"It will take some time to sink in really because we've been so intense and the games have come so quickly that you really do focus on each one as though your life depends on it and then when its over its difficult to sum up how you feel.

Cherries youth team set to shave heads for charity

AFC Bournemouth's youth team are defying the stereotype of modern footballers by shaving their heads to raise money for EB charity DEBRA, after meeting inspirational local youngster Mason White.

Joe Roach, Carl Fletcher and the youth team met five-year-old Mason, who suffers from the uncurable skin condition epidermolysis bullosa (EB), at the end of August and were so moved with his plight that they decided to shave their heads to raise awareness and funds.

EB affects around 5,000 people in the UK and means that sufferers are missing the important sticky layer of protein, collagen seven, that binds layers of skin together and as a result, Mason has his skin bandaged up to prevent blistering caused by even the slightest of knocks.
