Austin Asked To Keep Level Head

Speaking in the Bournemouth Evening Echo, the Poole Town manager is quoted as saying of the Dolphins prolific scorer: "It's an opportunity for him to get some training with a professional club and mix with professional players. That can only be of benefit to him. I'm sure neither party is really looking much beyond that at this moment in time. Even though the likelihood is that nothing will come of it, it can only be good for Charlie. That's the way we, as a club, are looking at it. It can't do any harm. Bournemouth get to have a closer look at him and see if he is of interest to them and from the player's point of view he gets to train with them, which is of benefit to him. I'm sure they have looked at an awful lot of people so it's not a complete surprise that they are looking at Charlie, based on how well he has been doing. Everyone is very aware that there is a massive gap between our level and the level Bournemouth play at. If you were playing in the Conference and banging in a few goals, you expect to be getting a bit of attention. But I am aware, and Charlie is aware, that there is a big gulf between what he has been doing for us and what Bournemouth might be looking for".
