BRENNAN Camp “loved every minute” of his Weymouth loan but made no secret of his desire to play first-team football at Bournemouth.

The Dorset-raised 20-year-old defender made 34 appearances for the Terras in all competitions last season, finishing 18th in the Vanarama National League.

Speaking with, Camp said the 2020/21 campaign was the “most ruthless” he has participated in.

He said: “Looking back now we’ve all been saying how long the season was and it’s certainly the most ruthless season I’ve been a part of.

“In November the whole team came back from Stockport with Covid, that put us out for two weeks, there was all the trouble around the league about whether it was going to be able to end or not.

“It’s been long, but a great learning curve for me.

"It was the club’s first year back in the National League for a while so it was always going to be a tough start but after a few games we got used to the football and the teams with the style they were playing.

“The manager brought quite a few players to the club in January and we started to push up the table and pull clear of the drop zone.

“It’s been a pretty big challenge for me but I’ve loved every minute of it.”

However, the former Dorchester and Portland United loanee right-back is looking to break into the Cherries’ senior side.

“In the last two or three years I’ve been out on loan at a good level,” he said.

“I think I’ve proved that I can play in the men’s game and can play at any level, physically and mentally.

“I’ll be back with Bournemouth in pre-season and will try to hit the ground running, whether that’s another good loan or giving it a good crack with my aspirations to get in the first team with Bournemouth, which is what I’d love to do.”
