15 years ago, AFC Bournemouth were about to begin a fourth straight season in League One and at that point they would not realise the extreme lows and highs they would reach in the next few years.
Just a couple of years later, the Cherries were both in League Two and in administration, their existence as a club completely threatened until the summer of 2009 when they were taken over – and that started the rise up the leagues.
Promotion in 2010 was followed by another in 2013 to the Championship, and Premier League football was delivered by Eddie Howe in 2015 to make it three promotions in five years.
Bournemouth spent four happy years in the top flight before an unsuccessful fifth was their downfall – the 2019-20 campaign spelt the end of Howe and Championship football returned to Dean Court.
