Jay Saunders has got his centre back today the Stones have signed Cherries under-21s player Jake McCarthy on loan until the end of the season.
Jake McCarthy joined the AFC Bournemouth Academy at the age of 12 and can play as a centre back or a holding midfielder. Jake signed a two-year professional deal with the Cherries in 2015.
Can Jake prevent the Stones defence from capitulating during matches, we really hope so.
Jay has been desperate to sign a centre back with league experience, the question now is who will feature alongside him?
