Cherries Hire Walker

Bournemouth have announced Adam Walker is to become the teams new first team manager. Young Walker has stated his delight at being appointed manager of the club and sees a bright future for the South coast club "I believe that Bournemouth will make giant steps towards the future this season. My aim for this season is to emulate the fantastic job Lee (Bradbury) did last season by getting the club to the play off's." There has been some slight controversy over the managerial change, however, due to the reported fact that Adam Walker supports rival club Southampton. When quizzed about this by a BBC Radio Solent reporter, Walker refused to comment on the fact, stating "I don't think it matters who you support, as long as you do your job well." The players Walker is allegedly interested in include veteran defender Sol Campbell and Scott Allan.

Cherries Sign Charlton Youngster

Scott Wagstaff has become Adam Walkers first signing as Bournemouth boss. The former Charlton winger, 21, claimed he was sad to leave Charlton but was yet excited about his future at the Cherries.

The Cherries have also signed Manchester United striker Will Keane on loan until the end of the season.

Forest Forward Joins Cherries
