Early departure for Charlie Sherringham

Charlie Sherringham will be a free agent this summer with AFCB deciding not to extend his contract after 18 months at the Goldsands stadium. The club website says that Charlie had a meeting with Eddie Howe and Jason Tindall today and that they ''reluctantly decided to let him go."

I thought Charlie Sherringham was a good prospect at 24 years old, but with the team now about to play in the Championship there are some tough decisions for Eddie and Jason to make about the squad, and if that means trimming the numbers and buying in even higher quality we should not be surprised at such decisions.

The timing is very quick after all of yesterday's celebrations but it shows that AFCB is already preparing for the next phase of its development and the Championship is a big step up in quality. On last night's Late Kick off South the Doncaster chairman was quoted as saying, ''it is like going up two leagues when you get promoted from League One.''

The jump in level is likely to be too great for some and we have to trust that Eddie and Jason will do what is best for the players and for AFC Bournemouth as Championship football awaits.
