BU student on Cherries’ first premiership game

Posted on Tuesday, August 11 2015

Sara Foss is an MSc International Accounting and Finance student. She was the lucky winner of two tickets to AFC Bournemouth´s first premier league match against Aston Villa on Saturday 8 August 2015. Sara tells us about her day:

“I was super excited as I’ve never been to a premier league match before and it made it even better being able to support AFC Bournemouth. I’ve grown so fond of this city while doing my masters degree here!

“I chose to bring my friend from university. You could feel the excitement and anticipation around Bournemouth town in the early morning hours, which grew even stronger as we were walking towards the stadium.

“When we arrived at the stadium we were meet by thousands of AFC Bournemouth fans (and a couple of Aston Villa fans) and everyone was so happy and excited about the game. We had great seats behind the goal and the atmosphere at the stadium was fantastic.

“AFC Bournemouth dominated the first half and it was so much fun to watch. Unfortunately Aston Villa scored during second half and won the match 1-0.

“Even though we didn’t win, it was still an amazing experience to be a part of and I’m sure we’ll both remember this day for a long time. It was clearly one of the most fun experiences I have had during my year in Bournemouth.”
