Junior Cherries packed into Vitality Stadium for an exclusive event with our women's team earlier this week.
Steve Cuss' side, who have made an unbeaten start to their National League campaign, took to the pitch for an open training session, giving the next generation of supporters the opportunity to watch them.
The 90-minute session saw the squad put through their paces with possession and shooting drills, while there were also refreshments for all Junior Cherries in the concourses.
Young supporters had the opportunity to meet Cherry Bear, as well as win a selection of signed merchandise, with pitchside games and quizzes taking place throughout the evening.
Additionally, exclusive interviews took place with players Maisy Smith and Becki Bath in front of the crowd, while members of the squad were also in the Superstore for an hour before the session posing for photos.
After the event, manager Cuss spoke about its success and the opportunity his side had to train in front of supporters.
"It's been a great opportunity for the side and it's the first time we've ever done anything like this," he began.
"It can really help inspire the next generation of players and we have a lot of the girls teams here watching this evening.
"With it being Women's Football Weekend this week, it's been brilliant to profile the players at Vitality Stadium and give them this platform.
"We've got an exciting FA Cup game away to Bournemouth Sports on Sunday, so hopefully people will get behind us even more after this."
The club would like to extend its thanks to Junior Cherries charity partner, The Isabel Baker Foundation, who were in attendance at the event.
