AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth club captain Simon Francis reached an appearance milestone following the Cherries' recent outing against Newcastle United.

The game at St James' Park was Francis' 300th for the club in all competitions, dating back to when he first signed on loan in November 2011.

In the summer of 2012 Francis would join the club on a permanent basis from Charlton Athletic.

Since then, Francis has formed the cornerstone of the Cherries backline, helping propel the club through from League One through to the Premier League.

Here, afcb.co.uk looks back at a selection of the best photos from his time with the club so far.
