Versatile performer Luke Nippard joined the Cherries in 2012 and has worked his way through the development centre and academy ranks.
Poole-born Nippard, who can operate as a central midfielder or at right-back, attended Poole High School.
He started out playing for Poole Town Youth before he was spotted by Cherries scouts and invited to join the club.
In 2018/19, he played his part as the Cherries reached the quarter-final of the FA Youth Cup – the club’s best run in the competition for 50 years.
Nippard was rewarded with his first professional contract after completing his two-year scholarship at the end of 2018/19.
He has trained with Eddie Howe’s first-team squad and had a brief loan spell with Weymouth.
