Cherries book place in Cup final

Cherries book place in Cup final

AFC Bournemouth progressed through to the Hampshire Senior Cup final on Tuesday night after beating Southern League Premier Division side AFC Totton on penalties.

AFC Bournemouth development coach Chris Hargreaves has led the side throughout the tournament, naming predominately development squad and youth team players in his sides.

For last nights fixture, alongside regulars such as Josh Carmichael and AFCB Vital sponsored Josh Wakefield, Hargreaves also welcomed back 'keeper Darryl Flahavan and striker Charlie Sheringham.

Flahavan hasn't featured for the Cherries since a shoulder injury required an operation during the early weeks of the season, whilst Sheringham hasn't played since injuring his foot scoring against Brentford on Boxing Day 2011.

After 80 minutes of football, Totton broke the deadlock after Luke Whitley's cross deceived Flahavan and Luke Roberts tucked it away from close range.

The Cherries were back on level terms just minutes later when Aristide Bassele scored an important equaliser.

After 30 minutes of extra time the game went to penalties with Flahavan saving twice to book the Cherries in the Hampshire Senior Cup Final, where they will play Alresford Town.

Sheringham only played the first half. Obviously not match fit and more of a link up role rather than out and out striker. He used his body strength well and nice to see gave genuine guidance to the young lads. Josh Carmichael dominated the game for us in midfield in the first half but after his booking it was wise to rest him for the second half rather physical.

I didn't catch the name of our scored, no7, who took his goal well and looks a prospect. My man of the match was our no 4 and I think Mossie told me his name was Josh (?) Turner. Very solid, read the game well and with good positional play. Looks a little like another no 4 who came through and he didn't do that badly.

Saw Groves slinking about the only one not in an afcb jacket taking refuge in the stands. I assume that it was this Max guy who was taking the photos has a small beard.

Enjoyable contest. Perhaps we tried to be a bit too clever in front of goal but all the penalties taken well.

Although I didn't buy any food or hot drinks they seem to be well appreciated and looked home made. Rather large portions of chips mostly swimming in red sauce.

I thought our No 7 Bassele was our best player. I got some chips and were very good, the sausage roll not so much, also quite cheap though. I agree that Carmichael was very good in the first half.
