Charlie Seaman's spectacular free kick ensures Cherries' youngsters win in Premier League Cup at Vitality Stadium.

Charlie Seaman’s spectacular free kick against West Brom ensured AFC Bournemouth’s Under-21s remained in pole position to progress from Group C in the Premier League Cup.

In a game played in terrible conditions at Vitality Stadium on Friday evening, Seaman crashed a set piece from 25 yards in off the crossbar to secure victory.

The young Cherries, under the guidance of Shaun Cooper for the first time, initially fell behind.

Albion’s Callum Morton was alert to convert a loose ball from the edge of the area, after Aaron Ramsdale had initially raced out of his goal to save well from Jonathan Leko.

On the half-hour mark the Cherries levelled through Gavin Kilkenny, who found space on the edge of the area before skipping away from a couple of defenders and firing low across the goalkeeper and into the far corner.

Seaman’s moment of brilliance arrived shortly before the interval, with his dipping free kick leaving Baggies goalkeeper Alex Palmer with no chance at all.

Despite the wind and rain swirling around the Vitality Stadium throughout the course of the evening, both sides persisted in attempting to pass and move the ball.

The Cherries came close to adding to their lead in the second period, with Jack Simpson and Alex Dobre both coming close.

The game also saw Tyrone Mings complete the full 90 minutes, whilst Matt Butcher made his first appearance following a lengthy injury lay off.

Cooper’s youngsters are next in competitive action away at Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday 2nd December.
