Bournemouth Bobcats

The Bournemouth Bobcats is an English American football team based in Bournemouth, Dorset competing in the National Division South of the BAFA Community Leagues. The team's home ground is at Chapel Gate, Bournemouth. BH23 6BL.

The club was originally formed in 1986, winning the Budweiser Premier Bowl in 1997 and playing in the league's top division between 1988 and 1991 before folding. The Bobcats reformed in 2009 and entered BAFA Community Leagues as an associate member in 2010. The newly formed Bobcats played 5 games (2-3) over the 2010 summer months, concluding with a 34-12 win over Bristol Apache away.


In 2011 the Bournemouth Bobcats stepped into their first competitive season in American Football since the early 90's. After losing their opening three matches the Bobcats bounced back against the Gloucester Banshees beating them both away then at home to go 2-3 with a new offensive co-ordinator. In following games the Bobcats lost away at South Wales and at home to the eventual Division Winners Reading in a close game. The Bobcats then had a fantastic win against the well established Cornish Sharks beating them at home 20-12. Following another win against their main rivals the Bristol Apache at home and a loss in the final game to South Wales the Bobcats ended their first season 4-6, which is very unheard of for a new team in the league to have more than 1 or 2 wins.

In 2012 the Bobcats saw an improvement with a 5-4-1 season, coming third in the BAFA Division 2 West.

2013 sees a change in roles for coaching staff, with a few players missing due to other commitments and a few new rookies entering the frame.
