Bournemouth starlet targets first team role

6th December 2018, 13:11 by Gareth Freeman

Sam Surridge, 20, hopes to impress during his loan stay at Oldham and battle for a first team place when he returns to Bournemouth.

The striker joined League Two outfit Oldham on a season-long loan deal over the summer and has been in fine form for the Latics with nine goals in 13 appearances in all competitions.

Surridge signed a new deal with the Cherries this week and is now under contract until 2021, and the forward is keen to fight for a place in the Bournemouth side when his temporary stay at Boundary Park comes to an end.

"I’ve been doing well out on loan and it’s almost like being rewarded for what I've been doing and it’s going well so far," he told the Bournemouth website.

"I scored quite a few goals in my first few months and I felt sharp and was really enjoying my football. Unfortunately I suffered an injury and didn’t play for five weeks, but I played my first 90 minutes in the FA Cup on Saturday.

"I need to get fir and over the injury, it’s OK having your leg feel OK but getting that sharpness back is key really. But it’s been a really good experience so far and I’m enjoying it.

"To be playing football at my age in the league is great, it will give me lots of experience for when I come and back and hopefully that will stand me in good stead to be around the first team.

"I’ve had lots of good experiences out on loan so far and it’s almost been an upwards curve. I want to keep playing and keep scoring and see what happens. I want to keep showing that I have earned the new deal."
