Travers signs new long-term deal


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers has signed a new long-term deal to keep him at Vitality Stadium.

The teenage 'keeper joined the Cherries in the summer of 2016 after making a positive impression during a trial period with the club, since going on to appear regularly for the under-21s side, as well as training and travelling to matches with the first team.

Travers has also been recognised by his country, having appeared for the Republic of Ireland and under-18 and under-19 levels since joining the Cherries.

During a loan period at Weymouth last season, Travers made headlines by scoring on his debut, netting a winner from his own half to beat Bishop’s Stortford 3-2 in the Southern Premier League. 

"It's great for me, coming in as a 17-year-old was quite tough and getting settled in early doors," said Travers after penning his latest deal.

"I've really enjoyed my time here and to get the new deal is great for me and my family, I'm really looking forward to it.

"I want to have a few more successful loan periods, keep training hard in front of the first-team manager, keep improving as a player and working hard in the gym off the pitch to improve my strength. 

"As the time progresses I'll try and get ready for the highest place to play."
