Saydee impresses on Bournemouth debut

Christian Saydee came off the bench to score and assist on his professional debut leaving head coach Scott Parker “pleased” for the 19-year-old.

Having played a part in the 2-1 defeat against Chelsea in midweek, Saydee also played for the under 21’s the following day against Fulham. 

Despite losing 3-1, the striker was able to get on the score sheet and it is that determination and commitment to playing that has impressed Parker.

He added: “The boy has shown some resilience and shown some character and has got himself into a position to do what he has done today really, so it was fully deserved.”

Solanke is the first choice striker at Vitality Stadium this season and another promising academy graduate in Sam Surridge is the deputy, but as seen against The Dons, when Surridge is unavailable there is a third option Parker can turn to.

Competition for places is key to any successful side and with Bournemouth they now appear to have that in the centre-forward position.
