Bournemouth midfielder Mark Molesley has made his first appearance in a Cherries shirt for over a year.

Molesley injured his foot back in October 2009 but came through 60 minutes unscathed in the reserve team game against Exeter on Tuesday.

He told the club's official website: "The foot felt good, obviously it aches a bit now, but it actually feels better when I'm playing football than it does in everyday life, and I would rather it was that way round.

"It is so good to get back because you do feel out of it when you're not involved for so long.

"I'd be lying if I said that all I was thinking about was getting fit, because getting into the first team is my only goal.

"I know I will have to bide my time and wait for an opportunity, because no one is going to walk straight into the team."
