Having been restricted to a handful of appearances so far this season, Harry Arter is having to be patient for his chance to get in to the Cherries first team.
The summer singing from Woking is quoted in the Bournemouth Evening Echo as saying: "I have had to wait patiently and it is really frustrating. But it is not that bad when you are sitting waiting for your chance with a team second in the league. It gives you something to smile about. If we were bottom of the league and I still wasn’t getting my chance, I would start questioning myself and, maybe, if I was working hard enough. But I’m in a team that is second in the league, so I can easily see the reason why I’m not playing. For myself, I want to get in the team. But I don’t want it to be down to a lack of form because that is not going to be the best thing for the team. The main thing I want to do is get promoted this season. From Conference South last year to play any part in a team that gets promoted to the Championship would be a massive achievement for me. I would love the team to get promoted and if I’m part of that by playing or sitting on the bench, I would be happy either way. It is not an individual thing here, it is a team game. That is probably why we are doing so well. Everyone here is united and everyone plays for each other. I will play any part Bradders or the lads need me to".
