WEXFORD lad Kevin O'Connor will find out later this week if he's done enough to earn a move to Championship high-fliers Bournemouth.

The teenage defender, who lined out for Waterford United in Division One last season, had already been on trial at Hull City in recent weeks but the Cherries also invited O'Connor to join them for a trial.

He lined out for Bournemouth's reserves earlier this week and boss Eddie Howe, who previously raided the League of Ireland to sign Longford Town striker Josh O'Hanlon, will make a decision on whether to offer U17 cap O'Connor a contract.
