AFC Bournemouth youngster Harry Cornick is hoping to impress during the opening week of pre-season training.
Cornick agreed a 18 month deal with the Cherries back in January, but remained with non league side Christchurch for the remainder of the season.
The youngster had previously impressed whilst on trial at Dean Court in November, after making a name for himself for in the Wessex League.
He made one brief appearance for a Cherries XI against Bristol Rovers, coming on as a right winger and scoring within minutes of stepping foot on to the pitch.
Premier League sides Stoke City, Southampton, Fulham and eventually relegated Reading were also reportedly interested in Cornick, but Eddie Howe managed to sign the young prospect.
Cornick trained with the squad part-time last season whilst he continued with his A-levels at Poole Grammar School but this week starting training full time with the squad.
Cornick told the Daily Echo...
'...I want to try to make an impact and see if I can stand out, get my chance and take it.
"This will be my first full year in football and I am looking forward to it. I have a lot of emotions about it and it is a bit nerve wracking but I am excited more than anything.
"It is quite a change from what I was doing at Christchurch. We work for longer periods of time, the speed and intensity of the training drills are very different and the technique is near perfect. But everyone encourages you and it is a really nice environment to go into."
