Cherries defeated by strong Leicester side

AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth


AFC Bournemouth under-21s' pre-season preparations continued with a 3-1 defeat away to a strong Leicester City side.

The behind-closed-doors friendly, which took place at Leicester's training ground, saw the Foxes take an early lead through Poland international Bartosz Kapustka’s strike inside of 60 seconds.

After the goal Carl Fletcher's men settled and it was a tight affair for the remainder of the half, with the young side matching their experienced counterparts.

And their efforts were rewarded with the equaliser just five minutes after the break.

The home goalkeeper tried to play out to his central midfielder, but Sam Surridge was alert to cut it. The striker, who enjoyed a successful loan spell at Yeovil Town last season, took a touch before wrapping the ball exquisitely into the roof of the net.

But just a minute later, Wales international George Thomas fired the hosts ahead once again, cutting inside to the edge of the box and rifling into the bottom corner.

Connor Tee made it 3-1 to the hosts from distance after 73 minutes - that was the last action as the Cherries encountered a strong learning curve against a vastly experienced Foxes side.
