Jason Tindall the Bournemouth coach in an interview with Tom Crocker for the Daily Echo, revealed Ajani Burchall could be just the tip of the iceberg of talented youngsters within the Cherries academy.
The Bermudian was a surprise inclusion last month when he was plucked from the under-18s and given his senior debut off the bench in a 5-0 Championship win over Huddersfield Town.
Burchall became the third-youngest player in the club's history in the process, aged 16.
He was also an unused substitute for the trip to Luton Town the following weekend.
Asked if he had his eye on any more talented youngsters within the club, Tindall told the Daily Echo: "There is, but I won’t be naming them because as we know there’s always vultures ready to take your best players!
"But I can’t speak highly enough of the work that they’re doing there.
"You’ve got Joe Roach there and Bruce Suraci that are behind that with the effort and commitment that all the coaches put in to developing the players within the academy."
Discussing handing Burchall a shock debut, Tindall added: "There will be a lot of people that are happy in the academy. It's great for me to be able to involve Ajani and play him, but it’s a reward for all the guys that have worked so hard with him to be able to get him to this point to give him this opportunity."
