AGE: 22

POSITION: Central midfielder

JOINED: October 2017

DID YOU

KNOW?

AFC Bournemouth were our opponents

when midfielder Tyreeq Bakinson scored

his first Ashton Gate goal. His looping

header opened the scoring last March

in a fixture the Cherries went on to win

2-1 behind closed doors (pictured).

That was Bakinson’s second of four

goals for the season in a 2020/21

campaign where he began to cement

his place around the first team.

He spent the previous two seasons on

loan at Plymouth Argyle and Newport

County, having made his professional

debut coming off the bench for City

in a 4-1 win over Crystal Palace in the

2017/18 Carabao Cup run.

elcome back

to Ashton Gate

after the second

international

break of

the season. What lies ahead of us is a great

opportunity to build on our form from the last few

weeks and continue in a positive mindset.

Curtis’ thoughts in that Peterborough posed us a

lot of questions but we answered them and proved

what we are about by scoring three goals ourselves.

I was also pleased for George Tanner who scored

his first goal for the club in the 3-2 win; I know he

was delighted after the start he has made since

joining us at the end of August.

Thank you very much

for your messages

of support and

well-wishes whilst I

was recovering from

Covid-19.

I missed my

matchday

responsibilities

against Millwall and

Peterborough United

while self-isolating at

home, which meant I

watched our last two

games via Robins TV.

I still kept in contact

with the staff and

everything was in

good hands.

Curtis Fleming and rest of the staff did a wonderful

job in my absence, and I thank him for stepping

in. Preparations have continued as normal for this

next fixture against AFC Bournemouth and it has

been great to return to work, get back to familiar

surroundings at the Robins High Performance

Centre and focus on the job at hand.

IT’S A BIG TEST

AGAINST A

SIDE WHO ARE

UNBEATEN IN THE

CHAMPIONSHIP...

BUT WE HAVE A

TEAM WHO HAVE

BELIEF THEY CAN

COMPETE WITH

ANYONE.

I would like to

welcome Scott Parker,

his staff, players and

AFC Bournemouth

fans to Ashton Gate

today, who I am sure

are expecting a tough

game.

I was back at the

RHPC on Tuesday

looking ahead to this

next fixture. It’s a big

test against a side who

are unbeaten in the

Championship. They

are in great form at

the top of the table but

they will know about

our threats and we

have a team of players

who have belief they can compete with anyone.

I want us to play with energy and hopefully that will

be replicated from our supporters in the stands. I

am told this is going to be our biggest home crowd

of the season so far, so I can’t wait to see and hear

you out there. Enjoy the game!

Last time out against Peterborough we had to

defend well but we saw quality in both boxes which

Curtis had demanded heading into the game. I echo

Cheers,

KEY PLAYER

9DOMINIC

SOLANKE

The 24-year-old striker has eight

goals in all competitions so far

this season, consistently finding

the back of the net from his 12

appearances to date.

The Reading-born forward is also

the fifth highest goalscorer in

the Championship with a total of

seven league goals to his team’s

tally of 18 in the second tier – a

39% contribution rate – as well

as boasting 3.1 shots per game,

ranking him as the fourth highest in

the division.

Capped at all levels by England,

he joined the Cherries in January

2019 in a £17million transfer from

Liverpool, who had signed the

forward from Chelsea’s Academy.

While with the Blues, Solanke had

spent the 2015/16 season on loan

at Vitesse Arnhem.

10 | THE ROB NS AFC Bournemouth


DID YOU

KNOW?

Defender Brennan Camp, 21, is the grandson of the late City

legend Gerry Gow. Camp joined the Cherries’ youth ranks in

2007 and captained his age group to the quarter-final of the FA

Youth Cup – the club’s best run in the competition for 50 years.

THE CHERRIES ENTERED THE

INTERNATIONAL BREAK ON TOP OF

THE CHAMPIONSHIP TABLE THANKS

TO A 2-1 WIN OVER SHEFFIELD

UNITED A FORTNIGHT AGO.

Battling back from a goal down,

courtesy of two goals in three

second-half minutes from

Dominic Solanke’s penalty and

Philip Billing, they reclaimed

pole position after secondplaced

West Bromwich Albion

lost at Stoke CIty.

Scott Parker’s men are the

only unbeaten side in the

Championship, and were three

points clear prior to the Baggies'

Friday night derby encounter

with Birmingham City.

So far, the Cherries have

won seven and drawn four in

the league, but did exit the

Carabao Cup in a 6-0 round

two defeat to Norwich City.

Brennan Camp, grandson

of Gerry Gow, made his

Bournemouth debut in that

encounter and, while the young

Scottish defender was on the

bench four times in August,

he has yet to feature in the

Championship.

Head Coach Parker – who left

Fulham by mutual consent in

June following the Cottagers'

relegation from the Premier

Former Arsenal Academy winger Jaidon Anthony in action with

Peterborough United's Harrison Burrows during last month's goalless draw

League – may well be reluctant

to change his early success

formula. It’s been quite the start

for the former West Ham and

England midfielder who signed

a three-year deal in the summer,

following the departure of

Jonathan Woodgate.

Upon Parker’s appointment,

he welcomed experienced

signings in Emiliano Marcondes

(from Brentford), Ørjan Nyland

(Norwich City), Gary Cahill

(Crystal Palace), Ryan Christie

(Celtic), Jamal Lowe (Swansea

City), while Leif Davis and

Morgan Rogers have been

signed on loan from Leeds

United and Manchester City,

respectively.

A whole host of players also

departed over the course of the

summer transfer window, the

most notable including Asmir

Begović, Diego Rico, Arnaut

Danjuma and Jack Wilshere.

BACK IN

BUSINESS

September began with a

goalless draw at home to

Preston North End, before

we saw victory snatched

away at the death when

Luton Town visited Ashton

Gate.

Nathan Baker rose to meet

Jay Dasilva’s cross which

put us on course for a first

home win since January,

but it wasn’t to be as Danny

Hylton tapped in from close

range late on.

Victory, however, came away

at Queens Park Rangers

thanks to Nahki Wells’ late

strike against his former

side, as we recorded a third

consecutive away win!

A home 1-1 draw against

Fulham was followed up

by defeat at the Den where

Millwall snuck a narrow

1-0 win courtesy of Jed

Wallace’s penalty to cruelly

prevent an unbeaten month

for the Robins.

INTERVIEW

FROM ACADEMY FOOTBALL TO

A FIRST-TEAM BREAKTHROUGH,

TEENAGE MIDFIELDER ALEX SCOTT

REFLECTS ON A “CRAZY” 2021.

GREAT

SCOTT

"

It was definitely

a surprise to

start the first

game of the season against

Blackpool” Alex Scott tells

THE ROB NS, however there is

nothing surprising about the

rise of City’s young starlet.

The midfielder, who is still just

18, was scouted while playing

for Guernsey FC and his signing

announcement was confirmed

in late 2019, prior to the official

switch at the turn of 2020.

Scott joined the Under-18s

setup before a move to the

Under-23s side, who went on to

finish top of the Professional

Development League South

division last season.

Injuries to the first team last

season meant Nigel Pearson

would look at his Under-23s

options and Scott got the nod

away to Swansea City, albeit he

was an unused substitute.

He waited patiently for his

opportunity, returning to the

matchday squad away to

Coventry City before his first

taste off the bench at home to

Luton Town.

He was part of Pearson’s plans

as the City manager reshaped

his squad in the summer and

Scott found himself in the

starting XI on matchday one at

home to Blackpool.

“I had wanted first-team football,

I had that taster towards the

back end of last season, so I’ve

really enjoyed it,” said Scott.

“Since then, I’ve played in

some good results but we’ve

had tough ones as well, now we

just need to get the results at

home and that can help us

push on." 4

Words James Crawley

I JUST HAVE TO

KEEP PUSHING

MYSELF TO BE THE

BEST AND NOW I’M

IN THE FIRST TEAM

I’M JUST AIMING TO

BE THE BEST I CAN

AT THIS LEVEL.

4 “It’s been a crazy year

for me. Going from Under-

18s to Under-23s was

tough but that’s the first

big step in your career.

"You get used to Under-

23s football but I couldn’t

get comfortable and I

kept looking forward, to

be ready for my first team

opportunity. I’ve taken it

all in my stride now I just

need to keep my head

down and improve even

more both on and off the

pitch.”

That start on the opening

day of the season was a

reward for his hard work

and he rightly got an

ovation from the crowd

when he departed the

pitch in the second half

against the Seasiders.

“It was a special moment,”

said Scott with a beaming

smile. “It helped I had to

do the walk around and I

got to embrace that. That

was the first competitive

game with fans back

too so it was a brilliant

moment.

“Honestly, I didn’t expect

to push on as far as I

have. To sign my first

pro deal here was a big

moment for me, signing

another contract on my

18th birthday a couple of

months ago was a another

special moment for me

too.

“I’m just enjoying my

time here and I’m

extremely grateful for

the opportunities I have

been given. Tony Vance at

Guernsey has been a big

influence for me, as has

Brian Tinnion in bringing

me here, they’ve helped to

kick off my career.

“I just have to keep pushing

myself to be the best and

now I’m in the first team

I’m just aiming to be the

best I can at this level.”

Scott also has big ambitions

on the international stage,

reflecting on his involvement

with the England Under-19s.

“It’s special to play for your

country,” said Scott, having

just returned to the Robins

High Performance Centre

after October’s international

action, where the Young

Lions played France, Mexico

– Scott was an unused

substitute – and Belgium.

“It was tough but I gained

more experience, I got

two more caps and I really

enjoyed it. It’s different – at

first it was hard because

I’m the only player from

City in the age group and

everyone already knows

each other, but they’re a

great bunch of lads, we get

along and I feel a big part of

the squad.

“Of course I’ve got my eyes

on the Under-20s and

Under-21s, then on to the

first team – that’s the aim!”

Giving Football Back to

Small Business

At eBay, we know small business and

football clubs used to be like chips and

gravy, two peas in a pod – a match

made in community heaven.

Ironmongers, ship workers, spring

makers and cobblers, all formed clubs

which decades later are still prospering.

But nowadays, you’d think it was all

eyewatering transfers, Super Leagues

and mega sponsors, detached from the

humble origins of our historic clubs.

That’s why eBay are proud to support

300,000 small businesses who help

power EFL clubs nationwide. We’ll be

donating our advertising space to a lot

of these businesses – on match day

hoardings, around grounds and beyond –

throughout the coming season, to ensure

they can continue to thrive in our local

communities. So, join us in giving your

support to Small Business Power, because

today, they need us more than ever.
