Poole Town Cricket Club: Local Talent Shines as Cricket Returns

When gyms first re-opened and other sports were re-started under strict measures, cricket continued to be overlooked. A cricket ball can be a terrifying object when hurled at you from 22 yards by a burly fast bowler. But it is doubtful even the Coronavirus could believe its association with the red leather. So despite initial plans for cricket to return in early June, teams across the county were again forced to wait, including local side Poole Town Cricket Club...

Georgia Hall Wins Cambia Portland Classic for her First Major US Victory

A visibly emotional and understandably choked-up Georgia Hall wiped away tears of joy after she won the Cambia Portland Classic. A deep sigh of relief and wry giggle as she said, “I am just so happy!” in response to how she felt. Deservedly so! 14 years of hard work, dedication and sacrifice came to fruition with Georgia claiming her first US title...

Youth Development: The Key for Poole Town Ladies Football Club

With financial concern and facility funding being a frequent issue for many clubs in the lower professional tiers, the method of generating hometown talent through the club’s youth teams is certainly an intriguing one.

AFC Bournemouth — Season Preview

The Cherries captured their first piece of silverware since 2014 - the prestigious Betway Cup. So, the question is, can they carry that momentum into the Championship to gain their second league trophy? Answer… possibly. Even without the team’s top talents, (Callum Wilson close to finalising a move to the Toon; David Brooks, Josh King, Mark Travers and Lloyd Kelly on international duty, and captain Cook rested), Bournemouth still put on a superb display. Worthy of an AFCB TV subscription fee. Goals came thick and fast in the capital as the Cherries knocked five -- yes five -- past the Hammers...

David G Taylor, Artist / Writer

My artwork sometimes features textile-like abstract patterns and colours that reference artists such as Alexander Calder and Joan Miro. I’ve developed a language of ambiguous shapes and marks that could be read as purely decorative, but on closer inspection suggests otherwise. As a collagist, I’m influenced by the Dada and Pop Art movements. There's also definitely a Punk aesthetic. I’m obsessed with lurid Day-Glo colours, and I’m trying not just to appropriate photographs, but often to annihilate them...
