23 players have been named by Eddie Howe for their South West Tour and all of them are currently travelling down to Bath.
The squad is as follows:
Brian Jensen, Lee Grant; Michael Duff, Tyrone Mears, Brian Easton, Andre Bikey, Danny Fox, David Edgar, Ben Mee, Kevin Long; Wade Elliott, Chris McCann, Chris Eagles, Dean Marney, Ross Wallace, Marvin Bartley, Steven Hewitt, Martin Paterson, Jay Rodriguez, Charlie Austin, Wes Fletcher, Alex MacDonald.
It looks like the club delayed announcing the squad until it was made official that Chris Iwelumo would be leaving for Watford and that move has now been confirmed.
Just one senior player has failed to make the squad and that is centre back,Leon Cort. His failure to make the tour will fuel speculation that his days at Turf Moor are numbered.
Young 17 year old midfielder, Steven Hewitt as previously announced is also a surprise addition and he appears to be highly rated by Eddie Howe after impressing in the Reserves last season.
Only two other players though from the development squad have been included with both Kevin Long and Wes Fletcher making the trip.
A number of other development squad players featured in the previous two pre-season friendlies but there is no place now for trialist keeper, Jon Stewart, Alex-Ray Harvey, Dominic Knowles or Medhi Lazaar
It will now be interesting to see what the line-ups and subs bench will look like for our two pre-season friendlies in the South West, starting tonight with our game against Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium. We then play Torquay on Saturday at Plainmoor.
