Conference News: Bournemouth Keen On Smith

Bournemouth manager Kevin Bond has told the Daily Echo, "I would certainly be very interested in taking Ben Smith from Weymouth. He's a good player.

"I know he's somebody that Garry Hill thinks an awful lot of because he's just signed a new contract (until June 2009).

"Garry would not have wanted to lose him under any circumstances, but he's no longer there and the club appears to be going in a new direction.

"He scores goals from midfield, he's got bags of energy and is somebody I would like to bring to Bournemouth."
