Eddie Howe delighted to bring success to AFC Bournemouth

28 April 2015

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has expressed his delight after a 3-0 win over Bolton Wanderers put the Cherries on the verge of promotion from the Sky Bet Championship.

Marc Pugh, Matt Ritchie and Callum Wilson grabbed the goals in a routine victory, and the triumph put Bournemouth three points clear of third-placed Middlesbrough with one game remaining, and their superior goal difference has all but guaranteed them their place in the Premier League.

Speaking to the club's official website, Howe said: “It's just incredible really, it's difficult to describe.

"It will take some time to sink in really because we've been so intense and the games have come so quickly that you really do focus on each one as though your life depends on it, and then when its over its difficult to sum up how you feel.

"But it's a great day for the football club, great day for our supporters and we're just really pleased to be able to make them feel like this."

The Cherries' boss came through the ranks at the club as a player, something he says makes the achievement of promotion as a manager even more special.

“It's very special. When you have such an association with a football club and been here so long, it means even more.

“The club you come through the youth set-up with as a player is always a special club for you, and that's never left me. I'm very privileged to be manager, very privileged to have played for the club so just very pleased that we've been able to bring success to the supporters.”
