GOALS: Hollands 39, Goulding 54, Pearce 70

The Cherries and Jimmy Quinn finally got their first win of the season against table toppers Bradford.

It’s been a long time coming but the Cherries season finally kicked into gear with the hosts outplayed for much of the match.

Anderton kicked things off with an early shot before Cummings and Igoe had good chances. However, it was Hollands who finally broke the deadlock heading in an Igoe cross. It only took Bradford four minutes to reply with Colbeck firing in a fierce shot.


The second half only got better for the Cherries with Goulding poking in the impressive Bartley’s cross. Quarter of an hour later Pearce rose to nod home a Cummings corner and ensure the first 3 points of the season.
