AFC Bournemouth's historic rise to the Premier League is depicted in stunning style in a new book produced by the Daily Echo.

Fans will not want to miss 'AFC Bournemouth - The Cherries 1890 to the Premier League,' a new hardback book featuring photographs of key points in the club's history.

The 160-page book contains over 500 amazing photographs, showing how the club has grown from its humble roots as Boscombe St John's Lads Institute FC in 1890 to a Premier League team competing against the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

It is a photographic journey through the decades and one that will rekindle fond memories for long-standing supporters.

Highlights include two celebrated encounters with Manchester United - the time Bournemouth and Boscombe took on the Busby Babes and the giant-killing FA Cup tie under Harry Redknapp.

The book, which is sponsored by Rockett Plumbing and Heating Supplies, also relives the Supermac era, when striker Ted MacDougall and winger Phil Boyer combined forces to superb effect, and the handful of occasions when legendary footballer George Best turned out for the Cherries.

It depicts the heightened emotions on display at the Winter Gardens meeting, when supporters threw cash into collection buckets in a desperate bid to save the club, and the delight as AFC Bournemouth played on the hallowed turf at Wembley for the first time.

And there are dozens of photographs devoted to the club's recent success, which seemed unimaginable just a few years ago. The glorious celebrations that surrounded Eddie Howe's team as they clinched promotion first to the Championship and then to football's top flight are memories that every fan will want to savour.

It even contains photographs of the Cherries' first few games in the Premier League, including hat-trick hero Callum Wilson scoring three goals against West Ham.

The book, which contains a foreword by Eddie Howe, will soon be available to buy at £14.95. It will be available from the Daily Echo offices in Bournemouth and Swanage as well as a number of local book stores. Full details of stockists will be announced shortly.
