Bournemouth (pronounced ) is an English football club currently
playing in Football League Two. The club plays at Dean Court in
Kings Park, Boscombe, Bournemouth, Dorset and have been in
existence since 1899. Nicknamed The Cherries, the team
traditionally played in red and white stripes until 1971, when the
strip was changed to red and black stripes, similar to that of A.C.

as Boscombe F.C.. To reflect the overall town it became Bournemouth
and Boscombe Athletic F.C. in 1923 just before being elected to the
Football League. Under manager John Bond the club adopted the more
streamlined A.F.C. Bournemouth name in 1972. The south coast club
became the first football club to score 5 goals at the Millennium
Stadium, Cardiff, beating Lincoln City 5-2 in the 2002-03 Division
3 Play-off final (the Slovak national side equalled this feat in
2006 against Wales). However, they remain the only team to have
scored five goals in a Football League play-off final. They are
also famous for defeating holders Manchester United in the FA Cup
