Irishman Mark Travers joined AFC Bournemouth in July 2016 as a 17-year-old following a successful trial spell.

He started out as a schoolboy with Dublin-based Cherry Orchard before joining the youth ranks at Shamrock Rovers in July 2015, playing in the SSE Airtricity Under-17 League.

Travers initially worked with the Cherries under-21s at Vitality Stadium before being elevated to the first-team squad under goalkeeper coach Neil Moss.

He spent the first half of the 2017/18 season on loan to Southern Premier League Weymouth.

And he hit the headlines when he scored the winning goal on his debut in August 2017. His chip from inside his own half earned the Terras a 3-2 win at Bishop's Stortford in the Southern Premier League.

In July 2018, Travers signed a new long-term contract with the Cherries.

In April 2019, he helped the Cherries win the Central League Cup, keeping a clean sheet in a 2-0 win against Notts County in the final at Meadow Lane.

On the international front, Travers has represented the Republic of Ireland at under-15, under-16, under-18 and under-19 level.

In March 2019, Travers was called up by Mick McCarthy to the full squad. He was an unused substitute in Euro 2020 qualifiers against Gibraltar and Georgia
