'It Was A Really Special Night' - Eddie Howe Remembers Squad Unity In Face Of Harry Arter Tragedy
By PJ Browne Updated

With a game to go in the Premier League season, safety is already assured for Bournemouth. Currently sitting 16th, they could yet finish as high as 12th.

One of the club's most memorable results this season was a 2-1 win against Man Utd at Dean Court in December.

That was also a time of tremendous sorrow for the club and in particular for Harry Arter.

Just days before the game, the Ireland international and his partner had lost a child at birth. Arter played that game, giving a Man of the Match performance.

Speaking to Bournemouth Daily Echo, manager Eddie Howe remembered the united front which his squad put up that day both on and off the pitch.

The Manchester United game will always have that link with Harry and his personal situation.

My memories immediately link to that moment and how well the squad united. It was a really special night.

Harry’s performance and the character he showed was incredible in the face of what and his family had been through at that time.

It was a really emotional night before the game but also afterwards. It just goes to show how well we support each other.
