Jordan Zemura Named Bournemouth’s Player Of The Month
5 September 2021
Zimbabwe international defender Jordan Zemura has been voted the player of the month of August at the English Championship side Bournemouth after an impressive start to the season.
The 21-year-old rising star was one of the four nominees for the Player of the Month Award for August at the club alongside central midfielder Phillip Billing, striker Dominic Solanke and winger Jaidon Anthony.

After a 24 hour poll on the club’s social media accounts, the Bournemouth fans settled for the talented Zimbabwean after he secured the most votes.
Three-goal star Solanke came second while Anthony and Billing came third and fourth respectively among the fan vote.
The Warriors left-back made his first EFL league start of the season in the league opener against West Bromwich Albion and hasn’t looked back, starting each game since, contributing to two clean sheets and the Cherries’ unbeaten Championship start.
Zemura’s good form has been pivotal for the promotion-chasing Cherries who are currently enjoying an unbeaten start to the English Championship with three draws and two wins in their first five matches.
The London-born Zimbabwean has not missed a minute of action in Bournemouth’ opening five games, ever since he was called in to fill the gap following Jack Stacey’s injury on the eve of the Championship season.
Unfortunately, the versatile defender who can play at left-back or in midfield was barred from representing Zimbabwe in the World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Ethiopia because of the travel restrictions imposed by the UK government.
Both Zimbabwe and Ethiopia are on the UK Government’s red list for travel amid coronavirus restrictions.
