Will Dennis

Position:
Goalkeeper

Will Dennis made his first-team debut in 2020/21 having progressed through the ranks at AFC Bournemouth.

Dennis, who joined the club as a 15-year-old in 2016, started in the third round of the FA Cup as the Cherries triumphed 4-1 against Crawley Town at Vitality Stadium in January 2021. 

Raised in Hertfordshire, Dennis started out at Luton Town before joining the Watford academy where he played from under-nines to under-16s.

He left the Hornets in January 2016 and had trials with Stevenage, MK Dons and Coventry before choosing to sign as a first-year scholar with the Cherries in the summer of 2016.

Dennis was rewarded for his efforts with his first professional contract 18 months later and was also selected for a number of England under-18 training camps.

Following his elevation to the club’s under-21 squad, Dennis featured regularly in the Premier League Cup, Central League Cup and Hampshire Senior Cup.

In October 2017, he joined Guernsey on loan and made his debut in a 2-1 victory over Carshalton Athletic, going on to make 13 appearances for the Isthmian League Division One South outfit.

And in January 2018, Dennis completed a loan move to Weymouth and made 22 appearances for the Terras, including 20 in the Southern Premier League.

At the start of the 2019/20 season, he was elevated to the first-team squad and trained with Aaron Ramsdale, Artur Boruc and Mark Travers under the guidance of goalkeeping coach Neil Moss.

He penned a three-and-a-half year deal in March 2020 and started the 2020/21 campaign as back up to Asmir Begovic and Travers before being handed his debut in the FA Cup.

In April 2021, Dennis kept a clean sheet in the final of the Central League Cup as the Cherries triumphed 2-0 against Carlisle United at St George’s Park.
