Cook goes ultra-rare for Watford


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Lewis Cook wears the rarest AFC Bournemouth jersey yet as he talks about nearly having a career as a goalkeeper and using the large amount of experience he already has for a 22-year-old.

The midfielder joined MATCHDAY at Bad Hand Coffee in Bournemouth in the 1982/83 third shirt, worn, as far as we know, just once on the final day of the season as the Cherries narrowly lost away at Brentford.

As ever with cover stars, there is also a pull-out poster of Cook in the Extra Time section, the 16-page section for younger fans with quizzes, oppositions facts and even colouring in of the England midfielder.

Also in Sunday's edition, you'll find:

  • Former Cherries loanee Lewis Buxton talks through his role - then as a Sheffield Wednesday player - in settling the 2014/15 Championship title shootout between Bournemouth and Watford.
  • Commentator Kris Temple casts his eye back on 2019, picking out the highs and lows from another busy calendar year of following the Cherries.
  • Matchday reports from the first team's last two home games, complete with quotes and stats.
  • Mark Molesley is the subject of this weekend's Bourne Legacy, talking through his fantastic footballing story and becoming Eddie Howe's first signing.
  • After making his first-team debut, Alex Dobre speaks on becoming the first Romanian to pull on Cherries colours.

From the AFC Bournemouth Women's team to news from the community and the under-21 and under-18s, all the news from around Vitality Stadium is featured for the visit of the Hornets.

As ever, MATCHDAY costs £3.50 and is on sale around the ground in the build-up to the game, and you can also buy editions online here or download a digital version (here for iOS and here for Android) which is now compatible with screen readers.
