Feature: Treweek eager to pen her own chapter in club's history


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Having grown up watching AFC Bournemouth’s men’s team surge their way through the divisions, Amber Treweek’s full focus is now on writing her own chapter of club history.

A lifelong Cherries supporter, the Poole-born defender is eager to help elevate the club to the third tier of the women’s game by capping off an unbeaten league campaign

The situation for Treweek and her teammates is simple, beat league leaders Exeter City at Exwick Community Hub on Sunday (2pm kick-off) and the Women’s National League Division One South West title will be secured, as well as promotion.

Speaking ahead of the exciting league finale, 21-year-old Treweek told afcb.co.uk: “For me, there is no club like AFC Bournemouth.

“To be able to put on the shirt every weekend, it gives you that extra boost that you want to do well for your club.

“Quite frankly, whatever we do this season, if we set new records, that’s something I get to be a part of forever. To be able to do that with my childhood club, it’s absolutely amazing.

“All the promotions I have followed with the club, it would be amazing to have a first-hand experience of one.

“It is really exciting to have that opportunity coming into the last game with a lot riding on it and I believe in every single player we have in the squad that we can achieve that.

“Even on the first day of pre-season, meeting all the new girls, we were a team and we had the common goals of being in this position at this point of the season. Those common goals have really driven us to be where we are now.”

A Cherries mascot back in 2012, Treweek looked back on her fondest promotion memories – including the club’s famous win over Nottingham Forest two years ago this week.

“The most vivid one that comes to mind was when we last got promoted back up to the Premier League. Philip Billing’s pass to Kieffer Moore,” she added.

“I was living in America at that point and was actually watching it with my friends in the locker room after training, I just went absolutely crazy at that one!”

While her full focus is on taking centre stage with her teammates at Exeter this weekend, one of centre-back Treweek’s passions away from football is attending music concerts with her family.

Her and sister Jess, who she has also represented the Cherries alongside, have recently seen the likes of, Mika, Griff and James Blunt perform live – One Republic and Niall Horan are among her favourites.

Her extensive music knowledge, however, does not put her in charge of the playlist on a matchday.

“I don’t think anyone would really appreciate my music taste! I think Scads (goalkeeper Katie Scadding) is usually team DJ, as you could probably tell,” she chuckled.

“At the start of the season, they sent out a Spotify playlist to add our own songs. There are a few dodgy suggestions that everyone always skips!”

Being part of a team that wants to entertain, Treweek is determined to put in a pitch perfect performance at Exeter, to end the league campaign on the right note.

“It would be the cherry on top,” she said.  “We have taken every game one at a time and, as a team, we have performed really well across the whole of the season.

“We’ve come so far this season that we want to just have that final step and almost that final reward we have worked towards – but we know it’s not going to be an easy fight.

“They are a very dangerous team and we need to bring our A-game to beat them but I believe we have it in us.”
