Cherries stars join youngsters for Premier League Kicks


Cherries players Jefferson Lerma and Diego Rico joined in with more than 40 young football players, at the latest Premier League Kicks session at Mudeford Wood Community Centre in Christchurch.

The sessions, which are run by AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust, welcome young players on a turn-up-and-play basis, to get involved with the game. They are free of charge and open to all.

The project is sponsored by two companies based at Bournemouth Airport’s Aviation Park, AIM Altitude and Curtiss-Wright.

Lerma and Rico joined the young players for their footballing activities, as well as answering questions about playing in the World Cup finals and signing for the Cherries. 

AFC Bournemouth Head of Community, Steve Cuss, said:

“Premier League Kicks is one of the programmes we run throughout the year at 17 sites across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch. 

It’s great that Jefferson and Diego have been here to watch the boys and girls play.”
