Warriors left-back Jordan Zemura will be playing in the English Premier League next season after his AFC Bournemouth side was promoted to the top flight on Tuesday night.
The Cherries earned automatic promotion from the English Championship to the English Premier League following their 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.
Zemura played a crucial role in the goal after he won a free‑kick near the 18-yard line.
Kieffer Moore scored the only goal of the match after Philip Billing passed the ball to him instead of tacking a crack on goal from the free-kick.
Bournemouth are guaranteed the second spot on the Championship log which gave them, and Fulham, who are in pole position, automatic promotion to the EPL.
With only one round of fixtures left before the end of the Championship season (excluding play-offs), Fulham are leading the pack with 90 points, Bournemouth are second on 85 points, and Nottingham Forest occupy the third spot with 79 points.
Speaking after the match, Bournemouth manager Scott Parker said he was proud of his charges. He said:
This group are a special group. I’m immensely proud of what they’ve done. They deserve their moment and they deserve to be in the Premier League.
Zemura will join fellow Warriors team-mate Marvelous Nakamba in the EPL. Nakamba plays for Aston Villa who will most likely preserve their top-flight status.
The Cherries, meanwhile, return to the top-flight two years after their relegation in 2020.
