New Fixtures Out

Last updated : 18 June 2012 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator

Putting the Capital One League Cup fixture to one side, the season opens for AFC Bournemouth, on August 18, with a short trip along the A31 and M27 to meet Hampshire neighbours Portsmouth at Fratton Park (assuming there's a club at Fratton Park to play come August). It'll be the Cherries first visit to Portsmouth since the 5-1 defeat in the FA Cup back in 1991. The return match at Dean Court is scheduled for February 9th, 2013.

The first home fixture of the new campaign is against Franchise FC on August 21.

Christmas will see the Cherries play three times over the Festive period, at home to Yeovil Town on Boxing Day, Crawley Town 3 days later and a trip to SW London to face Brentford on New Years Day.

The Cherries finish the season in April with a home match against Carlisle United on April 20, with the season closing on the Wirral against Tranmere Rovers.
