Football League Youth Alliance, South West Conference
AFC Bournemouth U18 2 Plymouth Argyle U18 2 (att 64)
AFC Bournemouth are another club who tend to move their youth team games to various venues. They began this season at Canford Arena, but recent games have been played in the opulent surroundings of Canford School, apparently while some work is carried out on the Arena pitch.
Canford is an independent school just outside Wimborne, and its playing fields have been used as a training ground by Bournemouth's footballers in the past.
Today's pitch was some distance from the main school buildings. As usual for these matches, one side of the well-cared for pitch was for spectators, the other for subs and coaching staff.
The game was okay, without hitting any great heights. The home side just about edged it, but twice they took the lead and both times they allowed Plymouth to equalise within just a couple of minutes. The sides shared a goal each in each half.
