AC Millan edge out the Cherries 1-2 in Cummings' Testimonial

AFCB 1 v 2 AC Milan
Warren Cummings' Testimonial
2 September 2016

Dean Court was the stage for an epic meeting this afternoon of two red and black teams as a testimonial was played between AFCB and AC Milan for Warren Cummings. There was little goal mouth action first half but in the second Milan went ahead after Suso scored, but it was quickly equalised by Lys Mousset who scored his first goal for the Cherries. Within second of the restart though Jordan Holmes brought down Niang who then scored from the penalty box. But the day was all about Warrren Cummings and there were great cheers when he came on and made his first pass with 10 minutes of the game to go. Always a favourite with the home crowd it will have been a great pleasure to many to have seen him wearing the AFCB kit once again.
A chance to think about yesteryear for AFCB fans.
AFCB's XI was very popular as it included a debit for Jack Wilshire and Tyrone Mings made his first start since being injured last season against Leicester City. Emerson Hyndman would also make his debut in front of a home crowd and it was the first chance for Junior Stanislas to stretch his legs. Finally, Ollie Harfield made his first team debut at left back.
