Poole Town look to spring a surprise on Cherries

When AFC Bournemouth come to play Poole Town tonight they know they'll be in for a hard game. Fresh from their promotion from the Evo-Stick Southern League Division One South & West to the Calor League Premier Division, the Dolphins are on the rise just like the Cherries. 

Poole will now play in the same league as Weymouth, AFC Totton and Bashley during 2013/14. Steve Devlin and Carl Preston both scored 15 goals for the Dolphins last year and they'll be keen to try and burst the net against AFC Bournemouth.

On 6 July, the last visitors to the Tatnam ground were one of AFC Bournemouth's Championship rivals Yeovil Town who managed to overcome the Dolphins 1:3. So the bar has been set quite high and the Cherries will be looking to keep a clean sheet. Hopefully, as local big weights, Bournemouth's visit will also surpass the 487 who saw Yeovil triumph.

I don't need to remind the well informed that last year the Cherries XI went down 2:1 to Poole Town, so a chance of revenge may well spur on some of our players who might have played in that game last July. It is likely that AFCB will field a strong first team.

The game kicks off at 7.45pm tonight at the Tatnam ground, off School Lane, BH15 3JR.
