Who is Ulster Cherry

A wee bit about your host, Ulster Cherry AKA Jonny Blair
Up the Fucking Cherries

Ulster Cherry was born in Northern Ireland in 1980, visited Bournemouth for the first time in 1994 and fell in love with the Dorset seaside town. An AFC Bournemouth regular from 2003 - 2009, Ulster Cherry now travels for a living and makes it back to Dean Court when he can. He has seen the mighty Cherries live home and away in all four divisions.

It's the Bournemouth boys making all the noise

Ulster Cherry

Party Planner, Media Rep, Dean Court Nomad
With his experience of many cultures, Ulster Cherry plans the parties for the gang. Whether it\’s a relegation scrap in Carlisle or a 1-0 defeat in Bury, there will always be a party when Ulster Cherry is around.

Dan Darch

Cornish Cherry
Dan Darch, often referred to as Cornish Cherry is making all the noise, everywhere he goes, Yann Kermorgant. Darch claims to have been attacked by an umbrella after a home win once.

Austin Sheppard

Local Hero
Austin \”Back of the Net\” Sheppard is the most authentic Cherry on the panel. He even claims he was born on the penalty spot at Dean Court. He is known for his reluctance to wear any kind of football regalia even when we won the League.


Tour Leader
With his skills in management and his expertise at motivating people, Shep is the tour leader for away matches. It has been reported in the media that he got kicked out of Walsall once for sneaking in a bottle of whiskey.

Patrick Hogan

Banter Boy
Hogan is the banter king of the group but also is known for his oddball antics. He once turned up to Carlisle away in a BLUE jumper. I kid you not.

Richard Rowland

Matured Cherry
Rich was once a ripe cherry but he is now the mature one. He often changes nappies at half time and complains at the older members of the group when they swear too much around children.
