AFC Bournemouth came out on top in tonight's second pre-season friendly on home soil, beating Wessex League side Christchurch 7-1. A brace from Harry Arter, and goals for youth team graduates Jayden Stockley, Baily Cargill, Brett Pitman as well as Lewis Grabban and Donal McDermott saw the side to a comfortable away success.

Pre-season friendly matches like this are by no means a marker for any of the season to come, although the team did what was expected of them in this fixture. By all accounts, McDermott's goal was a good one, and it is always pleasing to see players progressing from the youth team get on the score sheet so there was something to cheer for the visiting fans in the 722 strong crowd.

Eddie Howe again gave a run out to two separate teams, essentially, during the fixture as the race to get up to speed ahead of the first game in the Championship on 3 August gets underway in earnest.

Next up, Bashley play host to the Cherries tomorrow night, before a short break in advance of the first home game of the pre-season period, the visit of West Ham United for Stephen Purches' testimonial Saturday 13.
