Bournemouth ball boy becomes internet sensation with excellent touchline skullduggery

Bournemouth had already taken the lead and the ball boy at the Vitality couldn't help but wind up the Spurs players even further.

You don’t seen enough of this in my opinion.

Not since Eden Hazard ‘kicked’ a ball boy for withholding the ball have any youngsters had the bottle to try it again.

During the Bournemouth v Spurs in the Premier League today one of the ball boys took his chance to shine when the ball came his way.

The cheeky chap firstly refused to give the ball back to Jan Vertonghen to take a throw in and then upped the stakes by throwing the ball at the Spurs centre back.

The assistant referee had to step in and give the young man a good telling off for his behaviour.

And things got even more heated when one of the senior stewards came and added his two cents to the situation.

Time wasting with 20 minutes gone

All of this was captured on Sky’s cameras and it made for brilliant TV as Vertonghen and the yet unnamed hero were left two swap daggers at each other from just a few yards away.

It was a fine piece of dastardly behaviour from the ball boy as his team had taken the lead against Spurs after an electric start to the game.

To be fair there was only 20 minutes on the clock when it happened and it was clear than Bournemouth were already thinking about protecting their lead so any time wasting helped a lot.

Tense.

Junior Stanislas wasted a beautiful chance after the Cherries found themselves with two players bearing down on Hugo Lloris.

Eddie Howe winced as Stanislas lifted the ball over Lloris only to see it cannon back off the crossbar and out of reach of the onrushing Bournemouth players.

However, he made up for it by slamming one home after he was left unmarked at the back post.

“Don’t do it so obviously next time!”

But back to the best action of the first half, the ball boy v Vertonghen and it’s fair to say social media had found their hero for the day.

However in the second half our minds were blown by the revelation that the ball boy has a (possibly evil) identical twin… who is also a ball boy at the game.

This is probably the strangest ball boy related incident we have seen in the Premier League for some time.

But we can’t disagree with some of the comments on Twitter…
