As part of #StateOfTheGame’s regional series, watch below how AFC Bournemouth‘s youth system operates, their techniques to get the most out of young players and the challenges they face in today’s modern era.
#StateOfTheGame is a project by journalist Tom Bennett for his Major Multimedia Project at Bournemouth University. This project focuses on the problems with elite youth football in England and the outlook for the future. The project is aimed at BBC Sport but BBC Sport has no affiliation with this project and its name, logo and graphics is being purely used for academic purposes. BBC Sport is simply a target outlet for this project if it were to be marketed in real life. I must also point out that this project has no official affiliation with AFC Bournemouth or the work that I conduct for them.
