Jaidon Anthony

Date of birth:
1st December 1999

Frontman Jaidon Anthony broke into the AFC Bournemouth first team in 2020/21 having progressed through the club’s academy ranks.

Anthony made five substitute appearances in the Championship and came off the bench twice as the Cherries reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

He spent ten years on the books at Arsenal, progressing alongside the likes of Emile Smith Rowe and Reiss Nelson, before earning a scholarship at Vitality Stadium after impressing during a trial in 2016.

Born in Hackney, London, Anthony helped the Cherries lift the EFL Youth Alliance Cup and EFL Merit League Two title in his first season at the club.

He progressed to the club’s under-21 squad and helped them win the Central League Cup in 2018/19.

After regularly training with the first-team squad, he signed a new contract with the club in the summer of 2019 and again in 2020.

He scored once in four appearances as the Cherries reached the last 16 of the Premier League Cup in 2019/20.

On transfer deadline day in January 2020, Anthony joined National South outfit Weymouth on loan and helped them win promotion to the National League via the play-offs.

He scored in their play-off semi-final win over Dorking Wanderers and netted a penalty in the Terras’ shootout victory against Dartford in the final.

He came off the bench in the Cherries’ two pre-season friendlies in 2020, replacing Arnaut Danjuma in the 2-1 defeat by Benfica.

And Anthony completed the scoring as the Cherries lifted the Betway Cup after triumphing 5-3 against West Ham at the London Stadium.

Anthony celebrated his 21st birthday by making his first-team debut, coming off the bench as a 71st-minute substitute in a 3-2 defeat by Preston North End in December 2020.

The winger assisted Sam Surridge for a late second goal as the Cherries came close to pulling off a dramatic comeback.

Anthony made four further substitute appearances in the Championship and also came off the bench in the fourth round and quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

He was on the scoresheet as the Cherries triumph 4-2 against Real Balompedica Linense in their first pre-season friendly of 2021/22.
