Junior Stanislas has been a valuable part of the Cherries squad since following Eddie Howe from Burnley to Bournemouth in 2014.
The winger came through West Ham United’s youth academy before making his debut for the first team in March 2009 in the Premier League fixture against West Bromwich Albion.
Stanislas went on to make 42 appearances for the Hammers, scoring five goals before moving to Burnley in 2011.
Under Howe’s guidance over the first couple of seasons at Turf Moor, the winger became a regular starter for the Clarets, scoring seven goals in 93 appearances overall in his time there from 2011-2014.
He then moved down south and upon being reunited with the manager, Stanislas made his debut on 9th August in a 4-0 win over Huddersfield Town, scoring a week later at Vitality Stadium against Brentford.
Arguably the most memorable game for the winger in his Cherries career to date came in the club’s first Premier League season after the winger scored two late goals to seal a 3-3 draw at home to Everton.
Stanislas scored six goals in another successful Premier League campaign in the 2016/17 season, including the winner against Everton, two against Hull City during the 6-1 home win and three in the last three games of the season against Stoke City, Burnley and Leicester City.
The following year five further goals were scored by the midfielder, in a season hampered by absences through niggly injuries. The pick of the bunch was a match-winning free-kick to beat West Brom, while a memorable goal away at Stamford Bridge and a winning penalty against Stoke also helped to claim points for the Cherries.
