Popular winger Marc Pugh has just completed his seventh season with the Cherries after arriving on the south coast in 2010.

He worked his way up the ranks at Burnley and graduated to the first-team in 2004 as a 17-year-old. After subsequently scoring 15 goals for the reserve and youth teams in his third year as an apprentice, Pugh was sent out to Kidderminster Harriers on loan in order to gain first-team experience.

After two loan spells, seven appearances and one goal for the Carpetmen, Pugh learnt that he would not be offered a professional deal at Burnley and so opted to move to Bury.

The winger spent one full season with the Shakers, making 41 appearances and scoring four goals, before rejecting a new contract and joining fellow league two side Shrewsbury Town ahead of the 2007/08 season.

Pugh would spend two years at New Meadow, with short loan spells at Luton and Hereford during that time. A permanent switch to Hereford came in 2009, where he made 40 league appearances and netted 13 times, before signing for the Cherries the following summer.

Upon arriving at Dean Court, Bournemouth had just been promoted to League One, with Pugh costing approximately £100,000. He finished as the club’s top scorer at the end of both his first and second season with the Cherries, resulting in him being voted the Bournemouth Daily Echo’s Supporters’ Player of the Year.

The 2012/13 season saw Pugh sign a new three-and-a-half-year deal with the club as he contributed eight goals and 46 appearances to the side that won promotion to the Championship.

Just two years later, the now 30-year-old would prove pivotal as the Cherries reached the Premier League for the first time in their history. He scored his first career hat-trick in an 8-0 thrashing of Birmingham and netted the opener in the 3-0 win over Bolton Wanderers whereby promotion to the Premier League was sealed.

Ever since, Pugh has continued to be a consistent figure at Vitality Stadium. His maiden Premier League goal came in the 4-3 win over West Ham in August 2015, meaning that he had scored in each of the top five divisions of English football, whilst last season his volley against Leicester and trademark goal against Middlesbrough helped the Cherries on their way to a record finish.
