Matthews Turns Pro
Highly rated Sam Matthews, has signed a deal which will see him turn pro.
A product of the Cherries youth set up has signed a 3-year deal which will see the youngster turn pro next March when he reaches his 17th birthday.
The teenager, who has travelled with the Club to Switzerland, was quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I have been at the club since I was 10 or 11 and I love it here. I have just left school, so to be able to come in full-time and train with the first team has been really good. The intensity of the sessions is a lot harder but I am feeling stronger and quicker already and, hopefully, I can continue that. Eddie and Jason have been great with me and I have learned so much from them. They are really supportive of me but they are mindful of how young I am and what stage I am at physically. I can’t thank them enough. I didn’t expect to be going to Switzerland but it is really exciting. I am sure it will be a good experience and I will learn a lot from it".
