Councillor Drew Mellor, Leader of BCP Council said:
“I am absolutely thrilled that AFC Bournemouth have been promoted to the Premier League for a second time. The commitment this young team has shown throughout the season has been magnificent, and their connection to the town and fans is something we can all be immensely proud of.
“It was fantastic to see the style and passion that the club are known for harnessed to achieve a memorable win and score a goal that will go down in AFC Bournemouth history.
“Being in the Premier League once again, and all the attention that brings around the globe, will benefit everyone who lives in our world-class region. All residents across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole can congratulate the club, Scott Parker and the players on a truly brilliant achievement.”
