*NB Although officially Athletic Football Club Bournemouth, the name is more commonly shortened to A F C Bournemouth to differentiate from Bournemouth Football Club. As the term 'Football Club' is not used in the names on this site of other teams, it has been left out here to create the name Athletic Bournemouth. It's noted that this is an unusual term almost never used elsewhere to descibe the club.
