Marcus Daws

Date of birth:
26th December 2003

Marcus Daws has continued to make eye-catching progress since joining the AFC Bournemouth academy ahead of the start of the 2020/21 season.

Daws, who can operate as a left winger or a number ten, trained with Scott Parker’s first-team squad during the first half of the 2021/22 campaign.

Starting out with Bristol Rovers, he joined Southampton when he was eight and was initially based at their Bath University campus.

Raised in Somerset, Daws moved away from his family when he was just 11 and attended boarding school during his first two years with Southampton.

He then spent three years with a host family before he was released by Southampton at 16 having not had sufficient time to prove himself due to injury.

A series of broken bones in different parts of his body saw Daws sidelined for around three years as he progressed through the age groups at Southampton.

He signed a two-year scholarship with the Cherries in August 2020 and hit the ground running in his first season with the club, netting 18 goals for Alan Connell’s team.

During his time at Vitality Stadium, Daws has been invited to attend three training camps with Northern Ireland under-18s.

Daws featured as the Cherries reached the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup in 2021/22 and also helped them win the EFL Youth Alliance title.

In February 2022, he joined Southern Premier South outfit Poole Town on a work experience loan.

He travelled extensively throughout his youth football career, playing in a number of European countries as well as in a cup competition in China.

His cousin Dylan Morgan, who was with him at Southampton, signed his first professional contract with Swansea City in the summer of 2021.
