Bournemouth-born ‘Bournemouth’ star turns 40 – ITV
Bournchers are turning 40 and have been joined by their star, a former Chelsea player who is set to be remembered in his hometown of Bourn.
The Bourncher brothers, who also play in the Premier League, will return to Bourn in the coming weeks to attend the opening of the new St Mary’s Academy.
The Academy opened in April and has a full complement of more than 100 children from the Bourners’ home town.
Their mother, Carol, said: “I’m really proud of them, and I think they have an amazing future ahead of them.”
The Baunchers played in the European Cup Winners’ Cup and also played in this season’s FA Cup.
They were born in Bourn, north of Bury, but moved to the seaside town of Taunton, Merseyside, with their parents when they were nine.
Carol, who has been an administrator with Bourn Council for more than a decade, said she was proud to have been able to provide the Bauncher family with a special home.
She said: “[The academy] gives children from across Bourn a chance to get an education.
It gives them a chance and a place to grow.”
I feel lucky to be able to help so many kids in the Baudley area get a chance at this great football club.
“It’s been a long time coming and I’m so grateful for all the support and help from everyone.”
Bourncher fans can follow the club on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
A spokesman for Bourn City said the club was aware of the situation and was aware that the Burchys were planning to return to the area for the next few months.
He said: We are aware of this situation and are working closely with the Bedders to assist the Bursons in their planning.
“The Burchies have also been given permission to come back to Beddys training ground, which will allow them to enjoy their training on a regular basis.”
This will not affect the regular training sessions we run for all our players and we have always offered the Bancers a place at the training ground.
