AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers has signed a new five-year deal with the club.

The Republic of Ireland international’s new contract means he will remain at Vitality Stadium until the summer of 2027.

Travers joined the club’s academy as a 17-year-old in 2016 and has since established himself as a key component of Scott Parker’s side.

Last season, the Irishman was in standout form as the club earned promotion to the Premier League, winning the Supporters Player of the Season, Vice Presidents Player of the Season and the Daily Echo’s Micky Cave award.

On top of this, he earned the prestigious EFL Golden Glove for the Sky Bet Championship, handed out to the goalkeeper with the highest number of clean sheets in the league.

AFC Bournemouth chief executive Neill Blake told afcb.co.uk: “We are delighted to secure Mark’s services on a long-term contract.

“Last season he was a key part of the club’s promotion to the Premier League and has continued his impressive growth and development.

“As a club, we’re pleased to provide a pathway for our academy players and Mark is a great example of not only the high standard of coaching across the club but of him having the mentality to take his opportunities when they’ve arisen.

“Hopefully Mark can continue to flourish and keep up his impressive progression in the Premier League.”
