Daniels' City screamer


The Cherries will kick off their Premier League campaign against Aston Villa – their opponents in their first top-flight encounter in 2015.

On a baking hot day at Vitality Stadium almost seven years ago, Rudy Gestede spoiled the party when he scored the only goal in the second half.

However, Eddie Howe’s team went on to upset the odds by finishing 16th in their first season in the Premier League with Villa going down with Norwich and Newcastle.


The Cherries will face former boss Eddie Howe and a host of ex-players and staff when they meet Newcastle at St James’ Park on Saturday 17th September.

Howe led the Cherries during five seasons in the Premier League and his current backroom staff includes Jason Tindall, Stephen Purches, Graeme Jones, Simon Weatherstone and Dan Hodges.

Callum Wilson, Ryan Fraser and Matt Ritchie, who served the Cherries during their previous spell in the top flight, are all members of the Newcastle squad.

The Cherries won their first two games in the Premier League at St James’ Park, the second victory coming thanks to a dramatic headed goal from Steve Cook in the last minute in November 2017.

The return fixture at St Mary’s Stadium, where the Cherries recorded a memorable 3-1 win in September 2019, takes place on Wednesday 26th April.

Superb Saints victory


Head coach Parker will face former club Fulham at Vitality Stadium on Saturday 1st April before taking his squad to Leicester a week later on Easter Saturday.

The Foxes were crowned Premier League champions in 2015/16 with a goal from Marc Pugh earning the Cherries victory against them the following season at Vitality Stadium.


The Cherries face two former Premier League champions in their final four games, Parker’s team hosting Chelsea and Manchester United.

A trip to Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park on Saturday 13th May is sandwiched between Chelsea and United visiting Vitality Stadium in the last month of the season.

And on the final day of the campaign – Sunday 28th May – the Cherries will bring down the curtain on the season with a trip to Everton.

Meanwhile, the draw for the first round of the Carabao Cup will take place on 23rd June with the Cherries entering the competition in the second round.

All fixtures are subject to change.
