AFC Bournemouth were represented at the inaugural ePremier League final event at the Gfinity Arena in London throughout the week.
The two-day event followed the online qualifiers and regional club play-offs that were held at club stadiums and training grounds throughout February.
Craig John-Clement (PS4) and Marc Marley (Xbox) were both present to represent AFC Bournemouth at the showpiece event, which was aired live on Sky Sports television, EA Sports’ Twitch channel and other online platforms.
The Cherries pair initially impressed in their respective groups.
After two wins and two defeats, Craig missed out on the knockout stages via the head to head ruling in a group containing Chelsea, Watford, Leicester City and Cardiff City.
Marc meanwhile was able to progress from a group containing Crystal Palace, Brighton, Tottenham and West Ham United, winning three of his four games.
It was at the quarter-final stage where Marc was eliminated from the competition, falling to a cruel 6-4 aggregate defeat against Manchester United.
“It was a huge honour to represent AFC Bournemouth in the ePremier League,” Marc told afcb.co.uk after the event.
“I was proud to have made it to the quarter-finals, even though I felt I could have gone a little further in the competition. I just didn’t have that luck that you sometimes need in the games.”
Craig added: “Being a local lad, it was a nice feeling to be wearing the Bournemouth shirt at this event. I felt I played okay, but I was disappointed to have not made it out of my group.
“It was a new experience for me to have played against some of the best gamers and pro players. Hopefully I can learn and improve from this experience.”
From the Xbox side of the competition Liverpool’s F2Tekkz was the winner of the cross-console grand final, beating Manchester United’s KyleLeese_ 6-2 on aggregate.
