Junior Cherries

Academy masterclass enjoyed by Junior Cherries


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Junior Cherries have been back on Zoom to enjoy the latest masterclass in our series. 

Academy manager, Joe Roach, and assistant academy manager, Sam Gisborne, spent Thursday afternoon chatting to 16 young fans about life in the youth setup. 

They spoke about their careers to date and experiences within the game, as well as offering valuable advice to those wishing to make it as a professional footballer. 

A question-and-answer session took place, with some brilliant questions being asked, while there was also a quiz about the club's academy that was held at the end. 

The academy masterclass follows on from a women in sport edition, which took place via Zoom just over a month ago. 

Members of the analysts department and sports science team have also given up time to Junior Cherries over the last 12 months to offer a special insight into life at a football club.
