Dragons date for Cherries in cup


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth will do battle with seven-time winners Basingstoke Town in the second round of the Hampshire Senior Cup.

The Cherries, beaten on penalties by Basingstoke in the 2017 final at St Mary’s, are due to meet the Dragons during week commencing 16th September.

Although Shaun Cooper’s under-21s came out of the hat first in the draw, the Cherries have always surrendered home advantage in the competition.

Basingstoke, relegated to Southern League Division One South on the final day of last season, are currently ground-sharing with Winchester City ahead of moving into a new stadium at Winklebury.

Managed by Martin Kuhl – who made more than 470 appearances in the Football League for Birmingham, Sheffield United, Watford, Portsmouth, Derby, Notts County and Bristol City – Basingstoke’s defeat by Taunton in April was their last game at the Camrose Ground, their home for 74 years.

Beaten quarter-finalists last season, the Cherries last lifted the Hampshire Senior Cup when their reserves triumphed 2-1 against Basingstoke in 1989.

A Cherries team including newly-crowned Player of the Year Ryan Fraser last reached the final in 2013 when they went down 3-2 to Alresford Town at Vitality Stadium.

Basingstoke lost out 2-1 to Havant & Waterlooville in last season’s final at Eastleigh’s Silverlake Stadium.
