About Bournemouth
Bournemouth (listen) is a coastal resort town on the south coast of England. At the 2011 census, the town had a population of 183,491, making it the largest in the administrative county of Dorset. With Poole to the west and Christchurch in the east, Bournemouth is part of the South East Dorset conurbation, which has a population of 465,000.
Before it was founded in 1810 by Lewis Tregonwell, the area was a deserted heathland occasionally visited by fishermen and smugglers. Initially marketed as a health resort, the town received a boost when it appeared in Augustus Granville’s 1841 book, The Spas of England. Bournemouth’s growth accelerated with the arrival of the railway, and it became a town in 1870. Historically part of Hampshire, it joined Dorset with the reorganisation of local government in 1974. Through local government changes in 1997, the town began to be administered by a unitary authority independent of Dorset County Council, although it remains part of that ceremonial county. Since April 2019 the unitary authority has been merged with that of Poole, as well as the non-metropolitan district of Christchurch to create the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole unitary authority.
The town centre has notable Victorian architecture and the 202-foot (62 m) spire of St Peter’s Church, one of three Grade I listed churches in the borough, is a local landmark. Bournemouth’s location has made it a popular destination for tourists, attracting over five million visitors annually with its beaches and popular nightlife. The town is also a regional centre of business, home of the Bournemouth International Centre or BIC, and a financial sector that is worth more than £1,000 million in gross value added.

Everton v Bournemouth LIVE

Everton play their final Premier League fixture this afternoon when they take on AFC Bournemouth at Goodison Park.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men will be hoping to finish the campaign as strongly as possible and improve on their current position of 11th after Monday’s win at Sheffield United.

The visitors know they need to win to have any chance of avoiding relegation and would still need other results to go their way should they get three points.

Ancelotti is still without Mason Holgate, Fabian Delph and Yerry Mina for the game, meaning youngster Jarrad Branthwaite could get another chance to build on his superb performance at Bramall Lane, with Moise Kean also pushing for a first start since January.

Everton 1-3 Bournemouth

Everton succumb to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth.

The Cherries were better than their hosts in every department at Goodison Park and it was a very lacklustre performance from the Blues.

Goals from King, Solanke and Stanislas and one in reply from Moise Kean were the difference in Carlo Ancelotti’s first home defeat as Everton boss.

A 12th place finish in the Premier Leage for the Blues, Bournemouth are relegated after Aston Villa earned a draw at West Ham.
