Gallery: Unbeaten Cherries pipped to National League title

AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth brought down the curtain on their National League campaign with an eventful 1-1 draw against Exeter City at Exwick Sports Hub on Sunday.

The Cherries headed to Devon knowing victory would guarantee the Division One South West title and took the lead through Gemma McGuinness in the 24th minute.

However, the Grecians only required a draw to clinch top spot and promotion with Zoe Cunningham netting their leveller from a free-kick in the 58th minute.

Cherries goalkeeper Dani Kosińska pulled off a fine save to keep out Amber Pollock’s fierce strike on the hour.

The hosts had defender Mollie Taylor sent off nine minutes from time after she picked up two bookings in the space of 15 second-half minutes.

Taylor’s second yellow card saw the Cherries awarded a free-kick with Molly Barron-Clark’s shot from a tight angle hitting the woodwork.

Although Steve Cuss’s team remained unbeaten in the league this season and ended Exeter’s run of 26 home league wins in succession, the Grecians pipped the Cherries to the title by two points.

The Cherries complete their campaign when they face Southampton under-21s in the final of the Adopt South Hampshire Women’s Senior Cup at Aldershot’s EBB Stadium on 13th May.
