New Book Charts AFC Bournemouth's Amazing Rise

As we celebrate AFC Bournemouth being on fire with their 4-0 victory against Watford, it's worth remembering that it was only three years ago that the two sides were battling to win the Football League Championship.

The Cherries remarkable rise is explored in detail in a new book by Neil Meldrum. 'Bournemouth: The Fall and Rise' is the ultimate rags-to-riches football story, exploring how a small lower-league club on the south coast fought back against all the odds to reach the riches of the English Premier League. With fascinating insights from renowned manager Eddie Howe and all the key players, the book reflects on the club's day of destiny against Bolton Wanderers in April 2015, when Premier League promotion was secured just six years after the club almost went out of existence.

In the book, former captain Tommy Elphick candidly reveals how Howe plotted the Cherries' route out of the Championship, while club legend Steve Fletcher tells the emotionally charged story of his return - and the goal in 2009 that halted the club's slide into non-league. Howe, meanwhile, provides amazing detail into how he took a club on the brink to the top of the beautiful game.
