Ritchie: I want to add another promotion to my CV

AFC Bournemouth winger Matt Ritchie has set his sights on adding promotion from League One to his CV.

The former Portsmouth trainee has been part of two clubs promotion campaigns from League Two, but would now like to earn promotion from League One with the Cherries.

Ritchie made 16 appearances for Notts County during the 2009-10 season, when County went on to take the title ahead of AFC Bournemouth.

He later went on to sign for Swindon on loan and during his third spell with the club, they also went on to lift the League Two trophy.

Ritchie joined the Cherries in a 500,000 deal on Wednesday, signing a three and a half year contract and Ritchie is looking forward to getting involved with the team and working with manager Eddie Howe.

Ritchie told the Daily Echo...

"I had some great times at Swindon but felt it was time to move on, I won League Two with Swindon last season and my aim is to add another promotion to my CV this year...

"...When you move, people expect things of you and the manager has signed me expecting me to do well. I need to provide and score goals and, hopefully, I can do that and help Bournemouth.

"I am sure the manager can get the best out of me and am really looking forward to working with him."
