Smith stars in Down Under-themed Matchday


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Cherries left-back Brad Smith faces your questions - as well as several Australia-themed enquiries - in Saturday's Crystal Palace programme.

So be it the danger of sharks when surfing, his thoughts on the recent Australian cricket controversy or the Socceroos' hopes for the upcoming World Cup, Smith reveals all; with the AFCB Sydney supporters club called upon to give the best questions to the Australia international.

Aside from our feature interview there is plenty more besides in the latest 100-page edition of Matchday, including:

  • After Lewis Cook's recent England debut, we look at other Cherries (including a certain Premier League manager...) who have won England honours at different age levels while playing for the club.
  • In our Extra Time pull-out, aimed for younger fans, there are quizzes, a full-size poster and star facts on two players who could line up at Vitality Stadium.
  • There are nine pages of features, comment and profiles on our south London visitors, including Eagles fan Kyle Hefford picking out one of his side's cult heroes.
  • Our seven-page history section contains record-breaking goals from Ted MacDougall, a former Cherries winger who locked horns with Pele and supporter Claire Stock who chooses her Fan's Favourites.
  • Tunnel supervisor and lifelong Cherries fan Gordon Wallis talks through his unique role at the club and how his matchday varies to everyone else at the club.

Plus all the news from the different teams and areas of AFC Bournemouth!

Copies of Matchday are available around Vitality Stadium and in the club Superstore ahead of kick-off, costing £3.50.
