Nathan Moriah-Welsh has been speaking with afcb.co.uk after playing his part in a big 4-1 win for the under-21s against Luton Town.

Taking place at a damp Canford Arena, the central-midfielder more than made his mark with a superb strike 12 minutes in to give the Cherries a two goal lead.

Following the full-time whistle, he talked us through it:

“We spoke before the game about getting into good spaces,” began Moriah-Welsh.

“Thankfully Gav [Kilkenny] gave me the ball and I was in a good area.

“Mikael [Ndjoli] told me yesterday to shoot if I had the chance so, when it came up, I gave it a go and it went in!

“Usually when I shoot like that, it doesn’t go in, so thankfully it did this time! Hopefully I can keep the goal-scoring up.

“It helped that we started strongly because we were 3-0 up in less than 20 minutes.

“We did have a little dip at the end of the half, but there were some positive moments against a good Luton side.”

Moriah-Welsh went on to cite his teammate, and housemate, Christian Saydee as being influential in the win.

The forward netted a brace, with Moriah-Welsh setting up the second after dribbling through the middle of the park past two Hatters defenders before playing him in.

“I live with Christian so we have that connection.

“If I can assist him or if he can assist me, it’s great. He’s a really good player and I like playing with him – I’m sure he will do well in the future.”

But it’s not just Saydee who the 18-year-old looks to, with senior members of the under-21s setting an example and catching the eye for Jason Tindall at Vitality Stadium.

“Nnamdi [Ofoborh] started out on loan and he did really well before coming back.

“Gav, Jaidon [Anthony] and JZ [Jordan Zemura] too, they’re all doing well.

“We all want to get there one day, hopefully at this club. We all want to prosper and be the best that we can be.

“For me, I just want to get as many goals and assists as possible and get my name out there. We all aspire to do that.”
