Taking advantage of the eye-catching Bournemouth beaches, Steve's work stems from his passion for nature, the outdoors, and its artistic interpretation. "I've always lived by the sea, and I love outdoors.

Clubs will be able to sign only six foreign players per campaign for the foreseeable future whereas before they could have a maximum of 17. Also, these players can only make the move if they meet the points-based threshold set to manage the transfer market...

Players can enjoy the game indoors or outdoors on a doubles badminton-sized court and a slightly modified tennis net. Between two and four people can play by using solid wooden paddles to hit a perforated polymer ball over a net...

Should AFC Bournemouth be Concerned for their Defence?

A big part of Bournemouth’s high goal concession is down to their inability to clear danger in crucial areas. Out of the 11 goals they have conceded this season, nine have been from inside their own 18 yard box. The other three were penalties. Giving the opposition the chance to shoot from close range has been a recurring flaw. If it weren’t for their consistent finishing in front of goal, Bournemouth may have been in a worrying league position...
