Harte: Good to have competition for places

AFC Bournemouth's latest signing Ian Harte has targeted not only breaking into the Cherries starting eleven, but also the Championship team of the season.

The former Republic Of Ireland International has been named in the PFA Team of the season four times throughout his long career.

The left back, who turns 36 in August, was first named in the Premier League PFA team of the year in 2000, whilst over three consecutive seasons he was also named in the League One team of the year with Carlisle in 2010 and with Reading in the Championship in 2011 and 2012.

Harte's first target is to challenge Charlie Daniels for place in the AFC Bournemouth starting line-up, with his overall aim to be recognised by his peers once again at the end of the season.

Harte told the Daily Echo...

"People say nowadays you are finished when you are over 30. But if you look after yourself, you will be fine. Although supporters may have a different view, your fellow professionals vote for those teams and they were kind enough to pick me.

"My ambition this season is to try to push to get in it again. I need to try to get in the starting line-up first and Charlie (Daniels) did amazingly well last season. I think it is always good to have competition for places and, whether I`m starting or on the bench, you always need to be a team player."

...experience is key and that is what we are needing over the coming season so Harte represents a decent signing
