his teammates impressed in pre-season.

He said:  "I missed the first three months of the season, I had a piece of ingrown bone in my hip that needed to be removed and it all went successfully, finished my rehab and got back within three to four months post-surgery."

“It took back a little bit of time to get back to where I was last season but I’m here now and I feel that I’m in a better position.”

Gidaree has impressed on his appearances for the development squad this season and netted his maiden goal in the 7-0 thrashing of Cowes Sports in the Hampshire Senior Cup.

The 18-year-old has trained with the first team on a number of occasions this season and is determined to soak up every piece of information he can.

He revealed: “Getting called up to train with the first team has been great, to see the levels and where the first team players are is what I aspire to get to.

“The intensity, the small details are so much finer, and these are things that I’ve picked up on in the recent weeks and hopefully I can implement in games.”


Familiar faces

There are two former AFC Bournemouth players in the squad for the home team.

Matt Worthington was the first academy graduate to play for the Cherries in the Premier League, and starts today.

Joe Quigley also starts, having scored seven goals in 19 matches this season for the Glovers.


Getting to know Nathan Moriah-Welsh

A debutant in the first team this evening, here's a little bit to get to know Nathan Moriah-Welsh:

Born in Chelsea, Nathan Moriah-Welsh started playing football for Old Isleworthians in London before being spotted by Chelsea.

Following spells with Brentford and Reading, he joined the Cherries in the summer of 2018 and played his part as they reached the quarter-final of the FA Youth Cup in 2018/19.

Moriah-Welsh made his debut for the under-21s in April 2019 and has also trained with the first team and was called up to be a substitute for the first team in their Emirates FA Cup quarter-final tie with Southampton in March 2021.

He would also go on to make his international debut for Guyana later that month in a 4-0 victory over Bahamas in a World Cup qualifier and made his first start for his nation against Guatemala in a Gold Cup qualifier in April.

The central midfielder signed a new contract in August 2021 and was part of the club’s preseason trip to Spain. He has also featured on several occasions for the first team as an unused substitute.



Here's how we line-up for this evening's game with Yeovil Town!

There's a professional debut for Nathan Moriah-Welsh and Tarik Gidaree is on the bench for the first time. 


Our record v Yeovil Town

The last meeting between the two teams came in 2014, with both sides battling it out in the Championship!

It's been a very different journey for the two teams since as the Cherries won promotion to the Premier League and stayed there for five seasons, while Yeovil now take part in the National League.

Kieffer Moore opened the scoring midway through the first half before Ryan Fraser equalised in the second half.

The Cherries have the upper hand in the head to head figures, winning ten of our 19 meetings. Yeovil have won four.

Nonetheless, Yeovil are famous for their giant-killings in the Cup and will no doubt prove a real challenge for the Cherries today.


Welcome to our live coverage!

It's the first game of 2022 for AFC Bournemouth!

The Cherries are on the road in the FA Cup third round as we make the trip to Yeovil Town.

The game gets started at 5.45pm and we'll be bringing you updates throughout the evening.
