Cargill Poised For First Team Start

Last updated : 28 August 2014 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

With the Cherries defensive cover looking a little light at the back, could 19-year-old Baily Cargill be about to make his entrance to the Championship?

On the up and coming youngster, skipper Tommy Elphick is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "Baily came back fit and strong at the start of pre-season and the manager said he would have no qualms in playing him if he didn’t think either myself or Cookie were deserving of a placeNobody is guaranteed a place and we know Baily is breathing down our necks. That is all down to him and the work he has put in and the improvements he has made. When you get someone who is as good as Baily, you want to see them coming to the fore at 19 or 20 and banging the door down to be playing in the first team. He has certainly shown he is capable of that. He had a couple of good loan spells last season and is a credit to himself, to Stephen Purches and to the youth team coaches who have worked with him to make him the player he is today".
