Cameron Plain, who is part of AFC Bournemouth’s U18 set up, has been loaned out to Wimborne Town, as reported by The Bournemouth Echo.
The youngster will likely have a tough time getting any sort of opportunities at Vitality Stadium any time soon, due to the level of competition he will face.
Mark Travers and Aaron Ramsdale who are 20 and 21-years-old respectively, have both given a good account of themselves already, so even if Artur Boruc and Asmir Begovic weren’t around, Plain would have a tough time usurping the pair.
Travers may have only made two first-team appearances, but he has already made a significant impression in the Bournemouth goal, while he has also received his first call up to the Republic of Ireland national team squad.
On his Cherries debut, against Tottenham Hotspur, he made five saves to keep the opposition out and help earn a 1-0 win (as per WhoScored) – the pick of his saves came from a flying stop to deny Dele Alli’s header.
Ramsdale hasn’t made an appearance at Vitality Stadium yet but has certainly been impressive in the early stages of his career.
His biggest achievement on the international stage to date is that he was the goalkeeper for England as they went on to win the U19 Euros in 2017.
He also went on loan to AFC Wimbledon for the second half of last season where he kept seven clean sheets in 23 games in all competitions and became a popular figure, enjoying a good rapport with supporters (as highlighted by Fan Banter).
Going out on loan should be a good experience for Plain and even though he will be hoping to climb the leagues, he may need to get used to leaving Vitality Stadium if he is to get first-team experience.
As for Travers and Ramsdale, it will be interesting to see if either of them are able to topple Begovic and become the club’s main goalkeeper this season.
